Understand Your Man Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

Don't call my name out your window, I'm leavin'
I won't even turn my head
Don't sent your kinfolks to give me no talkin'
I'll be gone, like I said

You'd just say the same old things that you be sayin' all along
Just lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut
'Til I'm gone
Don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' moan

Understand your man
I'm tired of you bad mouthin'
Understand your man

You can give my other suit to the salvation army
And everything else, I leave behind
I ain't takin' nothin' that'll slow down my travelin'
While I'm untangelin' my mind

I ain't gonna repeat, what I said anymore
While I'm breathin' air that ain't been breath before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
Then you'll understand your man

Meditate on it
Understand your man
You hear me talkin'?

Understand your man
You remember what I told you?
Understand your man
