Intentional Heartache - Dwight Yoakam

She drove South, I-95, straight through Carolina.
She didn't use no damn map to find her way.
She pulled off on a state route just north of Charlotte,
An' took mostly county roads the rest of the day.

She said: "I'll give him an intentional heartache:
"That'll hurt a lot worse than the one that he left in me.
"Would you all step back so a girl might could get started,
"Then he won't have to look twice to see."

She drove up across the yard and through his Momma's garden.
Didn't touch the brakes, slammed right into his Chevrolet.
Tossed out his clothes, boots, Bud-cap and signed Dale Jr. poster,
Then shot the whole mess neon green with a can of DuPont spray.

She said: "I'll give him an intentional heartache:
"That'll hurt a lot worse than the one that he left in me.
"Would you all step back so a girl might could get started,
"Then he won't have to look twice to see."

Instrumental break.

She said: "I'll give you an intentional heartache:
"That'll hurt a lot worse than the one that you left in me.
"And tell your little tramp to step back, so your new ex-wife can get started,
"And you won't have to look twice to see."

"Just watch this."
Then she sprayed that Bud cap bright green.
Said: "Connie, put that can of spray paint down."

"Just watch this."
Then she pulled them Nocona boots out, sprayed them neon too.
"Put the can down, Connie."

She give it hell with that can of spray paint.
He kept yelling at her: "Just put the can down."
An' she sprayed him.

Then she just did a little dance on top of that Dale Jr. poster,
Just kind of a hoochie coochie.
"All right Connie." He said. "I saw you, Connie, now put it down."

"Just watch this."
Run over to the passenger side of that, that Monte Carlo,
And she sprayed: "Tramp" on the firewall fender.

So his Momma went back into the house.
She tried to call her sister: what was that girls name?
She said you gotta come get this girl. Nancy, I think.

"She said watch this."
Said: "Lookee here, lookee here, watch this."
She run that girl back up on the porch.

She said: "Dammit," screamin' at her: "Tramp."
Oh yeah, she give him an intentional heartache.
"All right, all right, Connie, I heard you."

His Momma was crying in there on the 'phone.
His Daddy said: "I told you that girl was gonna get like that.
She said: "Watch this, here."
