Cold Hard Facts Of Life   Misc. Country and Western

         by Porter Wagner
I got back in town a day before I'd planned to
I smiled and said I'll sure surprise my wife
I don't think I'll call,I'll just get on home
I didn't know the cold hard facts of life

I passed a little wine store on the corner
I pictured pink champagne by candle light
Stopped the car right then,got out and hurried in
My mind not on the cold hard facts of life

A stranger stood there laughing at the counter
He said I'll have two bottles of your best
Her husband's out of town and there's a party
He winked as if to say you know the rest

I left the store two steps behind the stranger
From there to my house,his car stayed in sight
It wasn't till he turned,into my drive that I learned
I was witnessing the cold hard facts of life

I drove around the block till I was dizzy
Each time the noise came louder from within
And then I saw our bottle there beside me
I drank a fifth of courage and walked in

Man you should have seen their frantic faces
As she screamed and cried please put away that knife
I think I'll go to hell,or I'll rot here in this cell
