"I Did the Right Thing" as written by and Braddock....
I pull into my driveway
While the day is slowly dying in the west
I look in that direction
To the setting sun and the one who loved me best

We cried and said goodbye
Seems like a million years ago or was it yesterday?
She swore she'd always love me
God, I wonder if she still feels that way

I did the right thing
I did the right thing
I went back to my wife
Straightened out my life
I did the right thing

I walk in to the house
And hear small voices singing, "Daddy's here"
The lady of the house puts down the beer she's drinking
And says, "Hello, dear"

While we make small talk
My mind takes a long walk back to someone else
And I close my eyes and repeat those little lies
I often tell myself

I did the right thing
I did the right thing
I went back to my wife
Straightened out my life
Lord, I did the right thing

My face is wet with teardrops
I fumble for my wrist watch, it's half past three
Once more I was dreaming of the woman
Who once said she'd die for me

But I did what was right
And it hurts me every night now that she's gone
And all my friends are proud
'Cause I gave her up to save my home

I did the right thing
Sure, I did the right thing
I went back to my wife
Straightened out my life
I did the right thing
I did the right thing
