I came in as the sun came up.
She glared at me over her coffee cup.
She said: "Where you been?" so I thought real hard,
And said: "I fell asleep in that hammock in the yard."
She said: "You don't know it boy but you just blew it."
An' I said: "Well that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."

"That's my story.
"Oh, that's my story.
"Well, I ain't got a witness and I can't prove it.
"But that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."

I got that deer in the headlight look.
She read my face like the cover of a book.
And said: "Don't expect me to believe all that static,
"'cause just last week, I threw that hammock in the attic."
My skin got so thin you could see right through it.
And I stuttered: "Well that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."

"That's my story." (That's my story.)
"Oh, that's my story." (That's my story.)
"Yeah, I ain't got a witness and I can't prove it,
"But that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."

You know the time comes when a wise man knows 
The best thing that he can do is just look her in the eye 
And beg for mercy and face the bitter truth.

"Well honey, me and the boys played cards all night,
"There wasn't no hanky panky, not a woman in sight.
"And I know I shoulda called and, baby, I'm real sorry.
"Let's get a cellular phone and then you won't have to worry.
"You know how much I love you and darlin' I'm ready to prove it.
"And that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

"That's my story." (That's my story.)
"Oh, that's my story." (That's my story.)
"Yeah, I ain't got a witness and I can't prove it,
"But that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."

"You know I ain't gonna do a thing, 
"Darlin', unless you approve it.
"Well that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."
