Payback's a Bitch - Blackberry Smoke

Red sky this morning
Was not much of a warning
For what you had planned for me
Hell hath no fury
She's the judge and she's my jury
She pulled the world
Right out from under my feet

I'll take it like a man
No need of feeling sorry for me
But you better understand
Karma is about a step behind me

If I were you, I'd sleep with one eye open
I'd keep praying keep hoping
You oughta be watching your back
If I were you, I'd be looking over my shoulder
'Cause every day gets closer to what's coming for you
Payback's a b_tch

Don't be so foolish
As to think you made it thru this
Smelling like a rose and fancy free
Don't think you wrecked it
I'll get you when you least suspect it
And tear down that old tangled web you weave

You're looking at a man
Shining happy like a brand new penny
I bet you're looking for a friend
Everybody's got a hand that's empty

If I were you, I'd sleep with one eye open
I'd keep praying keep hoping
You oughta be watching your back
If I were you, I'd be looking over my shoulder
'Cause every day gets closer to what's coming for you
Payback's a b_tch

If I were you I'd be careful of the stones I'm throwing
I'd be blowing on the dice I'm rolling
You oughta be watching your back
If I were you I'd be looking 'round every corner
Ain't nobody ever gonna warn ya
You know that it's true
Payback's a b_tch
