Jim Stafford – I Got Stoned And I Missed It lyrics

I was sittin in my basement
I just had myself a taste of something
That I love to taste because it seems to
Make my day
When my friend calls on the phone and says
I'm glad I caught you home.
There's a fool down on the corner
Giving hundred dollar bills away
He said time is a wastin
So get your motor racin
But I had another taste n
I headed for the door
And I tried to find my hat
And I had a little more
And I had another taste and then

I got stoned and I missed it
I got stoned and I missed it
I got stoned, and it rolled right by
I got stoned and I missed
I got stoned and I missed
Woe me oh my

A very lovely lady said that she would be my baby
And we both wound up at my place for a taste
And to talk a bit
Next day she woke up rosey
And she snuggled up so cozy
When she asked me if I loved her
It hurt me to admit


Aint makin no excuses for anything I uses
To sweetin my relationships and
Brighten up my day
But when my earthly race is over
And I'm headed for the clover
And they ask me how my life has been
I guess I'll have to say
