lyrics

Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be hard-headed fools

The first time she left me I warned her
if you say that it's over
then tomorrow don't come back here saying
that this ain't the end
Now the fourth time she knows that I'm bluffing
'cause my cards are showing
Too stubborn to fall out of love
and let my heart mend

Hard-headed fool, fool you must have your reasons
Your hard head it pulls you through
the ringer again
Hard-headed fool, fool you know your hearts bleeding
but it keeps beating true as it fills up the pool
that you're drowning in

the last time I saw her was Monday
and in church this morning
I stumbled up to that old altar
and confessed my sins
as I cried and I prayed with pastor
I looked to the doorway
to see that hard-headed woman
was passing through my life again

The next time she leaves me
maybe I can stick to my story
that the next time she comes back
I won't even crack my front door
But believing in that of course
takes a whole lot of ignoring
that I know just one sight of her eyes
will leave my strength compromised once more.

Matt Hudgins & His Shit-Hot Country Band Athens, Georgia

We're a ten-piece (sometimes) country band from Athens, Georgia who had our first practice in January of 2010 at a club where some of us worked. We're better than we were then, as people and as a band. Think 60s & 70s country. Hell, as late as the nineties they hadn't figured out how to fuck up EVERYTHING coming out of Nashville. We like that stuff, and write all our own songs. Go Braves. ... more
