Songs About Cheatin' Cheaters: When Love Turns Sour

Most people have at least one cheating story to tell — whether they've done it, seen it, or merely heard about it. I'm gonna share with you a brush I had with a cheating partner, but I sure hope you'll return the favor.

When I was much younger, a purty young thang (who was even younger than I was) took a sudden liking to my steady boyfriend. Quite by accident, I intercepted a gift meant for him — a nice t-shirt — and the love note that went with it. Until then, I had no idea that there even was a third wheel in our relationship.

Rather than crying and making a mess of myself, I donned the offending apparel and marched right up to the corner drug store where the interloper was a part-time cashier. I waited in her register line, ensuring she would be the one to ring my items up.

As Miss Thang spotted my t-shirt, her eyes grew big. I started in: "I got your gift. Fits great. But if you are cheating with him, then you can dang well have him because I got NO use for a cheater."

Then I flipped my hair as only a young woman of a certain age can do and went to take care of business with that no good boyfriend.

Please share your story of cheating in the Comments Section below. If you prefer, you can describe "someone else's" experience. (Wink, wink.) Hey, we won't judge.

1. "If Loving You Is Wrong (I Don't Want to Be Right)" by Barbara Mandrell

In 1979, Barbara Mandrell hit the top of the country music charts with this single about a woman who is having an affair with a married man. (Country vocalist Lee Ann Rimes also recorded it, in 2006.) Against the advice of friends and family, she settles for sloppy seconds from him, although she knows their relationship is morally wrong:

"Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you ...
Knowing you've got a wife and two little children
Depending on you, too?"

The mistress decides that if loving him is wrong, she doesn't want to be right. Please, someone go call this man's wife.

2. "Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands" by Lee Greenwood

As this young couple stood at the altar, neither intended to break their vows to one another. However, as the years passed, work, infidelity, or whatever (we just don't know) took the husband away, and the couple's three-bedroom home became the bride's prison.

The Mrs. was left lonely and longing for some lovin'. She was forced to find it outside her marriage. Both Lee Greenwood (1982) and Reba McEntire (1995) sang this sad song so well that you sympathize with the wife.

3. "She Just Started Liking Cheatin' Songs" by Alan Jackson

What do you do when you notice your special lady has developed a sudden, unexplained interest in songs about infidelity? If you're like Alan Jackson (1999) or John Anderson (1980) you sing this catchy number:

"She just started liking cheatin' songs and what's bothering me
I don't know if it's the cheatin' she likes or just the melodies."

4. "Whoever's In New England" by Reba McEntire

In 1986, Reba McEntire won a Grammy Award for this sad song in which a loyal wife lets her husband know that he's spending an unusual amount of time away from home on "business" in Massachusetts. She reminds him that when the affair goes stale, she'll be waiting at home. Oh, Reba!

5. "Stay" by Sugarland

Sung from the pained perspective of the other woman, this is Sugarland's signature song (2007). It was inspired by Reba McEntire's "Whoever's In New England" and Jennifer Nettles' desire to tell the other side of the story.

The mistress begins the song insisting that her married lover stay with her when his wife telephones. She explains, "I'm so tired of being lonely."

Midway through, however, there is a shift in her perspective, accompanied by a raw emotional revelation. She doubts that he will ever leave his wife as promised. By the end of the song, the mistress has gained both emotional strength and power of voice, telling him to go home to his wife and stay there:

"So next time you find you wanna leave her bed for mine
Why don't you stay?"

6. "Sin for a Sin" by Miranda Lambert

Someone crossed the wrong girl here. She'll do more than just cut you. Miranda Lambert sings (2009) about a woman who discovered her man sleeping with another woman in their bed. The girl went all cray-cray, and will soon be receiving her mail at the state penitentiary. Although we're not sure exactly how she took them out, she references "fire and brimstone, dirt and a headstone." I hope she looks cute in a prison jumpsuit!

7. "Who's Cheatin' Who" by Alan Jackson

In this catchy, up-tempo song (1997), Alan Jackson has a tough time distinguishing who's being faithful, who's a cheater, and who just doesn't care.

Feisty Loretta Lynn: A Must See

8. "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man" by Loretta Lynn

This 1966 classic by Loretta Lynn describes a feisty confrontation between a wife and a mistress, told from the wife's perspective. The other woman has come bearing news of an impending break-up. Amidst the insults, Loretta has news of her own: You'll be taking that cheating man over my dead body.

One must admire the wife's spunk, although I do hope she put her man on a short leash for awhile afterwards.

9. "Soon" by Tanya Tucker

Tanya Tucker (1993) tells of a summer fling with a married man that got out of hand and turned into a string of broken promises about when he was going to leave his wife. As the seasons come and go, the lonely mistress realizes that "soon" will never come.

10. "Wish I Didn't Know Now" by Toby Keith

Poor Toby Keith (1993) suspected his lady was cheating, but he preferred not to know until she made it so painfully obvious that he had to leave her. The crestfallen fella regrets finding out.

11. "Married, but Not to Each Other" by Barbara Mandrell

It sure isn't easy loving someone else's husband, especially when you have your own husband to keep track of, too. So says Barbara Mandrell in this 1977 song. The cheaters are each tied to other people and don't want to hurt them, so they worry about whether their alibis sound like lies. It makes you wonder whether the excitement of their relationship lies chiefly in its forbidden nature.

12. "All These Years" by Sawyer Brown

Not every affair ends in divorce. In this 1992 Sawyer Brown ballad, the husband comes home early from work one day and catches his wife with another man. In a surprising twist, he blames himself for being neglectful of her needs ("... don't you rub it in too hard that I've been wrong.") The wife takes responsibility, too. She has realized that after all these years she has a lot to lose by betraying him.

Whoa, There! He's Not Worth Going to Jail For

13. "Kerosene" by Miranda Lambert

Murder? Are you kidding me? There is some major caustic hatred in this song. Miranda Lambert tells the story of a betrayed woman who has given up on love. Rather than crying, she has taken up cigarettes and strategically spreads the kerosene:

"Now I don't hate the one who left
You can't hate someone who's dead."

If you're like me and a little slow on the uptake sometimes, here's a gentle reminder: Miranda Lambert was the girl who also sang "Sin for a Sin" (#6 on our list). Cheat on her at your own risk. You've been warned.

A kiss on the collar, and the lipstick shade isn't yours.  This is not a good sign.
A kiss on the collar, and the lipstick shade isn't yours. This is not a good sign.

14. "Blame It on Your Heart" by Patty Loveless

Patty Loveless sure knows where to place the blame for a failed relationship. In this 1993 song, she tells her lover he doesn't know right from wrong and he's made a bad mistake:

"So blame it on your lying, cheating, cold dead beating
Two-timing and double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart."

15. "Tell Me a Lie" by Janie Fricke

In this 1983 song, Janie Fricke is a lonely lady in a bar who sees a handsome stranger remove his wedding ring. Then she has a one-night stand with him. Yet in the ultimate mind game she pleads with him to tell her a series of lies: that she looks familiar, that he just got into town, that he's not a married man, and that he loves her.

Janie! You are delusional, sister! (And don't even get me going about how dangerous your behavior is.)

16. "Lucille" by Kenny Rogers

Kenny Rogers (1977) describes a married woman who has cozied up to a stranger in a bar when in walks her husband, a struggling farmer. The husband chastises her:

"You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
With four hungry children
And a crop in the field
I've had some bad times
Lived through some sad times
But this time your hurtin' won't heal
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille."

When the cheaters leave the bar for a motel room, the other man cannot respond to beautiful Lucille's advances because the husband's refrain still echoes in his mind. Ain't nothing like a conscience, even if it's a few minutes late.

17. "Nobody" by Sylvia

Released in 1982 by Sylvia, this song became a crossover hit on both contemporary and country charts. It tells the story of a suspicious wife who has caught wind of troubling new behavior in her marriage: her husband's stolen glances towards a certain lady, unexplained hang-up phone calls, his distracted attention, and his late work hours. She's no fool. Get ready for a smack-down.

18. "You Belong With Me" by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift's 2008 song takes us all back to high school as she sings about a favorite crush who needs to be persuaded that he's with the wrong girl. Taylor thinks she makes a better match.

The girlfriend doesn't get his music or humor like Taylor does and wears a completely uptight style of clothing that contrasts with his and Taylor's. Taylor and he belong together because of their own easy-going relationship. So why hasn't the guy seen this all along?

19. "Lyin' Eyes" by The Eagles

This Eagles hit was a 1975 crossover from the rock charts. It tells the story of a woman who lies to her rich old husband so that she can go out to the cheating side of town for the evening. She meets up with a guy she knew from school and also tells him lies about a future together that will never happen. She's a practiced liar, but her eyes give her away.

20. "Talkin' In Your Sleep" by Crystal Gayle

In this 1978 Crystal Gayle song, a husband is coming dangerously close to being busted for his infidelity, thanks to his unfortunate tendency to talk about his love life in his sleep. His wife still hopes it is her he is alluding to because he hasn't mentioned anyone's name.

21. "Does He Love You?" by Reba McEntire and Linda Davis

These two women play the wife and mistress in this 1993 song. They compare notes about their love for the same man:

"But does he love you
Like he loves me?
Does he think of you
When he's holding me?
And does he whisper all his fantasies?
Does he love you like he's been lovin' me?"

22. "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" by Kenny Rogers

A paralyzed war veteran sits in bed begging his wife, Ruby, not to go out. She dolls herself up for the evening and goes searching for love regardless. The door slams and he wishes he could chase after her with a gun. Kenny Rogers made the song famous in 1969.

23. "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood

When Carrie Underwood suspects her man is cheating, she takes the matter into her own vengeful hands and teaches him a lesson in this 2007 song. Angry about the "bleached-blond tramp" her lover has ditched her for, she keys his car, carves her name into his leather seat, takes a baseball bat to the headlights, and slashes his tires.

24. "Jolene" by Dolly Parton

In 1973, Dolly Parton treated the world to this classic song about a heartbroken wife who pleaded with Jolene, a beautiful red-headed mistress, to leave her husband alone: "I'm begging of you please don't take my man. Please don't take him just because you can." The husband had been talking about Jolene in his sleep.

25. "Your Cheating Heart" by Hank Williams, Sr.

Hank Williams, Sr. made this song a country music standard way back in 1953. It warns lovers that the guilt of infidelity will keep them up at night. This song was released just weeks after the 29-year-old singer died of heart failure, aggravated by substance abuse.

26. 'When I Think About Cheatin'" by Gretchen Wilson

Gretchen Wilson's man has little to worry about in this 2004 song. She reassures him that although she's had plenty of opportunities to cheat — and has even come close a time or two —the thought of him leaving keeps her faithful.

27. "The Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks

Talk about a woman scorned. Passion runs high in this Garth Brooks song (1991) as a woman seeks vengeance against her cheating husband. He has returned home at 3:30 a.m. smelling of another woman's perfume, and she takes action:

"She runs back down the hallway and through the bedroom door
She reaches for the pistol kept in the dresser drawer
Tells the lady in the mirror, 'He won't do this again'
'Cause tonight will be the last time she'll wonder where he's been."

28. "You Lie" by The Band Perry

The unfaithful husband who is the subject of this 2010 song by The Band Perry is a no good, cheating liar. He better be ready to hear the insults because they're flying everywhere in this song!

29. "Cheatin'" by Sara Evans

Sara Evans is a scorned woman who likes to rub it in that she got the better deal in the divorce. In this 2005 song, she reminds her ex-husband that while he is living in a furnished room, driving a beat-up old car, and eating pork and beans off paper plates, she is living a far better life on his money. Some things just work out that way!

30. "War Is Hell On the Home Front, Too" by T.G. Sheppard

These days, the housewife T.G. Sheppard sings about in this 1982 song would get arrested for what she did. A man vividly recalls his seduction at age 16 (yes, that's right) by a lonely World War II bride:

"War is hell on the home front, too
God only knows what a woman goes though
She still needs what a man that's gone can't do."

31. "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" by Shania Twain

Wearing her 1990s mom jeans, Shania Twain playfully asks a lover in this 1995 song how many girls he has cheated with. She even has some guesses.

32. "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" by Joe Nichols

You don't know whether to laugh at the poor fella Joe Nichols is singing about or clue him in. In this humorous 2005 song, the man's lover has him convinced that tequila makes her clothes fall off. He tells her to put an extra layer on because she's been known to kick off her shoes, leave her jacket in a bathroom stall, lose an earring in her drink, or a contact down the sink.

Sometimes we only see what we want to see.

We'll keep it a secret. Does tequila make your clothes fall off?

33. "There's Your Trouble" by Dixie Chicks

Sometimes when we choose a mate, our "picker" is off and we pick a loser. That is exactly what the Dixie Chicks are trying to say in this upbeat 1998 hit.

34. "Stand by Your Man" by Tammy Wynette

Tammy Wynette's signature song was released in 1968, much to the chagrin of women who wanted her to grow a freaking backbone. The song celebrates a woman who supports her cheating husband regardless of the mistakes he makes:

"You'll have bad times, and he'll have good times
Doin' things that you don't understand
But if you love him, you'll forgive him
Even though he's hard to understand
And if you love him, oh be proud of him
'Cause after all he's just a man."

The song was negatively referenced by Hillary Clinton during the 1992 presidential campaign when Gennifer Flowers claimed she had a 12 year affair with the then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton.

35. "Girls Lie Too" by Terri Clark

The secret is out! Terri Clark revealed to the world in this 2004 song that yes, girls actually do lie too!

36. "White Liar" by Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert is unravelling the thread of lies in the relationship with her lover. He has a pattern of infidelities that he calls white lies. But now,

"The truth comes out a little at a time
And it spreads just like a fire
Slips off of your tongue like turpentine."

Then she drops a bombshell: he's not the only white liar. She's pretty accomplished at it herself.

37. "Angel In Your Arms" by Barbara Mandrell

Both Barbara Mandrell (1985) and Reba McEntire (1977) recorded versions of this sassy song about a wife warning her cheating husband that while he's out betraying their marriage yet again, she just might be doing the same. The Mrs. admits that while she was upset when she first discovered the husband's infidelity, she has now become just like the mistress: "The angel in your arms this morning is gonna be the devil in someone else's arms tonight."

38. "Stealing Kisses" by Faith Hill

Faith Hill takes a nostalgic look at what it was like to be young, desirable, and connected to the man she loves in this 2005 song:

"I was stealing kisses from a boy
Now I'm begging affection from a man
In my house dress ... don't you know who I am?
Take a look at who I am, I'm stealing kisses."

For years, her husband makes excuses to be away from home while she is left lonely, knowing the truth about what he's doing. She urges high school girls to "run, run, run" before they end up just like her.

39. "Should've Said No" by Taylor Swift

It was one moment of weakness when the man in this 2006 song said yes. However, Taylor Swift is not about to let him forget his mistake. She's going to kick him in the teeth a few times with some lyrics before she breaks up with him. Don't ever cheat on that girl. She will sing about it and make you infamous.

40. "You'll Think of Me" by Keith Urban

In this 2004 song, Keith Urban tells an unfaithful lover to go get packing. He seems to understand that the best revenge is living happily and never looking back:

"Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories, I don't need 'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me."

Euphemisms Associated with Adultery or Infidelity

"Left-handed honeymoon"
In the 1920s and 30s, the saying became popular as a way of describing an affair.
"Slipped my moorings"
When CIA Chief Gen. David Petraeus was caught cheating, he used this nautical term to describe the breach in his ethical anchors.
"Hiking the Appalachian Trail"
In 2009, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sandford famously used this excuse to cover up a weekend getaway with an Argentine mistress. He was completely off the grid. The saying now means going "missing" to be with a secret lover.
"Extradyadic behavior, extrarelational sex"
Academics often use these clinical terms to describe infidelity.
"Carry on with"
In the 1800s, it simply meant courtship. Now it implies an extramarital affair.
"Campaign wife"
Mistress of senior military officers.

        Cheating & lying....grab the tissues. Into every love, a little rain must fall. So sad....These are the songs we cry to. They bring back the memories that can still be so painful after many years....

        Such is life.....we love, we laugh and sometimes lose.

        I thought of one so old, FA, you probably weren't even born yet! One of the hugest heart breakers of all time....."Hurt" by Timi Yurro (1961) Not a country song.....I could cry just thinking about it!! :) sigh....Paula

I've posted it on an internal forum for some assistance to see if anyone else knows. Thank you for all of the song suggestions and for sharing the unfortunate cheating story from your own young life. I am glad that you don't accept that behavior in your own relationship. Boundaries. Trust.

        I found out my boyfriend was cheating on me on my birthday. He tried to denie everything but I had the screen shots. I told his father why we broke up now he won't even look at his son.

        Wonderful list. Am Looking for a song, male artist. He sees an ad for an excessively cheap car. Calls to verify. Turns out her husband got caught & she was getting rid of things he treasured. $1000 for a year old car, she threw the Arnold Palmer clubs in the trunk in free. Singer ends up moving in with her. Any ideas?

        Songs you missed that I would include: Linda On My Mind, Conway Twitty, Get

        Even, Facebook both Brad Paisley & Ronnie Milsap's Stranger In My House.

        I've never understood cheating. My father was very experienced though. I have enough problems with the man I have, why would I want to add another? Then to have to juggle them? No thanks.

        Cheating story: This is from my father's life.

        His 2nd ex had divorced him & he had a new live-in. When he first introduced her to my older brother (18), Brian's response was,"Oh, the signatory b*tch from work." Apparently, they had been together for at least 2 years before the divorce. He had to talk about her & the only way he could do that at home was to complain. This is when I realized how often he was unfaithful. I was just under 12. Because of his example I always knew what I would & would not accept in a relationship. My husband of 23 years, learned when we were dating that if he ever cheated or hit me, I was gone. Neither has ever been an issue.

        Trying to find the name of the song and the artist of a country song that was put out a few years ago!

        The song is about " a short nerdy guy who lives in his parents basement , comes home from work, his mom fixes him a snack. He then goes down to his room in the basement, gets on his computer and pretends to be someone other than himself! Describes himself as six foot two, eyes of blue and he's got 3 online girlfriend relationships (none of which he's ever met)!

        Can anyone recall the name or artist of this song?????

        Fun read! Y'know, actual cheating is not the only classic country music song topic, though. My second husband was insanely (and I mean really insanely) jealous. When I talked with my best friend (who happened to be a gay quadriplegic man) on the phone, I had to talk in code to inform him that I planned to put this dangerous nut's stuff on the front porch and change the locks. All I had to say was, "I've been listening to country music!" Nuff said! ;D

        Voted up & funny!

        I get a kick out of lyin' cheatin' songs, so I was excited to see that you had written about some of the best one's! Whenever I listen to the radio in the car, I always turn to the classic country station---the one with all the heartbreaking ballads. For whatever reason, I just love those sad songs.

        For the longest time, I thought Kenny Rogers was saying, 400 children, and I always wondered...How did he get so many children? OK, that's clueless of me---I know. And then there's "Whoever's In New England." Like you said, "Oh, Reba." But she sure sings it like nobody's business. And frankly, I think it's funny that Taylor Swift always tells on her boyfriends. She's not about to take any any foolishness lying down! "Stay" is a gorgeous song, but how pathetic can you be. Get a life, Sugarland!

        Anyhoo, I enjoyed this article immensely. Voting up and very funny!

        Remind me not to become a world famous country and western star. It's seems to be a given that you will be cheated on. The worst thing about cheating is that none of the three people involved end up "winning". The cheated have had their trust thrown in their face. The cheats have been exposed. The cause of the cheating discovers a third person is involved, hence demoting them to being cheated on.

        Jo - Cheating is what helps to keep both the divorce industry and the bridal industry booming, and it helps with real estate agents, therapists, fitness centers, and allied business doing well. In a way, it's become an American institution,

        Flourish, sometime in the early 1980s I discovered a friend of mine was carrying on with my boyfriend. One night we were all at a party (she didn't know I knew). I called her into a back room, shoved her up against the wall, put my hand on her neck to hold her still and proceeded to bang her head against the wall. I didn't hurt her, but she got the message. I ended up breaking up with him a couple years later 'cuz cheating was his MO - even when we lived together.

        Faith Reaper - I am so glad you have no personal cheating stories to tell. I love Loretta Lynn's spunkiness, too, although I hope she gave that husband a real good talking to. I may have just left him and taken all his money, but that was the 60s and women couldn't even have credit cards in their own name then. Whew. I am thankful for a loyal and loving husband. With all the research I did on this hub and my previous rock music cheating hub, we are getting lots of ads for divorce lawyers. Luckily, very little disturbs Mr. Flourish, as he is pretty easy going and just laughed it off.

        Whoa, what a hub, only written as you, Flourish, can write it! Great list here. I can't make any cheatin' comments lol, thankfully, but know of many sad stories, but it wouldn't be fair to those to share. I am guessing all those women out there who may have thought they could take my man already knew what I would have told them, "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man." Hee hee

        I am glad you dealt with your cheatin' boyfriend right off as soon as you found out! That was great, your approach : )

        Can't beat Hank Williams' "Your Cheatin' Heart" and it will certainly tell on you sooner or later. You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
