Just like a hound dog when the

You didn't eve

You just up and left  
G7

Since the grocery man stopped by again
 
And

You said he just came  
E7 
back for a  
A7 
little 
 
snack
 
You just  
D7

I didn't mind so much when th
A7 
e cupboards were bare
 
You  
D7 
went hunting  
G7 
on your  
C 
own
 
I even left the  
E7 
key for only  
A7 
me
 
But you  
D7 
forgot your way back  
G7 
home
You say you went down south to see your rich uncle

Trying to

You say the phone was busy every time you called

 
But

Who is Lefty Frizzell?
- William Orville "Lefty" Frizzell (March 31, 1928 - July 19, 1975) was an American country music singer-songwriter and honky-tonk singer.He gained prominence in 1950 after two major hits, and throughout the decade was a very popular country performer.
Frizzell influenced a number of other country singers, including George Jones, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers, Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, and John Fogerty. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1982. After the death of Hank Williams in 1953, Frizzell released many songs that charted in the Top 10 of the Hot Country Songs charts. His success did not carry on into the 1960s, and after suffering from alcoholism, he died at age 47.
A vocalist who set the style of singing "the country way" for the generations that followed, Frizzell became one of the most successful and influential artists of country music throughout his career. He smoothed out the rough edges of a honky tonk song by sounding out syllables longer and singing longer. Because of this, his music became much more mainstream without losing its honky-tonk attitude and persona.
