Always play for you
Lyrics
Copyright © 2005 Jim Ferrie Music

I know I let you down so many ways
I know the hurt you're feelin' deep inside
And ev'ry time you ask me to promise you again
I slip and slide

Seem I ain't much good at doin' anything
(Ex)cept sleep an' eatin' all your food and breath your air
I know you're right to be upset with me
It's never fair, yeah, I'm never fair

An' I ain't always been much good to you
The times that you needed me
But somehow, you pulled us through
And I ain't never been reliable enough
And the only thing you can count on me to do
Is to always play for you

So if you wanna leave I'll understand
So you can stay and I'll just pack my things and go
And anytime you wanna hear my song
Turn up your radio and turn the lights down low

Coz I ain't always been much good to you
The times that you needed me
But somehow, you pulled us through
And I ain't never been reliable enough
And the only thing you can count on me to do
Is to always play for you

I ain't always been much good to you
The times that you needed me
But somehow, you pulled us through
No matter where I play or who I'm playin' to
You can always count on this much to be true
I will always play for you

Simple melody. Nominally verse/chorus structure, but also unusual in that there is a guitar and a Hammond solo each side of a stand-alone verse, emphasising the 'Always play for you' theme. While not 'country', it may be to country fans tastes.

Accomplished radiopaly musician, knowing his limitations in a relationship, acknowledges them and decides to leave his long-suffering partner, but will always play his songs for her. Kind of I will always love you but can't live with you scenario.
