Why Baby Why – Charley Pride

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry

Well, I got a crow I wanna pick with you
Just like last time when the feathers flew
You're runnin' wild a-kickin' up your heels
A-leavin' me home with a hand full of bills

I can't live without you and you know it's true
But there's no livin' with you so what'll I do
I'm goin' honky tonkin', getting’ tight as I can
And maybe by then you'll 'preciate a good man

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
You made me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry
I can't live without you till the day that I die

--- Instrumental ---

Girl, now I don't know, but I've heard say
That ever' little dog is a-gonna have his day
You'd better pay attention, don't you dare forget
'Cause I'm just a little bitty puppy yet

I caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
The thing to do was leave you, but I should'a left then
Now I'm too old to leave you, but I still get sore
When you come home a-feelin' for the knob on the door

Well, tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry
I live without you 'til the day that I die
So tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why...
Tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why...
