Now, he's a hard workin' easy goin' country boy
He wouldn't harm a fly
Nadine down at the hair salon
Promised she would be his bride

He took it hard when she ran off
With the beauty supply salesman
Well, that's how romance goes sometimes
But Herschel don't understand

He'll play the same sad song on the old jukebox
Drink up every dime he's got
He'll peel out in his pickup truck
Sling gravel through the parking lot

You wouldn't wanna tangle with a grizzly bear
Or step on a copperhead snake
So if you cross his path you better beware
Been wounded by a woman, he's a hillbilly with a heartache

He was gonna buy her a modular home
With no wax linoleum floors
Now his mama's all worried
'Cause he don't drop by to see wrestling anymore

He just rides around with a loaded shotgun
Hanging in his rifle rack
If I was that smooth talkin' city boy
I'd sure be watching my back

He'll play the same sad song on the old jukebox
Drink up every dime he's got
He'll peel out in his pickup truck
And sling gravel through the parking lot

You wouldn't wanna tangle with a grizzly bear
Or step on a copperhead snake
If you cross his path you better beware
He's been wounded by a woman, he's a hillbilly with a heartache

Now, them big old arms that used to hold her tight
Could bring about any man down
When a good ol' boy's been hurt real bad
He just don't give a damn

He'll play the same sad song on the old jukebox
Drink up every dime he's got
He'll peel out in his pickup truck
Sling gravel through the parking lot

You wouldn't wanna tangle with a grizzly bear
Or step on a copperhead snake
If you cross his path you better beware
He's been wounded by a woman, he's a hillbilly with a heartache
Been wounded by a woman, he's a hillbilly with a heartache
