    Lyrics

    Loretta Lynn and Buck Owens

    (Buck)
    I slipped out of the house about sundown
    While mama was a washin' her hair
    And you can bet your bottom dollar she'll come lookin' for me
    When she finds that I'm not there.

    And if she catches her sweet thang runnin' around
    I know there'll be the devil to pay
    She'll come blowin' like a cyclone right through that door
    And I can hear exactly what she'll say.

    (Loretta)
    Well, has anybody here seen sweet thang
    I got a notion he'll be headed this a way
    'Cause when my sweet thang is out tomocattin' around
    He finds a sandbox like this to play.

    I wanna tell all you barroom roses
    If my sweet thang does have a bite
    You'd better take my advice and if you'll blink more than twice
    You'd better have somethin' in your eyes.

    (Buck)
    I gave my baby all my money on payday
    Except a little she don't know that I got
    'Cause there's a cute little waitress at the corner cafe
    And she seems to like me quite a lot.

    While we were sittin' in the back booth a havin' a talk
    She believed in every word that I said
    When the door blew open, Loretta walked in
    Yellin' loud enough to wake the dead.

    (Loretta)
    Well, has anybody here see sweet thang
    I got a notion he'll be headed this a way
    'Cause when my sweet thang is out tomocattin' around
    He finds a sandbox like this to play.

    I wanna tell all you barroom roses
    If my sweet thang does happen by
    You'd better take my advice and if you blink more than twice
    You'd better have somethin' in your eye...
