just enough to get in trouble lyrics – hank williams jr.

i’ve been down my share of
country roads, boulevards and interstates
i kinda know my way around
a little ’bout a lot of things
i know what the cards say
sometimes the hard way, it looks so easy

my curiosity always gets me in a ditch
what really happens if you turn
that kn*b or flip that switch
something i shouldn’t do
why, you already knew
that’s all been taught to me

i know just enough to get in trouble
and that’s just enough to understand
that the more i know, the more i’m sure
someday it’s gonna do me in

yeah, when my time comes
and i’m dead and gone
let ’em put it on my tombstone
he knew just enough to get in trouble
but not enough to leave it alone

they got a book somewhere
on everything a woman wants
’bout how and when and where
and why they will and why they won’t
that’s complicated stuff
and when it comes to love, i’m still learning

i know just enough to get in trouble
and that’s just enough to understand
that the more i know, the more i’m sure
someday it’s gonna do me in

yeah, when my time comes
and i’m dead and gone
let ’em write it on my tombstone
he knew just enough to get in trouble
but not enough to leave it alone

waylon always told me
?son, everybody makes mistakes?
and how come it’s always me
standing there when something breaks?

yeah, i know just enough to get in trouble
and that’s just enough to understand
that the more i know, the more i’m sure
someday it’s gonna do me in

yeah, when my time comes
and i’m dead and gone
let ’em write it on my tombstone
here lies just enough to get in trouble
but not enough to leave it alone
he knew just enough to get in trouble
but not quite enough to leave it alone
