"You can kill a man with bullets poison or a knife
But it hurts him more to take his pride and run his life"
There are dozens of versions of this song. This is the one. Songwriter Harlan Howard wrote thousands of (mostly country) songs. I'd hold this up against any of them. It's another Swamp Dogg production, a classic soul/blues record made in Nashville and performed by Z.Z. Hill.
