"The song is about a woman who's having an affair, and her husband finds out and leaves her."

I don't think this is true. Rather, this song is about a woman who has married an older man for his money, and is now in a loveless marriage. She sneaks off and spends time with her boyfriend, and promises him that soon she will be leave her husband and be with him; however, both he and her husband know what she's really doing, and that she'll never ever really get out of her lies. 169.199.131.165 21:33, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree with you. This article is on my watch list, but I was on vacation when the incorrect text was added by another editor so didn't catch the error. I'm going to copy your text verbatim into the article. -- Engineer Bob 20:12, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
I disagree. "She's heading for the cheatin' side of town" pretty much sums up that she's having an affair. I won't change it back, but I think it's clear. Also, "... she pulls away and leaves him with a smile," also indicates it. Why pull away if you're just spending time with someone. Obviously there is an embrace to pull away from. It doesn't appear anyone has ever actually read the lyrics. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 22:19, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
