Tell me why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?
Why you make me cry, baby, cry, baby, cry, baby, cry?
Can't help but love you 'til the day I die
Tell me why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?

Well, I got a crow I wanna pick with you
Just like last time when the feathers flew
You got there honky tonkin', kickin' up your heels
Leavin' me home with a hand full of bills

Can't live without you and you know it's true
There's no livin' with you so what'll I do
I'm goin' honky tonkin', get as drunk as I can
Maybe by then you'll 'preciate a good man, that's my friend

Tell me why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?
Why you make me cry, baby, cry, baby, cry, baby, cry?
Can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
Tell me why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why? Tell me why

Well, I caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
The thing to do was leave you and I should'a left then
I love you so much you but I still get sore
When you come home feelin' for the knob on the door

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

Tell me why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?
Why you make me cry, baby, cry, baby, cry, baby, cry?
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
Tell me why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why? Tell me
