I Did the Right Thing

(Bobby Braddock)

This song was written and recorded in 1979 by Bobby Braddock and appears on his first solo album of the same name.  The country singer Johnny Paycheck also recorded it and after his death it appeared on the album Touch My Heart: A Tribute to Johnny Paycheck where Dallas Wayne covered it.  This song revolves around a man who loves someone but leaves them to go back to their wife to save their home, and all the personal suffering this decision would cause him.
