Clean Your Own Tables - Johnny Cash

Well now she ain't exactly what you'd call your all American girl
And some too many truckers took her home
And I'll admid her life would read just like a paperback
And some of what she's done I've said it's wrong

But I said clean your own tables boys and bring out your beer
Cause she ain't gonna do it this time
And drink to a use to be barmaid cause she's a lady I choose to be mine

And I ain't exactly been what you call your all American boy
I've done my time in Frisco in LA
How some of youth are taking pride in what I am
I heard you cussing this decision that I've made

But I said clean your own tables...

And I'll admid her life would read just like a paperback
And some of what she's done well I say is wrong

But I said clean your own tables...
Boys if you're able clean your own tables and let me take care of mine
