lyrics

Poor girl, there is a reason, there is a reason why everthing goes.
Poor girl, ain't no use in pleasin, there is a reason why everything goes,
there is a reason why everything goes.

Poor girl, wake in the morning, pull up them blankets your feet will be cold.
Poor girl, work in the winter, outside them horses will watch you grow old.
Outside them horses will watch you grow old.

Oh, outside, the merchants are buyin'.
Looks like the coal it is the first thing to go.
Seems so clear that your money's no good here,
outside all of them horses they are all that you'll ever know.
Outside all of them horses they are all that you'll ever know.

Poor girl, there is a reason, there is a reaon why everything goes.
Poor girl, ain't no use in pleasin, there is a reason why everything goes,
there is a reason why everything goes, there is a reason why everything goes.
