When I think about cheating.-- Gretchen Wilson (#musicmonday)

I told ya'll long ago that I like most music genres, including country. (Yes, I have two-stepped in a honkeytonk. And I went to visit Loretta Lynn's ranch. If you want to hear some really entertaining lyrics, listen to this Loretta hit).

But this post is about a Gretchen Wilson ballad from a couple of years ago. I love the lyrics to this song.

I've never done anything
That would ever bring a tear to your eye
I've never crossed the line
Or needed an alibi to cover up a lie
But darling I'll admit
There've been times when I could have
The thing that kept me strong
Is the one thing that is always on my mind

When I think about cheatin'
I just think about you leavin'
And how my world would fall to pieces
If I tossed your love away
Even when I'm tempted by some stranger
Oh there's never any danger
I just think about you leavin'
When I think about cheatin'

There was a time in Abilene
When he said all the things I wanted to hear
It was hard to turn him down
Between the champagne and the sound of whispers in my ear
But it just took one two-step with someone, and I was missing you
He never had a chance, cause I broke up the dance
Before the song was through

When I think about cheatin'
I just think about you leavin'
And how my world would fall to pieces
If I tossed your love away
Even when I'm tempted by some stranger
Oh there's never any danger
I just think about you leavin'
When I think about cheatin'

Here's the video, filmed at the old Grand Old Opry (yep, been there, too. I've seen the new building but never been inside). Check it out.

  1. Country music is cool. It's not my usual thing, but I've played in two country bands in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it!
