““She’s Tired of Boys” is a classic Brooks love song, with a crucial, unusual detail that makes it stand out. In this case, it’s a May-December romance between a young, white-collar woman and an older blue-collar guy: “When she walked on to the job site we damn near died/She was a young man’s dream full of college and pride.” The detail is there to grab your attention, but it’s not played lazily, for laughs or shock. And the song is given added poignancy with a chorus featuring lovely harmony sung by Mr. Brooks’s wife, Trisha Yearwood, who adds a layer of empowered fatigue to Mr. Brooks’s knowing wink.”
