Guilty As Can Be lyrics

Once I had me a woman
Everything was goin' my way
She thought I had hung the moon

And she had an angels face
Till' one night I pulled in my drive

and somethin' was goin' on
There was a long bed Ford in my spot
That I damn sure didn't know

So I walked up to the screen door
and I heard this awful noise
I moved on to the living room and there sat my two boys
I said "Where's mama?"
And they both pointed to the bedroom down the hall
Now, I ain't ever been a fightin' man
But red was all I saw

(Chorus)
See brother 'cause I've been down and I've been out
And I know how it feels
To stand up for what you think is right
Then get knocked off your heels
And if murder in a man who didn't understand
Just what she meant to me
Means all right here in itself for eternity
Well then mister I'm as guilty as can be

(Chorus)
Well I wish I had me a picture of what his face looked like
When I kicked in my bedroom door and raised my 45
See I ain't the kind to hurt a woman and I hope you understand
But someone's got to die today
Son it looks like your the man

(Chorus)
See brother 'cause I've been down and I've been out
And I know how it feels
To stand up for what you think is right
Then get knocked off your heels
And if murder in a man who didn't understand
Just what she meant to me
Means all right here in itself for eternity
Well then mister I'm as guilty as can be

That's what I told that jury
That's what I told that judge
And I knew there'd be hell to pay if I fulfilled my grudge
See I don't mind these prison bars tucked off in these pine trees
One thing about that cheatin' woman
She won't cheat again on me

(Chorus)
See brother 'cause I've been down and I've been out
And I know how it feels
To stand up for what you think is right
Then get knocked off your heels
And if murder in a man who didn't understand
Just what she meant to me
Means all right here in itself for eternity
Well then mister I'm as guilty as can be

I said if murder in a man who didn't understand
Just what she meant to me
Means all right here in itself for eternity
Well than mister I'm as guilty as can be

Go ahead and lock me up boys
I'm guilty anyways
