But Every Word I Spoke

There are those who’d like to change the way I’m living
It seems they just don’t like me the way I am
Tomorrow I may live the way they’re thinkin’
Ah, but tonight I just don’t give a damn

About
George Jones, in 1975, following his divorce from Tammy Wynette.

Thom Jurek of AllMusic calls the song “the bitterest cut Jones ever recorded.” He claims he wrote it at 3 a.m. in the aftermath of the divorce, and it comes right from the Hank Williams tradition of catharsis songs.
