The Lyrics

Original written by Luke McDaniel, sung by Hank Locklin
You Can't Never Tell

Well, I thought I'd get rich so I bought a Cadillac
But the finance company came and took it right back
Oh, you can't never tell, no you can't never tell
If you'll make good your claim to fortune and fame
You can't never tell

One day you might be doing just fine
The next you might be doing some time
Oh, you can't never tell, no you can't never tell
If the law will help you or help them to sue you
You can't never tell

Now I had me a girl who made me her king
Then she took back her crown but she kept my ring
Oh, you can't never tell, no you can't never tell
If your lover is true or two-timing you
You can't never tell

It's a funny old life, might be right as rain
Then suddenly it's filled with nothing but pain
Oh, you can't never tell, no you can't never tell
When you'll take your last bow so live it up now
'Cuz you can't never tell

Life is not a journey to a mouldering grave
That you have to get to looking good while being well behaved
Let your trip be noisy, sliding into home base
With a Chardonnay in both hands and chocolate on your face
You can't never tell when your time is done
But your last shout can be, "What a ride!" heard by everyone
