MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS
Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

(Note. Recorded in E.)
[D] If the wife and I are fussin', brother that's our right
'Cause me and that sweet woman's got a license to fight [D7]
Why don't you [G7] mind your own business
[D] Mind your own business
'Cause if mind [A7] your business
Then you won't be mindin' [D] mine.

Oh, the woman on our party line's the nosiest thing
She picks up her receiver when she knows it's my ring
Why don't you mind your own business
Mind your own business
Well, if mind your business
Then you won't be mindin' mine.

I got a little gal that wears her hair up high
The boys all whistle when she walks by
Why don't you mind your own business
Mind your own business
Well, if mind your business
Then you sure wont be mindin' mine.

If I want to honky tonk around 'til two or three
Now, brother that's my headache, don't you worry 'bout me.
Just mind your own business
Mind your own business
If mind your business
Then you won't be mindin' mine.

Note. Next verse not on original recording
I might tell a lot of stories that may not be true
But I can get to Heaven just as easy as you
Why don't you mind your own business
Mind your own business
Well, if mind your business
Then you won't be mindin' mine.

Mindin' other people's business seems to be high-toned
I got all that I can do just to mind my own
Why don't you mind your own business
Mind your own business
If you mind your own business
You'll stay busy all the time.

Note. Recorded 1 March, 1949 at Castle Studios, Nashville, Tenn.
