I left by the back door
With my wife's lover's smoking gun
I don't know what I was hoping for
I hit the road at a run
I was your lover
I was your man
There never was no other
I was your friend
Till we came along this road
Till we came along this road
Till we came along this road

I ain't sent you no letters, Ma
But I'm looking quite a trip
The world spinning beneath me, Ma
Guns blazing at my hip
You were my lover
You were my friend
There never was no other
I hope you understand
Till we came along this road
Till we came along this road

    General CommentI always thought he was referring to himself:
    "My wifes lover" = him.
    "smoking gun" = temper

    "There never was no other
    I was your friend
    Till we came along this road"

    I think "momma" is a 70s referral to her.

    "Guns blazing at his hip" = full blown argument, when you just shoot to kill.
    Heavy words are very lightly thrown with force during arguments.

    It's just a breakup song, disguised a bit as being about murder.
    The only thing murdered was their relationship on all layers.

    General CommentI agree that the reference to 'Ma' - he is still talking to his lover that he has left - but he is now out on the 'road' fighting with his lovers - 'guns blazing at my hip' - he knows she was the one but he has no way back
