Came home yesterday,
After slavin' for my pay,
Only to find that I'd been used.

I cannot believe,
That woman smoked up all my weed,
And now I've got pipe resin blues.

Ya coulda left somethin',
Butcha left nothin',
Now what am I to do?

I checked in my pockets,
Behind all the sockets,
And up in the chimney flue.

Up in the closet, my safety deposit,
Nothing was safe from you.

Why do I hide it,
If you're gonna find it, too.

No use to defend,
I know you'll just do it again,
And then we'll fight until we bleed.

I'm down on my knees,
Begging please, sweet baby, please,
Next time around, leave some for me.
