Hurt a Lot Worse When You Go

Album: That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy (2008)
  • Toby Keith explained this song on the press release for That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy: "It's like the old George Jones song: Someday when things are good, I'm gonna leave you. It's that idea of I can't ever seem to leave you, I always let you come back. So why don't you tell me you really love me this time, then when you do leave it'll hurt a lot worse and I won't invite you back. He's trying to get himself in the right mentality to never let her back in again. It's a bad deal."
