They were drinkin his wine
They were usin his name
They were takin the time to take
His name in vain

Look what the good people done to him
Look what the good people done to him
They were havin their fun
Look what the good people done

Well, the good people say things that they
Don't really mean
They look so convincing cause theyre
So squeaky clean

Look what the good people done to him
Look what the good people done to him
Its a million to one
Look what the good people done

They (? Put him on walkin down?), they said,
Lets go on with the show
And they pad him on whiskey and say, boy,
Youve got to go

Look what the good people done to him
Look what the good people done to him
Hes (? On the highway?) to none
Look what the good people done

All the newspaper men
They were lookin for names
Pulled him out of a hat
They needed someone to blame

Look what the good people done to him
Look what the good people done to him
He thought he was the one
Look what the good people done

Well, the good people say,
Keep your nose to the ground
Then theyll build you right up
Just to knock you right down

Look what the good people done to you
Look what the good people done to you
They were gettin their kicks
Look what the good people nixed

[spoken - here we go]

Look what the good people done to me
Look what the good people done to me
Look what the good people done to me
Look what the good people done to me
They were havin no fun
Look what the good people done
