      About "The Fighter"

      Lyrics for Kris Kristofferson - "The Fighter"

      I seen an old fighter, tired and in trouble
      Who just couldn't take anymore
      Somethin' inside him kept fighting to finish
      With only his feet on the floor-yeah

      Lord, I know that it's worth any price you could pay
      To see truth in whatever disguise
      But I'd payed double for one look of pleasure
      A piece of relief in his eyes.

      Ain't that clown, laughin' like crazy
      Ain't his eyes empty and deep
      Don't he sound sad as a baby
      When she cries out in her sleep

      We measured the space between Waylon and Willie
      And Willie and Waylon and me
      But there wasn't nothin' like Billy Jo Shaver
      What Billy Jo Shaver should be-no

      When he showed up sick later all bit by a spider
      And crazy to look in the eye
      He put on a show that was sad as it should of been
      And nobody even knew why

      Ain't that clown laughin' like crazy
      Ain't his eyes empty and deep
      Don't he sound sad as a baby
      When she cries out in her sleep
