Two weeks notice would've been real nice
I could have put this broken heart on ice
Belly full of whiskey, all laid up in bed
Gearin' up for what lies ahead

Could've quit my job and let my beard grow out
Another sad ole story that you hear about
But I got nothin' from you
It came without a warning at all

It was high and dry when you told me goodbye
Now, isn't that a hell of a deal
Right out of the blue, you broke it in two
And now you want to know how I feel
Why don't you come around when the swellin' goes down
Right now, I'm doing okay
Hit me back, I should know something in a couple of days

It ain't sunk in yet, I know that ole pain
It'll come like the storm once it starts to rain
Right now, the sky is a couple of clouds
It's gonna be hell once the bottom falls out

I might head for shelter, I might run and hide
I might take my chances standing outside
It's too early to tell
Hell, you just left me today

It was high and dry when you told me goodbye
Now, isn't that a hell of a deal
Right out of the blue, you broke it in two
And now you want to know how I feel
Why don't you come around when the swellin' goes down
Right now, I'm doing okay
Hit me back, I should know something in a couple of days

Why don't you come around when the swellin' goes down
Right now, I'm doing okay
Hit me back, I should know something in a couple of days

Girl, hit me back
I should know something in a couple of days
