Lyrics

Damn Strait

Written By: Clint Wiles

Hop in the truck...pick my baby up...get my courage up.

Gonna paint the town...just might burn it down...gonna spin her around.

Turn on some tunes...hear him as he croons...about hanging the moon.

But, whats this I see...my baby's turned from me to...and to an old memory.

Seems as if the King of Country's made my Baby Blue
I hope that i can bring her back before the night is through.

Damn Strait...
Why'd you have to play that song again...
The one that took my baby way back when.
Damn Strait...
Why'd you have to spark that memory...
The one that did not include me again.
If you're thinking that I'm fed up with this date...
Damn Strait.

Gonna be "The Fireman"...So I grab her hand...go see a cover band.

But wouldn't you know...they played "Check Yes or No" then, "She Let Herself Go".

It seems the King of Country's "Lit a Fire I can't put out".
I can't make up my mind if I should "Stay" or just walk out.

Damn Strait...
Why'd you have to play that song again
The one that took my baby way back when.
Damn Strait...
Why'd you have to spark that memory
The one that did not include me again.
And if you're thinking that I'm fed up with this date...
Damn Strait.

Walk her to her door...Hard to ignore..."I'm not her cowboy anymore."

Now I understand...when I heard the man...talk about "Cheyenne."

It seems the King of Country's helped me lose the game I played.
Now, I know the meaning of the "Cowboy Rides Away."

Damn Strait
Why'd you have to play that song again
The one that took my baby way back when.
Damn Strait
Why'd you have to spark that memory
The one that did not include me again.
And if your thinking that I'm fed up with this date.
Damn Strait.
