Confidence Man Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well, I lost you at the border,
When you crossed it
Had your number, baby,
But I lost it
I know your love,
Was just a flimflam
Verse 2
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
Cause I'm a confidence man
Verse 3
I can talk old ladies,
Out of all of their money
I can talk young girls,
Into calling me honey
You can talk all you want, baby,
But I got fast hands
Verse 4
I know your mother
Taught you how to bake a pie,
And read a book
Your daddy
Taught you how to tell a lie,
And not get shook
Verse 5
Let me tell you somethin', baby
You better learn,
If you're gonna con the con man,
You're liable to get burned
Verse 6
Now, now, now,
We were stretched out on the floor, baby,
It's all elastic
But you stretched it too tight,
And it snapped like plastic,
And the pieces went flying across the badlands.
Verse 7
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man.
Verse 8
Now, maybe Chicago,
Is where you're bound
But love is a cheap perfume,
It hangs around
And you roll the dice,
Now let the bet stand
Verse 9
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man.
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man.
