"What a Way to Go" is a song written by Bobby David and Jim Rushing. It was originally recorded by Bobby Borchers in 1977.
It was later recorded by American country music artist Ray Kennedy. It was released in 1991 as the first single from his debut album, What a Way to Go. The song reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in February 1991. Kennedy's version featured an altered verse from the original.
To make the single more suitable for radio airplay, the line "I got hogtied by a hooker in Ohio," from the song's chorus, was edited to replace the word "hooker" with "redhead."
