(dwight yoakam)

Hey, when c.c. rider was just a snot-nosed kid
I was already known for doin' what I did
The women all screamed as I walked by
My daddy would curse me
And my momma'd start to cry

'cause I was known yeah for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did
It ain't no way they could ever get kissed
'cause I was just too well known for doin' what I did

Hey, my momma called the preacher, called up everyone she knew
All of her friends ....
When old casanova was a just love-sick pup
I'd already broke me so many hearts I could've started me a dump

'cause I was known yeah for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did
It ain't no way they could ever get kissed
'cause I was just too well known for doin' what I did

The older boys was teasin' me on my first day of school
Then finally the teachers let me break all the rules
The press heard about it tried to put me in the news
They didn't have no comment for fear of what they'd lose

'cause I was known yeah for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did
It ain't no way they could ever get kissed
'cause I was just too well known for doin' what I did

Ahh, it was like I was strong, since I was born
Man, I stood alone
Yeah, baby, I was strong
Doin what I did
Doin what I did
Ah, doin what I did

Hey, when old c.c. rider was a snot-nosed kid
I was already know, baby, for doin' what I did
When little casanova was a snot-nosed punk,
I'd already broke so many hearts I could've started me a dump
I was known, for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, yeah for doin' what I did
All the time I was know, yeah for doin' what I did
