Country music maven Tammy Wynette released the heart-wrenching tune "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" in 1968. Enjoy the live performance and lyrics written by Curly Putman here!

Country music legend Tammy Wynette‘s 1968 tune “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” was written by Curly Putman. Interestingly enough, Wynette had already parted ways with two husbands, Euple Byrd and Don Chapel, at this point in her life. Her next husband would be fellow country star George Jones (1969-1975), followed by Michael Tomlin (1976) and George Richey (1978 – to her death in 1998).

There is no official music video for “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” however, Wynette performed the tune live in 1973 in Cypress Park, Florida. Watch below!

“D-I-V-O-R-C-E” Lyrics

Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man
So we spell out the words we don’t want him to understand
Like T-O-Y or maybe S-U-R-P-R-I-S-E
But the words we’re hiding from him now
Tears the heart right out of me.

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E will be goin’ away
I love you both and it will be pure H-E double L for me
Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-R-C-E.

Watch him smile, he thinks it Christmas
Or his fifth birthday
And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play
I spell out all the hurtin’ words
And turn my head when I speak
‘Cause I can’t spell away this hurt
That’s drippin’ down my cheek.

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E will be goin’ away
I love you both and it will be pure H-E double L for me
Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-R-C-E.
