    It looks everywhere I go always get myself in trouble
    Cause the girls I pick on ain't the saintest kind
    And I wind up running barefoot to hell and think of clover
    Cause the neck I value most of all is mine

    That's why I left the blue shirt hanging on the bed post in Seattle
    My Levi's float on San Francisco Bay
    And I left the Stetson hanging in the hallway down in Dallas
    And a dozen pair of boots along the way

    Now Betty was a sweet thing I was courting in Seattle
    She swore to me she was nobody's wife
    But how was I to know she had a boyfriend big as Dallas
    And I bid that one good shirt for one good life

    That's why I left the blue shirt hanging...
    [ fiddle ]
    Now Susie had a big yacht we anchored in the harbor
    She said she was alone at least today
    When he climbed aboard I swam for shore praying I could get there
    Lost the Levi's while I made my get-a-way

    That's why I left the blue shirt hanging...
    That's why I left the blue shirt hanging...
