Big Harlan Taylor (Album Version)

Big Harlan Taylor (Album Version)

Roger Miller

I once had a sweetheart, the fairest of maidens
She outshined all others that I'd known by far
I had a friend, big fella, name of big Harlan Taylor
Harlan had a rubber-tyred new shiny car

Oh the ways of the world, and the wants of a woman
If l figured them all out, would take many years

By the wants of a woman she fell for big Harlan
L tried but in vain for to take my own life
Suddenly I had lost all my will to keep livin'
She'd lost her desire to become my young wife

Oh the ways of the world, and the wants of a woman
If l figured them all out, would take many years

Well I wanted revenge, and waylaid for big harlan
Then I started wondering, what good would it do?
If a rubber-tyred new shiny car's her ambition
Then I'll just let her have it, and big Harlan too

Oh the ways of the world, and the wants of a woman
If I figured them all out, would take many years
If I figured them all out, would take many years
