    Lyrics

    (Harlan Howard - Buck Owens)

    I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
    I won't be much when you get through with me
    I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale
    And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

    Well, every night you drag me where the bright lights're found
    There ain't no way to slowin' you down
    I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
    And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

    I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
    I won't be much when you get through with me
    I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale
    And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I thought the day I met you you were meek as a lamb
    Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans
    Now the pace we've been living takes the wind from my sails
    And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

    I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
    I won't be much when you get through with me
    I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale
    And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail...
