Joe Diffie – I Can Walk The Line (If It Ain't Too Straight) lyrics

You knew when you first met me
I was a good time kind of guy
You wanted me to change my ways
I told you that I'd try

Well I've gone from wild and crazy
To takin' out the trash
Girl it's time to comprimise
And give me a weekend pass

Well I can walk the line if it ain't too straight
I'll come home but it might be late
I ain't no devil but lord I ain't no saint
Let out the rope, girl give me some slack
This ol' dog will always come back
You gotta bend the rules and give me a break
Well I can walk the line if ain't too straight

Well I'll love you forever
If I can have a few days off
I'll buy you anything you want
If I can bear the cost

If I ain't gottta punch no clock, girl,
You can be the boss
I'll be your mister perfect
If you can overlook my flaws


Yeah let out the rope girl,
Give me some slack this ol' dog will always come back
Yeah I can walk the line if it ain't too straight.
