"Cadillac Tears" as written by and Wynn/satcher Varble....
Well, he wanted someone firmer and he wanted someone younger,
And he always had a thing for blondes.
As it happened, his new secretary happened to be all that rolled into one.
And the woman who had lived with him, an angel who had given him,
The last twenty-two years.
Is now cryin' big Cadillac tears.

Cadillac tears, don't hurt so bad.
Cadillac tears, she ain't so sad.
Well, she might a lost her wedding ring,
But she took him for ev'rything,
No, mamma didn't do too bad.
Aw, she's crying big Cadillac tears.

Instrumental break.

Well, she's runnin' through his money so fast it isn't funny,
Aw, she's emptied every shop in town.
Oh, she bought 'em Akin diamond rings and lots of other shiny things,
to wear when she goes steppin' out.
And she's headed to her lawyers 'cause this morning when he called her,
He said: "Checks are pilin' up down here."
Aw, she's crying big Cadillac tears.

Cadillac tears, don't hurt so bad.
Cadillac tears, she ain't so sad.
Well, she might a lost her wedding ring,
But she took him for ev'rything,
No, mamma didn't do too bad.
Aw, she's crying big Cadillac tears.

Hey man, she's cruisin' down the street with custom wheels and leather seats,
You know, she gets a new one every year.
Aw, she's crying big Cadillac tears.

Mamma is cryin' big Cadillac tears.
Big old Cadillac tears.
