"She Don't Tell Me To" as written by Bob Dipiero, Tom Shapiro and Rivers Rutherford....
Every now an' then, on my home
I stop at a spot where the wild flowers grow, an' I pick a few
Cause she don't tell me to
I go out with my boys all right
But most of the time I call it a night before they do
Cause she don't tell me to
Sunday mornin', I'm in church
An' my butt an' my back an' necktie hurt, but I'm in the pew
She don't tell me to

Any other woman I know would have tried
To control me and it would be over
Blame it on my goin' on my own way attitude
All of that stubbornness melts away
When I wake with her head on my shoulder
An' I know I've got to love her
Until my life is through
Cause she don't tell me to

Well, I got demons and I've got pride
But when I'm wrong, I apologize like she's mine to lose
Cause she don't tell me to
Well, I got dreams in this heart of mine
But nothin' that I wouldn't lay aside if she asked me to
Cause she don't tell me to
An' she don't even know
That she keeps lookin' for the next right thing to do
Cause she don't tell me to
Yeah, yeah

Any other woman I know would have tried
To control me and it would be over
Blame it on my goin' on my own way attitude
And all of that stubbornness melts away
When I wake with her head on my shoulder
An' I know I've got to love her
Until my life is through
What else can I do
What else can I do
Whoa, I love her
Cause she don't tell me to
She don't tell me to

Every now an' then, on my home
I stop at a spot where the wild flowers grow, an' I pick a few
Yes I do

    General CommentThis song is a different sound than the typical Montgomery Gentry. He's singing on his softer side about how he will always love a girl and make the changes for her because he knows that it's right. He knows it is his duty to love her, and is loyal to the duty and made a love song. Good one, too.
