Hank Locklin — Why Baby Why lyrics

Tell me why baby why baby why baby why
You make me cry baby cry baby cry baby cry
Well I got a crow I wanna pick with you just like last time when the feathers flew
You're running wild a kickin' up your heels a leavin' me home with a handful of bills
I can't live without you and you know it's true
But there's no livin' with you so what'll I do
I'm goin' honky tonkin' get as tight as I can
And maybe by then you'll preciate a good man
Tell me why baby why baby why baby why
You make me cry baby cry baby cry baby cry
I can't help but love you till the day that I die
But tell me why baby why baby why baby why
[ steel ]
Well I don't know but I've heard you say
That ev'ry little dog is gonna have his day
You better pay attention don't you dare forget
Cause I'm just a little bitty puppy yet
I caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
Oh why you should've done he put you away back then
Now I'm too old to leave you but I still get sore
When you come home a feelin' for the knob on the door
Tell me why baby why...
