"White Liar" is a moderate up-tempo song, backed primarily by steel guitar. The female narrator in the song describes confronting her man for cheating, whom she refers to as being a "white liar" for deceiving her — a reference to the term "white lie", or a small, harmless lie: Also, she ends up telling the truth that she's a white liar as well and she's been "playing" him like he's been "playing' her.
Hey, white liar
Truth comes out a little at a time
And it spread just like a fire
Slips off your tongue just like turpentine
And I don't know why, white liar
In the song's bridge, she states that she has been telling white lies to him as well.
