Said you never meant let me down
You never meant to make me cry
Those weren’t tears you just stole my crown
And you spit in my eye

I really hope you’re happy now
You've been living off your daddy's dime
You headed out to California
Just to wait for him to die

I’ve been thinking about your laugh
I remember just how it went
You told a joke to some folks you don’t know
And it didn’t make sense

Take a look at who’s laughing now
Take a look at who made it right
You say it’s spite just for me to wipe
The spit from my eye

When you feel the western breeze
Does it make you think of me
When I was there you didn’t seem to care
You just kept blowing by me

How long you gonna keep this up?
How long you gonna tie me down?
You keep a box on your bedside table
Filled with jewels from my crown

Hide away til you get old
You’re better off on your own
Tell your lies to a passerby
And let 'em take you home

Did you ever find any gold
In the hills where I heard you cry
Those aren’t tears I just finally know
Somebody spit in your eye
