(Jim McBride - Alan Jackson)
  '89 April Music 

I could see it coming from a mile away a heartache looking for a place to stay
But I couldn't resist her and I couldn't be cool Lord can't a woman make a man a fool
It's an age-old story but it still holds true there ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman till he go insane it's a short sweet ride om a runaway train

I was drunk and crazy from her sweet perfume
But I knew stone sober I was being used
Now the heartache lingers like a cheap cologne
She took all she wanted then she was gone
It's an age-old story...
[ fiddle - guitar ]
It was almost worth it for the time we spent
But there ain't no future in a heart for rent
Still she taught me something bout the facts of life
Love cuts quicker than a switchblade knife
It's an age-old story...
It's an age-old story...
Short sweet ride om a runaway train
