I'd have a few more beers after work
A few more than I ought to, a few more than I used to
Hitch a ride with my old buddy John
Talk about the game that's on

Yeah, he's pretty good company but he ain't you
I'd lay my head down and try not to think
But I would'nt sleep a wink
Yeah, that's what I'd do

But if you stay I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna keep that promise that I made
'Cause deep inside I know that I'd be lost
If you ever went away

I'd probably spend a few more days out on the lake fishin'
Maybe even catch that big one, oh that'd be somethin'
Sit up on a big ol' stump watch the day fall down

Or probably just walk around, head on back to the house
Go through a door into a place I don't wanna be
Spend all night hangin' out with old memories

But if you stay I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna keep that promise that I made
'Cause deep inside I know that I'd be lost
If you ever went away

If you stay I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna keep that promise that I made
'Cause deep inside I know that I'd be lost
If you ever went away

I'd spend some time hangin' out with my old buddy John
Yeah, he's pretty good company but he ain't you
