Mudcrutch - The Wrong Thing To Do Lyrics

Well, my daddy took me campin'
Out under the stars
Left me by the fire
While he hit the bars
And I broke my finger
On a trailer hitch
Mamma called daddy
That son of a bitch, all right

Well a hundred miles to go
You draggin' your ass
I'm in a Japanese car
That ain't gonna last
And you forever drivin'
On the wrong side of the road
Wearing dungarees
That your mother stole

Well my mamma loved me
But my daddy don't
I'm tryin' to work it all out
But I probably won't
I got a woman waiting
At the top of the stairs
It's the wrong thing to do
But I don't care

Well she was blond and tall
She was 23
Born into the world
To get the best of me
And she never paid back
Half what she stole
She wanted my money
So I gave her my soul

Well I was flying half mast
On the 4th of July
In a bar in Lake City
With a western tie
And I was thinkin' hard
About changin' my name
And headed for Miami
When the daylight came

    what a great song. I "discovered" Mudcrutch listening to Tom Petty radio on Sirius XM radio. OMG. How did I miss this??? Graduated HS in 1980 and discovered Mudcrutch in 2019. Maybe an old dog can learn-

    Is the guitar player using one of those telecasters with the strap peg acts as the "whammy" bar when you pull down on the guitar?

  34. DerDenWaldLiebt2011


  35. Kevin Anton

    Difficult to go wrong with Benmont Tench & Mike Campbell along ...

    evelyn baron

    And 2 yrs later how do they feel without him? All that flack in the band that outlasted every other one; he took the heat for all of them. 2 geniuses? Definitely. No question. And who goes and finds his first band because he loves his friends and friends and music are inseparable? I love Springsteen's music but BRUUUUUUUCE the boss would never contemplate it.

    Melissa Gerber

    Evelyn, they’re still shattered, of course.

  36. Lorraine Klimek

    Thank you. This is a good quality video. Love Mudcrutch album. I think his beard and hair look great - he looks so sweet and shaggy!

  47. Solid Earth Music // videos by Patrick Beaumont

    I was at that show! I have never seen this video until tonight... is there more? Thanks for posting!

  48. Classic Rock Kid

    There's something surreal about knowing this happened about half an hour away from where I live.

  49. SuperEcwchampion

    What else shall I learn about these guys. Rock live and in the studio. And the rhythm guitarist is the brother of Eagles co-founder Bernie Leadon.
