Jean Shepard – Why Did You Wait lyrics

Why did you wait to prove to be untrue why did you change what's come over you
What made you stop a carin' for me why did you wait till we had a family
Why did you wait till a baby was born think of the shame look at the harm
Think of what you've done to your baby and me why did you wait till we had a family
[ steel ]
I'd rather be dead than to tell her the news
Your daddy's traded us for bright lights and booze
I can see her little face as she cries in misery
Why don't my daddy stay with my mommy and me
Why did you wait...
