  • She puts on her work clothes, fishnet pantyhose,
    She's got a nickname everybody knows at the gentlemen's club
    She clocks in at midnight, even though it never feels right,
    Makes her money one dollar at a time.
    Without the makeup, nobody knows her name,
    And she wears the pain

    Black tears, rolling down,
    From the eyes of an angel in a sinner's town
    She reveals, and they all cheer,
    Then she cries, black tears

    Jealous of the innocent, sometimes she's convinced,
    The boss man is still a friend she needs.
    She's tried everything, cheap sex and cocaine,
    Anything to hide the pain for a little while
    The wrong kind of famous in her momma's eyes,
    You can tell she knows it when she cries

    Black tears, rolling down
    From the eyes of an angel in a sinner's town,
    White lights on the mirror,
    Just won't hide, black tears

    She tries and tries so hard to get away
    But everybody's watching

    Black tears, rolling down,
    From the eyes of an angel in a sinner's town,
    If all the pain would just disappear
    She'd quit cryin', yeah she'd quit cryin',
    Black tears Writer/s: CANAAN LEE SMITH, TYLER REED HUBBARD
