One For The Road Lyrics

Tree blows against my window, there's a storm brewing in my heart
Watching credits roll on a late night TV show
Lonely street light peeking through the cracks in my window shade

After all that he's seen, I wonder if he truly knows, did he watch her
When she slammed the door like a hammer against the nail
Leaving me in what's become a lonely prison cell

I thought always meant forever, I guess
You couldn't play second fiddle to my guitar
Like an old man drinking down at the tavern
Well, I was one for the road and now you're headed on back home

I met you at a party, seems like only yesterday
We were falling in love and living to chase our dreams I gave you flowers
On Valentines and I had a strong feeling deep down inside

That someday we'd make a home and a family I'd say
"I'm sorry in a heartbeat", If you would only let me
I could lean to forgive if you only forget

In a hotel room down in Austin after another one night show
I caught your silhouette creeping down the street under a moonlight glow
And as you took my hand, so went all my pain
We stepped right off the platform and caught the midnight train

I thought always meant forever, I guess
You couldn't play second fiddle to my guitar
Like an old man drinking down at the tavern
Well, I was one for the road and now you're headed on back home
