Fred Eaglesmith – How's Ernie lyrics

Well, I don't miss her anymore the way that I used to
Was a time when my heart was broke
Somehow I got through
Still, her father became my best friend
That's one thing for sure
Funny how I miss him
A lot more than her
How's Ernie
Hey, that's what I would say
If I wrote her a letter
Or called her up one day
How's Ernie
You know it ended up real bad
But I don't miss her anymore
Though I sure do miss her dad
He was kind of deaf in one ear
So I'd kind of have to shout
We'd talk guns and horses
'Till the lights went out
Why, we'd sit up 'till midnight drinkin'
Whiskey and water
And he'd pretend not to know
I was sleeping with his daughter
How's Ernie
Hey, that's what I would say
If I wrote her a letter
Or called her up one day
How's Ernie
You know it ended up real bad
But I don't miss her anymore
But I sure do miss her dad
But I was young and foolish
How was I to know
Hey, the price I paid for my mistakes
Was to up and watch her go
And I don't mind that she went and done
What I guess she had to do
No, I don't mind but I wonder why
She had to take him too
How's Ernie
Hey, that's what I would say
If I wrote her a letter
Or called her up one day
How's Ernie
You know it ended up real bad
But I don't miss her anymore
But I sure do miss her dad
No, I don't miss her anymore
But I sure do miss her dad
