Almost Like Having You Here

The dog and I would sleep in,

but you would bark at the door,

You said I’d never be nothin,

but I never tried for too much more.

 

Our house rose up from the falls,

you know how much this life takes,

The neighbors had paper walls,

some blessings are bad breaks.

 

[chorus]

well, I’m  nursin’ a summer beer

and you still owe me a few,

I’m so miserable without you

it’s almost like having you here.

 

we had a drunkin’ time in Dallas,

we raged on the ocean pier,

we thought there was an us,

but it was just another long damn year.

 

[chorus]

 

You have your life in Tuscon,

I got mine in Tennessee,

The prairie’s a hidden plain,

you took enough time from me.

 

[chorus]
