​You Know How Talk Gets Around

This song is by Eddy Arnold and appears on the album Country Songs I Love To Sing (1963) and on the album Tennessee Plowboy & His Guitar (1998).

I'm hearing funny stories and they're far from being true
But you know how talk gets around
Those busy tongues are wagging saying I walked out on you
But you know how talk gets around

I must admit our romance wasn't all that it should be
We tried to claim a love we'd never found
They say you're living reckless and they blame it on me
But you know how talk gets around
I hear you're glad we parted that you say and you don't care
Now you know how talk gets around
They're telling everybody that I didn't treat you fair
And you know how talk gets around

I wish I wasn't quite so proud when I'm around with friends
Then I wouldn't feel so honor bound
I'd give the world to tell them how I'd love to make commands
But you know how talk gets around
