Guilty As Can Be (Cody Johnson)

Once I had me a woman Everything was goin' my way She thought I had hung the moon And she had an angels face Till' one night I pulled in my drive and somethin' was goin' on There was a long bed Ford in my spot That I damn sure didn't know So I walked up to the screen door and I heard this awful noise I moved on to the living room and there sat my two boys I said "Where's mama?" And they both pointed to the bedroom down the hall Now, I ain't ever been a fightin' man But red was all I saw See brother 'cause I've been down and I've been out And I know how it feels To stand up for what you think is right Then get knocked off your heels And if murder in a man who didn't understand Just what she meant to me Means all right here in itself for eternity Well then mister I'm as guilty as can be Well I wish I had me a picture of what his face looked like When I kicked in my bedroom door and raised my 45 See I ain't the kind to hurt a woman and I hope you understand But someone's got to die today Son it looks like your the man See brother 'cause I've been down and I've been out And I know how it feels To stand up for what you think is right Then get knocked off your heels And if murder in a man who didn't understand Just what she meant to me Means all right here in itself for eternity Well then mister I'm as guilty as can be That's what I told that jury That's what I told that judge And I knew there'd be hell to pay if I fulfilled my grudge See I don't mind these prison bars tucked off in these pine trees One thing about that cheatin' woman She won't cheat again on me See brother 'cause I've been down and I've been out And I know how it feels To stand up for what you think is right Then get knocked off your heels And if murder in a man who didn't understand Just what she meant to me Means all right here in itself for eternity Well then mister I'm as guilty as can be I said if murder in a man who didn't understand Just what she meant to me Means all right here in itself for eternity Well than mister I'm as guilty as can be Go ahead and lock me up boys I'm guilty anyways
