Pat Green – One For The Road lyrics

By Pat Green
? 1995 Dead Horse Music (Bmi)

Tree blows against my window, there's a storm brewing in my heart, watching credits roll on a late night T. V. Show, Lonely street light peeking through the cracks in my window shade, after all that he's seen I wonder if he truly knows, did he watch her when she slammed the door, like a hammer against the nail, leaving me in what's become a lonely prison cell.

Chorus

I thought always meant forever,
I guess you couldn't play second fiddle to my guitar,
Like an old man drinking down at the tavern,
Well I was one for the road and now you're headed on back home.

I met you at a party, seems like only yesterday, we were falling in love and living to chase our dreams, I gave you flowers on Valentines, and I had a strong feeling deep down inside, that someday we'd make a home and a family, I'd say I'm sorry in a heartbeat if you would only let me, I could lean to forgive if you only forget. In a hotel room down in Austin after another one night show, I caught your silhouette creeping down the street, under a moonlight glow, and as you took my hand, so went all my pain, we stepped right off the platform and caught the midnight train.

Chorus
