Good Love

“Good Love”

By: Steve Everett


Verse 1

In the back of my mind there’s a bottle of bourbon 

And a girl that I met last night

Well I took ‘em both down to the edge of the river

And we had us a real good time

In the back of my head there’s a conversation

Should I call her or make her sweat

And I’m wonderin’ if she took a sip of my whiskey

With a piece of my heart in it



Good love, good Lord

Good God good lovin’ on the river shore

The whiskey is long gone

But the buzz from you and me’s still going strong


Verse 2

On the back of my neck there’s a couple of scratches

That I’m pretty sure came from you

Either that or I got ‘em by bein’ on the bottom

Of a hard-hittin’ kiss or two

On the back of my hand there’s a phone number written

With a heart where the zero goes

And I’m thinkin’ of dialin’ and drinkin’ and smilin’

With a girl that I can’t let go



Any given time or any place

Never know just when your life can change
