So you sailed away into a grey sky morning Now I’m here to stay, love can be so boring And nothing’s quite the same now I just say your name now. But it’s not so bad You’re only the best I ever had You don’t want me back You’re just the best I ever had…
Verse 1: I read a note my grandma wrote Back in 1923 Grandpa kept it in his coat And he showed it once to me He said Boy you might not understand, but a long long time ago Grandma’s daddy didn’t like me none But i loved your grandma so We had this crazy plan..
If i could write a letter to me and send it back in time to myself at 17 First i’d prove it’s me by saying look under your bed There’s a skoal can and a playboy no one else would know you hid And then i’d say i know it’s tough when you break up..
I remember trying not to stare The night that i first met you You had me mesmerized And three weeks later in the front porch light Taking forty five minutes to kiss goodnight I hadn’t told you yet, but i thought i loved you then. Now your my whole life Now your my whole world..
He said i’ll love you ’til i die She told him you’ll forget in time As the years went slowly by She still preyed upon his mind. He kept her picture on his wall Went half crazy now and then He still loved her through it all Hoping she’d come back again. Found love letters..
Rain dripping off the brim of my hat It sure is cold today And here i am’a walking down sixty-six Wish she hadn’t done me that way Sleeping under a table at a road side park A man could wake up dead But it sure seems warmer than it did Sleepin in our king size..
