Jean Shepard – The Root Of All Evil (Is A Man) lyrics

You've heard that old story ever since time began that money is root of all evil
Well let me tell you mine it's much older than time for the root of all evil is a man
They'll tell you that they love you and will until they die
But you'll find them out with someone else before a tear come alive and it's dry
So girls take my advice think it over once or twice for the root of all evil is a man
[ steel ]
Sure there's honky tonk girls but before you condemn
And look at her with storm in your eyes
Hive her just a friendly smile hear her troubles for a while
For the cause of her trouble was a man
They'll tell you that they love you...
