Somebody keeps paying my bar tab
But the bartender won't tell me who
He gives me six cold ones, to go when he closes
And slips me a dollar or two.

My woman is keeping me busy
And I'm afraid to go ask her why
But the more I keep drinking
The more I keep thinking
There's somebody new in her life.

Chorus:
Somebody wants me out of the way
And I bet I'll find out when I go home today
Here comes the waitress with a loaded down tray
Somebody wants me out of the way.

Now my woman is under suspicion
And all I can see in my mind
It's two cheating lovers who love under cover
And the covers they're under is mine.

Chorus:
Somebody wants me out of the way
And I bet I'll find out when I go home today
Here come the waitress with a loaded down tray
Somebody wants me out of the way.

Somebody wants me out of the way...
