about

Again, inspired by a role-playing game. The mandolin on this track was played by Heather Alexander.

lyrics

I threw myself at someone and he dropped me with a thump,
Left me spittin' dirt and sittin' on a smartin' rump
I picked me up and brushed me down and made the dust to fly
I'm as good as any who can look me in the eye.

Well, sure enough I'm sorry, and I dropped a sigh or three
That the one I really wanted really wasn't wanting me,
But I've got better things to do than sit around and cry--
I'm as good as any who can look me in the eye.

So when I heard the music, sure I came to join the fun.
Ready for a dance, perhaps a kiss when we are done.
But where I see no interest, I'll not bother to apply;
I'm as good as any who can look me in the eye.

If someone isn't interested, you take them at their words,
The sea is full of fishes and the bushes full of birds.
The bloom is off the rose? well there are buds in good supply,
And you're as good as any who can look you in the eye.
