lyrics

You’re sitting at the table
watching jacks fly around
making bets you can’t pay
letting chips fall to the ground

made your money selling your torture
made your friends by being so lonely
got your name hiding what you knew
they couldn’t pin it on you, pin it on you

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me

got your hands in your pockets
clutching at the fabric of a green, green dress
it’s the last that you took from her
on the day that she left, the day that she left

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me
don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me

you get up and your chair tips back
bullets are flying and you laugh laugh laugh

just give up, you won’t get her back
smoke is rising and you laugh laugh laugh

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me
