What I Don't Know
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


What I don't know might not hurt me
If I stay dumb and no one tells
But if I find out that you've been cheatin'
What I don't know might get you killed

Well, death row in prison it don't look half as bad
As a life filled with heartache over you
So if you're a playin' those dirty little games
You better pray that I don't find out the truth
'Cause what I don't know might not hurt me
If I stay dumb and no one tells
But if I find out that you've been cheatin'
What I don't know might get you killed

Well Smith and Wesson juries hold a real mean, nasty court
And the verdict that they pass is never slow
So keep on a wearin' that little poker face
'Cause soon enough your cards will have to show

And what I don't know might not hurt me
If I stay dumb and no one tells
But if I find out that you've been cheatin'
What I don't know might get you killed
What I don't know might get you killed
What I don't know might get you killed

This is an incredible song. Dwight Yoakam is such a great artist!

For a long time they shut him off from country music annual awards, because he was "too country". But they couldn't hold him back for long.

Marvin Thayer
