Somebody keeps paying my bar tab
But the bartender won't tell me who
He gives me six cold ones to go when he closes And slips me a dollar or two

My woman is keeping me busy
And I'm afraid to go ask her why but the more
I keep drinking, the more I keep thinking There's somebody new in her life
 Somebody wants me out of the way
And I bet I'll find out when I go home today Here comes the waitress with a loaded down tray Somebody wants me out of the way

Now, my woman is under suspicion
And all I can see in my mind
It's two cheating lovers who love under cover
And the covers they're under is mine
 Somebody wants me out of the way
And I bet I'll find out when I go home today Here come the waitress with a loaded down tray Somebody wants me out of the way Somebody wants me out of the way
