(Marge Barton - Fred McRae)
Mel Tillis & Sue York

We're well known in every honky tonk in town
Not a night goes by that we don't make the rounds
People wonder why we choose to live this way
Why don't they ever stay at home I hear them say.

But home is where our hurt is
'Cause love doesn't live there anymore
Yes home is where our hurt is
That's why we don't stay at home much anymore.

--- Instrumental ---

What was once our happy home has come to be
A place to fuss and fight and disagree
Our lonely house with wall to wall regret
And these bright lights somehow help us to forget.

But home is where our hurt is
'Cause love doesn't live there anymore
Yes home is where our hurt is
That's why we don't stay at home much anymore...
This song is from the album "Stateside [Kapp]" and "Great Mel Tillis [Gusto]".
