Dirty Laundry

Album: Storyteller (2015)
Charted: 48
  • That lipstick on your collar, well, it ain't my shade of pink
    And I can tell by the smell of that perfume, it's like forty dollars too cheap
    And there's a little wine stain on the pocket of your white cotton thread
    Well, you drink beer and whiskey, boy, and you know I don't drink red

    Found it over in the corner
    Wadded up on the bedroom floor
    You shoulda hid it in the closet
    You shoulda burned it, you shoulda lost it

    Now I'ma have to hang you out to dry, dry, dry
    Clothespin all your secrets to the line, line, line
    Leave 'em blowing in the wind, just say goodbye to you
    All those midnights sneaking in
    I'm late again, oh, I'm so sorry
    All the Ajax in the world ain't gonna clean your dirty laundry

    If the neighbors get to asking, I won't cover nothin' up
    I'll tell 'em every little detail, how you drug me through the mud
    I'm gonna string up your old button-down and slide it on the porch
    Just in case you get the nerve to come knockin' on my door

    Yeah, I'ma have to hang you out to dry, dry, dry
    Clothespin all your secrets to the line, line, line
    Leave 'em blowing in the wind, just say goodbye to you
    All those midnights sneaking in
    I'm late again, oh, I'm so sorry
    All the Ajax in the world ain't gonna clean your dirty laundry

    Oh oh oh oh-oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh
    Found it over in the corner
    Wadded up on the bedroom floor
    You shoulda hid it in the closet
    You shoulda burned it, you shoulda lost it

    Now I'ma have to hang you out to dry, dry, dry
    Clothespin all your secrets to the line, line, line
    Leave 'em blowing in the wind, just say goodbye to you
    All those midnights sneaking in
    I'm late again, oh, I'm so sorry
    All the Ajax in the world ain't gonna clean your dirty laundry
    Out to dry
