Short Sweet Ride lyrics

(Alan Jackson, Jim McBride)

I could see it coming from a mile away
A heartache lookin' for a place to stay
But I couldn't resist her and I couldn't be cool
Lord can't a woman make a man a fool

(Chorus)
It's an age-old story but it still holds true
There ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman 'til he go insane
It's a short sweet ride om a runaway train

I was drunk and crazy from her sweet perfume
But I knew stone sober I was being used
Now the heartache lingers like a cheap cologne

(Chorus)

It was almost worth it for the time we spent
But there ain't no future in a heart for rent
Still she taught me something 'bout the facts of life
Love cuts quicker than a switchblade knife

(Chorus)

It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train
