I Did the Right Thing Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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"
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
