Only God Knows Why” is a song by American musician Kid Rock. It was recorded in 1998 for his album Devil Without a Cause, on which it features as the eleventh track. The song was the first recorded ballad on record by Kid Rock. It was a weary road ballad in which the first four lines were written while he was in jail after a bar fight after signing to Atlantic Records in 1997. It is notable for its heavy use of Auto-Tune.

The song was released as a single in 1999 and peaked at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, eventually ranking at number 67 on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 for 2000. VH1 named it the 19th greatest power ballad in 2002. Outlaw country singer David Allan Coe released a live cover version on his release Live at Billy Bob’s in 2003.
