Hillbilly with a Heartache
by Tracy Lawrence



He's a hard workin' easy goin' country boy
He wouldn't harm a fly
Nadine down at the hair salon
Promised she would be his bride
He took it real hard when she ran off
With the beauty supply salesman
But that's how romance goes sometimes
But Herschel don't understand

[Chorus:]
He'll play that same sad song on the old jukebox
Drink up every dime he's got
He'll peel out in his pickup truck
Sling gravel through the parkin' lot
You wouldn't wanna tangle with a grizzly bar
Or step on a copperhead snake
So if you cross his path you better beware
Been wounded by a woman
He's a hillbilly with a heartache

He was gonna buy her a modular home
With no wax linoleum floors
Now his mama's all worried 'cause he don't drop by
To watch wrestling anymore
He just rides around with a loaded shotgun
Hangin' in his rifle rack
If I was that smooth talkin' city boy
I'd sure be watchin' my back

[Chorus]

Them big ole arms that used to hold her tight
Could break about any man down
When a good ol' boy's been hurt real bad
He just don't give a damn

[Chorus]

Been wounded by a woman
He's a hillbilly with a heartache
