  • I blame this new tattoo on a hundred proof bottle of whiskey
    And the scar on my cheek to an '84 Jeep and an oak tree
    Blame the cussin' on my Daddy, good looks on my Mama
    But as for my honky-tonk ways

    I blame it on Waylon
    And all them other outlaws
    Blame it on the back beat
    Blame it on them sad songs

    If I got a, don't care attitude and long hair
    And mean every damn word I'm singin'
    I blame it on Waylon

    I blame my ramblin' ways on that old freight train I was born on
    And the holes in the soles of these boots on every girl I told so long
    Blame my good luck on the good Lord
    And bad luck on the devil, but this lonesome in my soul

    You know I blame it on Waylon
    And all them other outlaws
    Blame it on the back beat
    Blame it on them sad songs

    If I got a, don't care attitude and long hair
    And mean every damn word I'm singin'
    I blame it on Waylon

    From this old guitar I'm playin'
    To these smoky bar dues I'm payin'

    You know I blame it on Waylon
    And all them other outlaws
    Blame it on the back beat
    Blame it on them sad songs

    If I got a, don't care attitude and long hair
    And mean every damn word I'm singin'
    I blame it on Waylon

    And all them other outlaws
    Blame it on the back beat
    Blame it on them sad songs

    If I got a, don't care attitude and long hair
    And mean every damn word I'm singin'
    I blame it on Waylon, blame it on Waylon Writer/s: JOSH THOMPSON, RHETT AKINS, RHETT ATKINS
