I'm generous to a fault
But it ain't no fault of mine
Never gave a good goddamn
'Bout this, these, thou, or thine
All I've got I gave away
Never gave it any mind
Yes I'm generous to a fault
But it ain't no fault of mine

My mama didn't raise no fool
That's how it seems to me
Taught me love and taught me hope
Told me that's how I should be
But on the day my mama died
Something died inside of me
No mama didn't raise no fool
But I didn't get shit for free

So I left my dreams out in the alley
For someone else to come pick up
Watched them drive off at midnight
In a stolen pickup truck

I put my heart out on my doorstep
Just for anyone to steal
When I woke up in the morning
I didn't know how I should feel

My spirit went for nothin'
Let it sail off in the breeze
'Cause when you wake up on that day
You can let it go with ease

Yeah I'm generous to a fault
But it ain't no fault of mine
No I never gave a good goddamn
'Bout those, these, thou, or thine
Yes all I got I gave away
I never gave it any mind
Yeah I'm generous to a fault
But it ain't no fault of mine
