"Seven years With The Wrong Woman"

I've had an old song going round my head today and so I decided to google it and see if I could find it.  Well, of course, I could.  Here are the words:

(Bob Miller songwriter.
Seven years with the wrong woman
Is more than a man can stand
Seven years with the wrong woman
Will wreck most any good man.
Seven years with the wrong woman
It's the same in the mountain or dale
She'll stay awake all night tryin' to start a fight
Then have you thrown in the jail.
Seven years with the wrong woman
Is punishment there is bad
Seven years with the wrong woman
Will drive most any man mad.
When you married the wrong woman
There is only one thing you can do
Dig yourself a hole crawl in the hole
Then pull the ground over you.
--- Instrumental ---
Listen boys if you're thinking of marriage
Take warning to what I tell
Don't you marry the wrong woman
It's worse than living in jail.
Seven years with the wrong woman
It'll end you and turn your hair gray
They say love is blind but search till you find
A face you can stand every day...


The song was sung by Eddy Arnold and I remember it from when I was much younger.  I think the title was mentioned in a comedy show and that's why it's stuck in my head.  You can hear it on Youtube.



Why have I got this tune in my head today?  Seven years ago today, on a very cold and grey day I married my very lovely DH and I thank my lucky stars every day that I did.  Happy Anniversary sweetheart ♥♥
