Bad For Good
Well I changed my ways to please that woman
But I could never be good enough
Yeah, I gave up drinkin', took up churchin'
For a while it wasn't tough
Barkeep we've made our decision after doin' the best we could
Yeah, for better or worse
We're gonna be bad for good
So bring on the whiskey
Turn up the jukebox loud
Good Clean Fun
Eye on the crowd, baby
For folks who want to satisfy my need
Gonna find someone to spend some time with me
Well I ain't lookin' forever
Just a woman to treat a good man right
You look so good you got me thinkin'
You might satisfy my soul tonight
There's no harm done
He works way too much for way too little
He drinks way too early till way too late
He hasn't had a raise since near his day
In eighty-eight gets trampled on by everyone
Except when he comes in here
And he's the product of the Haggard generation
He's got a redneck side when you get him agitated
He got the gold toothed look from a stiff right hook
He's proud he took for his right wing stand on Vietnam
Says he lost his brother there
One coffee cup, one toothbrush
One set of keys, one car out in the drive
One half of the closet empty
One half of the bed cold at night
One of us just up and disappeared
That only leaves one of us 'round here
Can drive a man insane

There's a "For Sale" sign on a big old rusty tractor.
You can't miss it, it's the first thing that you see.
Just up the road, a pale-blue water tower,
With "I Love Jenny" painted in bright green.
Hey, that's my Uncle Bill, there by the courthouse.
He'll be lowerin' the flag when the sun goes down.
And this is my town.
I'm tired of spinning my wheels
I need to find a place where my heart can go to heal
I need to get there pretty quick
Hey mister what you got out on that lot you can sell me in a pinch
Maybe one of them souped up muscle cars
The kind that makes you think you're stronger than you are
Color don't matter no I don't need leather seats
All that really concerns me is
