Oh, show me a home with a back breakin' lawn
And a wife that nudge night and day
And I'll show you a man with a drink in his hand
Who stands over the jukebox and plays

Country music, those tear jerking songs
About life the way it really is
He's not happy at home so he'll play them old songs
And dance with someone that's not his

When the man of the house has trouble with his spouse
And she locks him out of the bedroom
He'll just stroll down the street and some darlings he'll meet
To have a drink and play them old tune

Country music, those tear jerking songs
About life the way it really is
He's not happy at home so he'll play them old songs
And dance with someone that's not his

So take my advice and go out tonight
To your favorite honky tonk bar
Play some Haggard and Tubb or Jones
Or Acuff or your's truly H W J R
Or anyone else just as long as it's

Country music those tear jerking songs
About life the way it really is
Have a good time tonight and hope
That your wife don't ever find out what you did
