Rosanne Cash – Understand Your Man lyrics

(John are. Cash)

Don't call my name out your window when I'm leaving
I won't even turn my head
Don't send your kinfolk to give me no talking
I'll be gone like I said
Now you've been saying the same old things
That you've been saying all along
Just lay there in your bed
Keep your mouth shut until I'm gone
Don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' morning
Understand your man, understand your man

You can give my other suit to the Salvation Army
And anything else I leave behind
I ain't takin' nothin' thay'll slow down my travellin'
While I'm untangling my mind
Now I ain't gonna repat what I said anymore
While I'm breathing air that ain't been breathe before
I'll be gone as a wild goose in winter
Then you'll understand your man
What you told me, understand your man
