It's a hard pill to swallow, fills my heart with pain
It's a hard pill to swallow, fills my heart with pain
Now, don't you hear me, people, I ain't no lyin' man

I woke up this mornin', I looked up at the sun, I thought about what my baby had done
That was a hard pill to swallow, it filled my heart with pain
Well, don't you hear me, people, I ain't no lyin' man

I went down on the corner, to the paper stand, I caught my baby making love with a man
That was a hard pill to swallow, it filled my heart with pain
Don't you hear me, people, I ain't no lyin' man

Well, the police walked up, and I didn't even run, now I'm serving my time, and my babe out havin' her fun
That's a hard pill to swallow, yes, it filled my heart with pain
Don't you hear me, people, I ain't no lyin' man

Well, when I was in prison, servin' my time, when I came back home, I heard a baby cryin'
That was a hard pill to swallow, it filled my heart with pain
Yeah, don't you hear me, people, I ain't no lyin' man
