Midland's“Cheatin’ Songs" introduces us to a lover wondering about the whereabouts of their romantic partner... Listen to the song here!

Heartache has always been a driving theme in country music, but Midland offers their take on the classic sentiment with “Cheatin’ Songs.” The trio’s Jess Carson, Cameron Duddy, and Mark Wystrach wrote the track alongside Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

The country music group performed the song at North Hollywood’s long shuttered Palomino Club during Midland’s one night only re-opening of the iconic honky tonk on Lankershim. Filmed by Collin Duddy, the clip takes a gritty, no frills approach to reflect the song’s content and the stripped-down reality the trio try to maintain.

“Cheatin’ Songs” Lyrics

Sometimes her jacket smells like cigarettes
But she hates to smoke
And when I ask her who she’s hanging out with
She says no one I would know

Maybe I’m crazy, maybe I’m not
Maybe she’s guilty, maybe she’s caught

She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs
The kinda hurt that gets you singing along
Something circa-1973
She’s lying with him and she’s lying to me
She’s bringing back diamond rings
Slipped in the pocket of her tight fittin’ jeans
It’s back in fashion doing somebody wrong
She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs

She used to call me on her way back home
But she don’t call anymore
And when she’s putting on that little black dress
Who’s she wearing it for?

Maybe I’m jealous; wouldn’t you be?
If you saw the way she ain’t lookin’ at me

She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs
The kinda hurt that gets you singing along
Something circa-1973
She’s lying with him and she’s lying to me
She’s bringing back diamond rings
Slipped in the pocket of her tight fittin’ jeans
It’s back in fashion doing somebody wrong
She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs

Steal guitars are back in style
Like tears fallin’ over her smile
Yeah, it’s been a while since country music loved a fool
Running around was cool

She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs
The kinda hurt that gets you singing along
Something circa-1973
She’s lying with him and she’s lying to me
She’s bringing back diamond rings
Slipped in the pocket of her tight fittin’ jeans
It’s back in fashion doing somebody wrong
She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs
She’s bringing back cheatin’ songs
