Alison Krauss – It Won’t Work This Time Lyrics

(Aubrey Holt/BMI)

You walked up yesterday and you told me you were leavin’

Left a note sayin’ momma won’t be back

But you’ll come back and I’ve got news for you dear

You won’t have a home and that’s a fact

Don’t you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness

Pack your bags and move on down the line

Don’t you roll them eyes at me, tellin’ me your sorry

It’s too late babe, and it won’t work this time

I’ve always been around, Lord when you needed someone

I played the role ’til I knew each line by heart

But now it’s time to change, won’t you find another playmate

Someone who’ll be glad to play the part

Don’t you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness

Pack your bags and move on down the line

Don’t you roll them eyes at me, tellin’ me your sorry

It’s too late babe, and it won’t work this time

Don’t you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness

Pack your bags and move on down the line

Don’t you roll them eyes at me, tellin’ me your sorry

It’s too late babe, and it won’t work this time
