It Won't Work This Time

Allison Krauss & Union Station


         G                                            C                           G

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

                                   D                     G

Left a note sayin' momma won't be back

          G                                         C                        G

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

                              D                         G

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
