It's been a long time since I came around
Been along time, but I'm back in town
And this time I'm not leavin' without you

You taste like whiskey when you kiss me, oh
I'd give anything again to be your baby doll
This time I'm not leavin' without you

You said "sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we
Made love the first time
And you said to me

There's somethin', somethin' about this place
Somethin' 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Somethin', somethin' about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah somethin' about
Baby you and I"

It's been two years since I let you go,
I couldn't listen to a joke or rock 'n' roll
Muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart

On my birthday you sang me a heart of gold
With a guitar hummin' and no clothes
This time I'm not leavin' without you, oh, oh

"Sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we
Made love the first time and you said to me

There's somethin', somethin' about this place
Somethin' 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Somethin', somethin' about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah somethin' about
Baby you and I"

You and I
You, you and I
You, you and I
You, you and I
You and I
You, you and I
Oh yeah, I'd rather die
Without you and I

Come on!
Put your drinks up!

We've got a whole lot of money but we still pay rent
Cause you can't buy a house in heaven
There's only three men that imma serve my whole life
It's my daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ

There's somethin', somethin' about the chase, Six whole years
New York home born to roll you down
So why my lipstick are all over your face
Somethin' somethin' about just knowin' when it's right
So put your drinks up for Nebraska, for Nebraska, Nebraska I love ya!

You and I
You, you and I
Baby, I'd rather die
Without you and I

You and I
You, you and I
Nebraska, I'd rather die
Without you and I

It's been a long time since I came around
Been a long time but I'm back in town
And this time I'm not leavin' without you

    I think it's because L. Gaga wants to get her B. Friend back because he died and so she wants to buy a house in heaven but she can't because in order to do so she'd have to die so that's why they put their drinks up to him because that's what they do for dead people.

    The song was written about her long time love luc carl. It's talking about a great love in someone's life that was also lost, yet never forgotten. "muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart" refers to how the memories of their relationship were often difficult to take. It's talking about how sometimes there is just something about that person that connects you, it often can't be explained but it brings two people together and makes it unforgettable.

    It's about love and heartbreak on a more subtle note.

    I'm from ms an the version I listen to on an alabama radio says nebraska. I love the song. When I sing it I change the name myself to ackerman a place here where my guy lives and it fits even with the name of the county. Mississippi is to stuck up to have a radio station to play any of lady gaga songs. I love lady gaga forever I will be a little monster.

    When I first heard of this song, I was watching the video on the screen of the person in front of me. They had head phones on, and I did the best I could to read her lips, but I was intrigued enough to actually watch it for myself. I am so glad I did. This song made me think about the fact that you can love anyone, as long as it's true.
