She took down the photographOf our wedding dayRipped it down the middleAnd threw my half awayAnd I got nobody to blame but meI got nobody to blame but meShe broke all my fishing rodsPut my guns in hockThrew my clothes out in the yardAnd changed out all the locksAnd I got nobody to blame but meI got nobody to blame but meI know right where I went wrongI know just what got her goneTurned my life into this country songAnd I got nobody to blame but meI got nobody to blame but meShe fired up my old hot rodRan it in the pondPut sugar in my John DeereI can't even mow my lawnAnd I got nobody to blame but meI got nobody to blame but me
She built her a bonfireWith my old six stringTook all my good whiskeyAnd poured it down the drainAnd I got nobody to blame but meI got nobody to blame but meI know right where I went wrongI know just what got her goneTurned my life into this country songAnd I got nobody to blame but meI got nobody to blame but me

I have a little shed out behind my house. It’s about 10x10 and on occasion I write songs out there. I got together one afternoon with Barry Bales and Ronnie Bowman. I think we wrote three songs that day. This was one of the three. It’s a song about a man getting what he deserves for not doing the things that he knows he should and doing things he knows he shouldn’t. I’m pretty sure that everybody can relate to that on some level.- via Sacks & Co
