"Big Harlan Taylor" lyrics

Big Harlan Taylor

I once had a sweetheart
The fairest of maidens
She out shined all others
That I'd known by far

I had a friend, big fella
Name of Big Harlan Taylor
Harlan had a rubber-tired
New shiny car

Oh, the ways of the world
And the wants of a woman
If l figured them all out
It would take many years

By the wants of a woman
She fell for Big Harlan
I tried but in vain
For to take my own life
Suddenly l had lost
All my will to keep living
She'd lost her desire
To become my young wife

Oh, the ways of the world
And the wants of a woman
If I figured them all out
It would take many years

Well, I wanted revenge
And waylaid for Big Harlan
Then I started wondering
What good would it do?

If a rubber-tired new
Shiny car's her ambition
Then I'll just let her have it
And Big Harlan too

Oh, the ways of the world
And the wants of a woman
If I figured them all out
It would take many years

If l figured them all out
It would take many years
