The Good Stuff

In the style of

Kenny Chesney


well me and my lady
had our
first big fight
so i drove around
till 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 barkeep
down at the end
and 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-a
you can't
find that here

'cause it's
the first long kiss
on a second date
mama's all worried
when you
get home late

and droppin'
the ring
in the
spaghetti plate
'cause your 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
picture and he
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 bottle
when the cancer
took her from me

but i've been sober
three years now
'cause the one thing
stronger than
the whiskey
was the sight of her
holdin' our 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 the good 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

and look
into those eyes
so deep in love
and drink it up
'cause that's
the good stuff
now that's
the good stuff
