Hank Williams Jr. – That's How I Wanted It To Be lyrics

I thought I'd like to leave
The black side of life for a while
To live alone and have some fun

So I told her to take the kids and go back to her ma
That's how I wanted it to be
And I felt satisfied it was over and done

I wake up every morning make myself a cup of jay
Down to the factory that's where I spend my pay
Five o'clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
That's how I wanted it to be

Well, it didn't take me long to find out just how much I missed her
So I wrote and told her to take the kids and come on back home
'Cause I was ready to settle down now

Well, you see I just got her letter today
And it seems she's found someone she can depend on
That's how I wanted it to be, she ain't coming home no more

I wake up every morning make myself a cup of jay
Down to the factory that's where I spend my pay
Five o'clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
That's how I wanted it to be
