Well, you think that you can lie, tell me alibis
And it's alright
Keep the grapevine line working overtime
On your late nights

You think that you can say some words and take away the hurt
And I'll still be your number one
But when it ain't working out we got a saying down South
'Baby that dog won't hunt'

Baby that dog won't hunt
You can hang up your guns
Break my heart, want a new start
Baby that dog won't hunt

Well, it's been open season on your double dealing
And it's so wrong
I guess that I've been a fool playing by the rules
For too long

Well, I've been sitting here at home with the porch light on
You've been chasing everything that runs
Well, let me put this in your ear, make it be so clear
Baby that dog won't hunt

Baby that dog won't hunt
You can hang up your guns
Break my heart, and then you want a new start
Baby that dog won't hunt

Baby that dog won't hunt
So you can hang up your guns
Break my heart, then you want a new start
Baby that dog won't hunt
