Well I love that girl with all my heart
Yeah I love her more than anything
But she told me yesterday
To get the hell away
I hope that was something she didn't mean

Last week I tried to kiss her
Oh it seemed like the right thing to do
But she slapped me across the face
And we went our separate way
I turned around and screamed I still love you

Chorus:
Cause there's a long list of reasons
Why I keep hangin' on
I hope you all can see
Just what she's doing to me
I'm tired of her always treating me wrong

I tried to call her on the phone
Just hoping we could talk a little more
She didn't like that at all
She hung up and blocked my calls
Now I can't reach her anymore

She went out with some other guy
I tried not to let it bother me
It took the wind right out of my sails
I got drunk and got in jail
Now I'm as lonely as I can be

Chorus:
Cause there's a long list of reasons
Why I keep hangin' on
I think I'll sit right here
And drink another beer
Until the early morning dawn

I got out of jail and saw her on the street
I tried so hard to wave her down
She just hopped into her truck
Hit the gas and off the clutch
She flipped me off as she was leaving town
She packed up and she moved far away
My friends say it was all because of me
I don't think that's true
I'll see her again real soon
Cause I found out that she moved out to Abilene

Chorus:
There's a long list of reasons
Why I keep hangin' on
I think I'll sit right here
And keep on drinkin' beer
Until the early morning dawn

Yeah I think I'll sit right here
And keep on drinkin' them beers
Until the early morning dawn
