  • If you need your car towed,
    If that Volkswagen breaks down on the way out of this town
    I know a guy
    I'll make a few calls,
    If you need something part time
    'Til you're back on your feet
    I know a guy

    And if you're looking for someone barely hanging on,
    Lost the only thing that he ever loved
    Wishing you would come over
    Give anything just to hold ya
    If you're trying to find a man who lost his mind,
    Doesn't sleep at night unless he's dreaming about you laying right here beside him
    Praying someday you might feel like forgiving
    And think about giving him one more try
    Then I know a guy

    If you would ask me to think of a person that didn't deserve you
    I know a guy
    And if you needed a man to never really listen
    Not know what he'd be missing
    I know a guy

    If you're looking for someone barely hanging on,
    Lost the only thing that he ever loved
    Wishing you would come over
    Give anything just to hold ya
    If you're trying to find a man who lost his mind,
    Doesn't sleep at night unless he's dreaming about you laying right here beside him
    Praying someday you might feel like forgiving
    And think about giving him one more try
    Then I know a guy

    Yeah I know a guy
    Who feels like a fool,
    He's been hating himself for what he put you through
    He'd take it all back if he only knew how
    He knows that you've probably moved on by now

    But if you're looking for someone barely hanging on,
    Lost the only thing that he ever loved
    Wishing you would come over
    Give anything just to hold ya
    If you're trying to find a man who lost his mind,
    Doesn't sleep at night unless he's dreaming about you laying right here beside him
    Praying someday you might feel like forgiving
    And think about giving him one more try
    Then I know a guy

    One, one more try
