Song Description

A love that should have never happened. A love like this will drive you to drink.

Story Behind the Song

This is about my first marrage.

Lyrics

I REMEMBER THAT DAY
THAT COLD JANUARY DAY
I BORROWED THAT OLD CAR FROM LISA MAY
I WENT DOWN TO CITY HALL
NOT REALIZING I WAS GOING TO TAKE THAT FALL
AND WIND UP BROKE AND HUNGRY AND ALL ALONE

MY BASS PLAYER IN MY BAND
YOU KNOW HE WAS THE BEST MAN
MY MOTHER WAS THERE TO WATCH ME SAY I DO
I TOLD HER I WAS A WRITER
A SINGER IN A ROCK AND ROLL BAND
AND I PLAY EVERY JUKE BOX JOINT IN THIS TOWN

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND
WHY SHE LEFT ME WHEN THINGS WERE BAD
I KNOW I COULD NOT HAVE WORKED THINGS OUT
SHE WAS YOUNG AND KIND OF SCARED
AND SHE LISTENED TO EVERYONE
AND I DON'T THINK SHE SEARCHED HER FEELINGS OUT

WHEN SHE FINALLY LEFT
I LIVED IN THIS BIG HOUSE ALL ALONE
SHE TOOK THE FURNITURE EVEN THE PHONE
AND THE BANK WAS ON MY ASS
THE MORTGAGE MONEY WAS GOING FAST
I SAID THAT'S LIFE, AND DRANK MYSELF TO DEATH
