Hank Williams Jr. – Understand Your Man lyrics

Don't call my name out your window I'm leaving and I won't even turn my head

Don't send your kinfolks to give me no talkin' I'll be long gone like I said

You say the same old things that you've been saying all along

Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shot till I'm gone

And don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' moan

Understand your man understand your man

[ guitar - steel ]

You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army and everything else I leave behind

Cause I ain't takin' nothin' that'll slow down my traveling

While I'm untangling my mind

Oh I ain't gonna repeat what I've said anymore

While I'm breathin' this air that ain't been breathed before

I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter you'll understand your man

Think about it honey understand your man hear me talkin' understand your man

Cause I'm leavin' understand your man don't be grievin' understand your man
