Well on a Friday night you draw your pay and you take in the town
You leave me at home just to lose my mind for you are messin' around
But it's four in the morning and you stagger in and you sure look a mess
With a smile on your face and out stretched arms and a bargain basement dress
I wouldn't wear that dress to a dogfight if your side was free
And the bargain basemant dress ain't enough to get your arms around me
Well you say when a man was hard all week he deserves to play all rest
But honey that ain't right to get out of my side with that bargain basement dress
[ dobro - steel ]
I wouldn't wear that dress to a dogfight if your side was free
And the bargain basemant dress ain't enough to get your arms around me
Now I took all I'm a gonna take and I'm a leavin' you the rest
Tell you what I'll do I'll just leave you that bargain basement dress
Tell you what I'll do I'll just leave you that old bargain basement dress
