Artist: Ernest Tubb and Loretta Lynn
I snuck out of the house about sundown
while Mama was a washing her hair.
You can bet your bottom dollar she'll come looking for me
when she finds out I'm not there.
When she catches her sweet thang running around
you know It'll be the devil to pay.
She'll come rolling like a cyclone right through that door
and here's exactly what she'll say...
Well… has anybody here seen my sweet thang
I had a notion he'd be headed this way.
When my sweet thang's out tom catting around
He finds a sandbox like this to play.
I want to tell all you barroom roses (2nd verse: barroom fluzzies)
if my sweet thang does happen by.
You'd better take my advise and if you blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eye.
I gave my baby all my money on payday
'cept what little she don't know that I got.
There's a cute little waitress at the corner cafe
she seems to like me quite a lot.
We were settin in the back booth havin a talk
she was believing every word that I said.
When the door flew open and Loretta walked in
yellin loud enough to wake the dead.
