Woman, you dont know me, but you can bet that I know you
Everybody in this whole darn town knows you too
I brought along our little babies cause I wanted them to see
The woman thats burnin down our family tree

No, I didnt come to fight, he was a better man I might
But I wouldnt dirty my hands on trash like you, no
Bring out the babies daddy, thats who theyve come to see
Not the woman thats burnin down our family tree

Their daddy once was a good man, until he ran into trash like you
Take a look, babys face and tell me who loves who
I brought along his old dog Charlie and the bills thats overdue
The job youre workin, Lord, we need money, too

No, I didnt come to fight, he was a better man I might
But I wouldnt dirty my hands on trash like you, no
Bring out the babies daddy, thats who theyve come to see
Not the woman thats burnin down our family tree
No, not the woman thats burnin down our family tree
