The Good Stuff
Well, me and my lady had our first big fight So I drove around 'til I saw the neon lights Of a corner bar and it just seemed right so I pulled up Not a soul around but the old bar keep Down at the end lookin' half asleep But he walked up and said, "What'll it be?" I said, "The good stuff" He didn't reach around for the Whiskey He didn't pour me a Beer His blue eyes kinda went misty He said, "You can't find that here" 'Cause it's the first long kiss on a second date Momma's all worried when you get home late And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate 'Cause you're hands are shakin' so much And it's the way that she looks with the rice in her hair Eatin' burnt suppers the whole first year And askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up Yeah man, that's the good stuff He grabbed a carton of milk and he poured a glass And I smiled and said, "I'll have some of that" We sat there and talked as an hour passed like old friends I saw a black and white picture and it caught my stare It was a pretty girl with bouffant hair He said, "That's my Bonnie, taken 'bout a year after we wed" He said, "I spent five years in the bar when the cancer took her from me" "But I've been sober three years now" "'Cause the one thing's stronger than the Whiskey" Was the sight of her holdin' my baby girl The way she adored that string of pearls I gave her the day that our youngest boy Earl Married his high school love And it's a new t-shirt sayin' I'm a grandpa Bein' right there as our time got small And holdin' her hand when good the Lord called her up Yeah man that's the good stuff He said, "When you get home she'll start to cry" "When she says, I'm sorry, say so am I" "Look into those eyes so deep in love and drink it up" "'Cause that's the good stuff" That's the good stuff
