The Man of the House

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Coal Miner's Daughter (1971).

When the man of the house ain't never home
Here I am again tonight all by myself
It's not hard to figure out
That you're out with someone else.

So this girl's gettin' ready, gettin' sad to go wrong
'Cause the man of the house ain't never home
When the man of the house ain't never home
That's enough to cause most women to go wrong.

When you stagger in tonight
And find me gone
It's 'cause the man of the house
Ain't never home.

You didn't think
That I would ever slip and fall
Well, that's what you get, forsaken
And don't forget you caused it all.

And it gets pretty lonesome
When you'll have to sleep alone
When the man of the house
Ain't never home.

When the man of the house ain't never home
Here I am again tonight all by myself
It's not hard to figure out
That you're out with someone else.

So this girl's gettin' ready, gettin' sad to go wrong
'Cause the man of the house ain't never home
When the man of the house ain't never home
That's enough to cause most women to go wrong.

When you stagger in tonight
And find me gone
It's 'cause the man of the house
Ain't never home.

No, the man of the house ain't never home...
