Don't Give A Hang

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

Don't give a hang, tell why I should
Don't give a hang, 'bout Hollywood
Don't give a hang, it's understood
Don't give a hang, I'm just no good

I used to care 'bout everything
I used to care enough to sing
I used to care enough to cry
I used to care to still ask why

Well I don't care what's on the news
I sit and stare, prefer the blues
Prefer the chair I never use
Prefer the rain in Syracuse

Don't give a hang, and that's for sure
For supermarket music in my ear
Don't give a hang 'bout telephones
That follow you when you leave home

You think I'm proud to be this way
Oh I ain't proud, I'm just dismayed
Hang by myself, don't get around
Everyone I know just gets me down

Except for you, this much is clear
Except for you, I'm outa here
Except for you, I'd break and run
Except for you, it's none on none

Don't give a hang, it's understood
Don't give a hang, I'm just no good
