It Ain't Whatcha Eat But The Way How You Chew It

This song is by Delbert McClinton and appears on the album Second Wind (1978) and on the compilation album Ultimate Collection (1999).

She told me
One time not long ago
She said to get out and stay out
And please don't ever speak to me no more

Now I've been waitin'
Like a blind man in the street
Well, I'm not blind baby, baby
I just can't see

I said, "Honey, give me a chance
To make it up to you
I know I ain't been treatin' you
Like I'm supposed to do"

And whoa, these lonely nights
Won't let me be
I don't mind the pain, honey
But I can't stand the misery

I went down to a bar
In my neighborhood
Began to get drunk
And man, I sure did good

Now, here comes a big old stick
With a policeman
Well, don't hit me, no more mister
I'm dyin' fast as I can

Don't hit me, no more mister
I'm dyin' fast as I can
