… Is the best song ever written. It makes a start, goes somewhere you can follow, and has a wind-up. Hank Williams tells a story every man jack of us can relate to. This song and a few beers will see you through hard times. Your modern tunes don’t hold a candle to it. I wish they’d make music great again.
Hank teaches us in this song how a woman can hurt a man, make him play the fool, break his spirit and his heart with one kick. In theory a man can cheat, too. But men don’t cry, and there’s cryin’ all the way through this song. Besides, it ain’t “heart” that makes a man what he is, is it?
Let’s face facts. Women are what’s called mononuclear by nature. They’re meant to stand by their man, so it hurts more when they cheat. On the other side of the coin, a redblooded man is built to follow his instink, to get his hoggin’s — you know what I mean. Boys will be boys. When there’s a bull in the pasture, the heifers come a-callin’!
You want real poetry? Listen to it:
Your cheatin’ heart will pine someday
And crave the love you threw away…
Brett K. and the Boys
Brevity is the soul of it
