​Who Was That Man That Beat Me So

This song is by Johnny Paycheck and appears on the album Everybody's Got A Family (1979).

Thanks to you my nose is bent real bad
My front teeth all but gone
You always told me you'd get me back
For being so rotten so long
But I never thought I'd see the day
That you would stoop so low
Woman who was that man that beat me so

When his mauling hands came at me
I was sure that King Kong still lived
Still I thought old rugged me could take it
But he had so much to give
I've heard that hell has no fury
Like a woman scorned
Now I know
But tell me who was that man that beat me so

I'm always drunk
I've cheated on you
I've lied with every breath
But I still think you should be ashamed
He beat me half to death

But you shed no tears when he stretched my ears
How I lived I still don't know
But tell me who was that man who beat me so
Darling who was that man that beat me so
