Somebody Wants Me Out of the Way
by George Jones



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
