"Sorry You Asked" as written by and Dwight Yoakam....
You'll be sorry you asked me the reason
That she's not here with me tonight
And I know you were probably just acting polite
But you'll be sorry you ever asked why

We started having problems in August last year
So things have been kinda rough for quite awhile
And you know how you think it'll work itself out
Well mister that thought's wrong by a long, long mile

You'll be sorry you asked me the reason
That she's not here with me tonight
And I know you were probably just acting polite
But you'll be sorry you ever asked why

I mighta, shoulda seen
That we were drifting apart
But I was in what I guess you'd call denial
And I always heard they say that you're the last one to know
Well buddy I was last by a long, long while

You'll be sorry you asked me the reason
That she's not here with me tonight
And I know you were probably just acting polite
But you'll be sorry you ever asked why

Okay we both have the tendency to overreact
So I can't really tell you who's at fault
But there were certain third parties, well her sister for one
Who helped bring our reconciling to a drop-dead halt

You'll be sorry you asked me the reason
That she's not here with me tonight
And I know you were probably just acting polite
But you'll be sorry you ever asked why

Aren't you sorry you ever asked why
I'm sure sorry you ever asked why

Did I tell you how she tried to have me locked out of the house
I had to go hire a lawyer and all
But I know that it was mostly her family's idea
I could hear 'em tell her what to say every time I'd call
You'll be sorry you asked me the reason

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is all on the surface, but it sure it catchy. He's just basically telling somebody who asked where his girlfriend was exactly what happened, in detail. I think everybody's either done this or had a friend do the exact same thing to them. It's just a fantastic break-up song.
