FIRST YEAR BLUES (Ernest Tubb) Ernest Tubb - 1941 Also recorded by : Hank Williams I’ve just been married about six months Only six months you see First three months was all OK But the last three is killing me My wife began her hissin’ cut down on her kissin’ And then failed to shine my shoes My shirts a came up wrinkled my pants were dirt and sprinkled Then I took the first year blues Then she started nagging Left the sink a sagging With dishes piled up high Food up on the table she said if she was able She’ll cook something bye and bye And I began a wondering If I had made a blunder When I said “I Do” She must of read my thinking Her eyes began a blinking And that gal broke in two Instrumentals We’ll I heard the dishes crashin’ And I was gently dashing Getting out of sight Right there was my honey On who I spent all my money Turning into dynamite And after she exploded Her meanness all unloaded And Things began to simmer down I found myself a bleeding And very much in needing Stitches taken all around Then she started crying I found myself a sighing And Then I took her in my arms I was afraid to scold her And So I gently told her She didn’t do a bit of harm Now the first six months is over And I’m much the older And experienced with a wife If I can with stand the next six My friends say I’ll be fixed To take it all my life (Courtesy of lylemalone - May 2005)
