Tonight my heart is beatin' low and my head is bowed
You've been seen with my best friend on the other side of town
And I don't mind this waitin', don't mind this runnin' 'round
But if you're gonna cheat on me, don't cheat in our hometown

How can I stand up to my friends and look 'em in the eye?
Admit the questions that I know would be nothin' but lies
You spend all your pass time makin' me a clown
But if you're gonna cheat on me, don't cheat in our hometown

Now, there are no secrets in this little country town
Everyone knows everyone for miles and miles around
Your bright eyes and your sweet smile are drivin' me insane
You think it's smart to break my heart and run down my name

How can I stand up to my friends and look 'em in the eye?
Admit the questions that I know would be nothin' but lies
You spend all your pass time makin' me a clown
But if you're gonna cheat on me, don't cheat in our hometown
So if you're gonna cheat on me, don't cheat in our hometown
