Conway Twitty — You Were Named Co-Respondent lyrics

You were named co-respondent in a devorce suit today
That's the legal way of saying y'all went all the way, hey
And I've been sittin' here a-prayin that's it's been some bad mistake
You were named co-respondent in a devorce suit today.

Oh, the sheriff came by today with a sa-peen-o in his hand
He said he was looking for you, I said I was your man
No, he didn't pull his pistol but he sure 'nuff shot me down
He said: son, she's in a devorce suit
She's the means and she's the grounds!

You were named co-respondent in a devorce suit today
That's the legal way of saying y'all went all the way, hey
And I've been sittin' here a-prayin that it's been some bad mistake
You were named co-respondent in a devorce suit today.

Oh baby, sit right down beside me
Take your time and please explain
How that lawyer knew about you
How that paper's got your name?
Lord, I'm tryin' to believe you so tell me where I'm at
If it ain't true why should someone claim a thing like that?

You were named co-respondent in a deevorce suit today
That's the legal way of saying y'all went all th way, hey
And I've been sittin' here a-prayin that it's just some bad mistake
You were named co-respondent in a devorce suit today...
