Get Stuff

them is the pants

i can tell that things are going bad
i don't know where i went wrong
but i'm beginning to start thinkin
that you won't be mine for long
last night i bailed out billy bob
came home to find you gone
i asked the kids bout were you was
i even looked out in the barn
my overalls they're dirty and the kids
their clothes are black
but each night you go out with that tide
i'm not sure you're coming back
you think i don't know what's going on
you never used to be so clean
but you've been doint laundry every night
to wash out them same black jeans

chorus:
and i know thems the pants that you wear
when you cheat on me
them is the pants that you wear
when you cheat on me
you been wearing them so much now well
you know they're fraying at the seems oh
honey them is the pants that you wear
when you cheat on me

i hear that lonesome whistle blow and i
know that you ain't home
i checked the bowling alley and the bar
and i'm feeling so alone
my buddies, they've been laughing
and momma didn't raise no fool
since you got your ged well i know
you ain't in school
i tried not to be suspicious when
my quarters disappeared
i figured you were at the laundromat
since they started serving beers
but then i saw you in that pickup truck
doing stuff that was obscene
and hanging from the rearview mirror
were them god damned old black jeans
