Won't you tell me if you can what's the matter with a man
When he starts stayin' out all night
Should he hit him in the head with a pen or cornbread
A tellin' honey baby that's alright
Cause ever since I was a little bitty teeny girl
He thought he was the only man in this whole world
But now he bettter do some thinkin' then he'll find
He's got the only mama that'll walk the line
[ guitar ]
I'm workin' every day all he wants do is play I'm tired of him leavin' me alone
I'm comin' unglued from his funny little moods
When he finally thinks I drag him back home
Cause ever since I was...
[ guitar ]
I keep a packin' up my clothes but everybody knows
That I'm really just a puttin' you on
When I start a walkin' gonna that's when you start a squawkin'
And a beggin' me to come back home
Cause ever since I was...
