Tryin' hard to be a happy woman.

But sometimes life just overcomes me,
Everyday I'm workin' just to pay my dues.
Lay down at night, my mind is so confused.
Goin' down south with the New York City blues,

Gotta hit the road before I blow a fuse,
I might buy me a Cadillac or a Chevrolet.
I don't care what model as long as it takes me away

I've been hiding my heart in a trunk.

Can you come see me when my ship has sunk
You can give me lovin, that I can't refuse,
And love is the one thing that's sure to cure my blues.
Goin' down the road with a heavy heart,

Tryin' to find lightness in the dark,
Tryin' to live my life, tryin' to get satisfied.
My mind is in the city but my heart is in the countryside.

Tryin' hard to be a happy woman.

But sometimes life just overcomes me,
Everyday I'm workin' just to pay my dues.
Lay down at night, my mind is so confused.
Lay down at night, my mind is so confused.
