Poor Damned Fool Lyrics

Artist: Harry Chapin
Album: Living Room Suite

You're a livin' walkin' dream
You're the best I've ever seen,
Oh God I wanted you.
I've often dreamed what I would do,
If I could give myself to you,
Oh God I wanted to.
But up 'til now you've not been free to be
Foolin' around with the likes of me.
But it's changed now, though it's strange how,
He's the one that arranged it now.

But he's a poor damned fool
'Cause he went and let you go now.
Just a poor damned fool.
He never will know now.
Maybe someday he'll be sad.
I say that that's too bad,
He never knew how much he had.
I'm glad I got you now.

Yes I've had my ups and downs
As I've been ramblin' around
And I'll be candid.
I could not believe my eyes
When I finally realized
Just what that man did.
Yes I've heard 'bout finders keepers
And how losers are the weepers, it's OK,
I know it's my lucky day
Still I just got to say . . .

That he's a poor damned fool
'Cause he went and let you go now.
Just a poor damned fool.
He never will know now.
Maybe someday he'll be sad.
I say that that's too bad,
He never knew how much he had.
I'm glad I got you now.

Oh how I'd love to hear you say
You're glad that it worked out this way
And you'll forget about yesterday
'Cause you feel so good.
It's worked out real good.
You make me feel so good.

I've been tryin' to find a way to cope
With grasping straws And fallen hopes.
But he's made a way
And now his misfortune is my gain.
Though for now it gives you pain
It'll fade away
And you'll find that as the years roll by
The memories of the time you cried
Will be laid away
Yes, they'll fade away

And you'll forget that poor damned fool
'Cause he went and let you go now.
Just a poor damned fool.
He never will know now.
Maybe someday he'll be sad.
I say that that's too bad
He never knew how much he had.
I'm glad I got you now.
He was a poor damn fool.
