I Don't Give a Damn

My purse is empty, my heart is full
So much to live for, a constant pull

I’d rather listen to a soulful song
Than try to figure where I belong

Don’t worry yourself about my life
I get along fine with little strife

To pick myself up and start again
Is the only way that I’ll stay sane

Hear the music in the guitar strum
It sounds so sweet it makes me hum

I will always know who I am
So my dear, I don’t give a damn
