TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS


Quit While I'm Ahead Lyrics

Well I wont lie and say I didn’t think the good ones
all were taken
Since there aint no peaches falling from the tree that
I've been shaking
And it's solitary sleeping in this bed that I've been
making
Well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead

Well my intent was being handed I never laid a hand
And the kindness of my gesture was a good far cry from
grand
They were awful well intended, they were all that I can
stand
Ah maybe I should quit while I'm ahead

Chorus 1:
And now darlin if I called you, could you love me like
a kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you
really did
Well Darlin if I called you could you just pick up the
phone
Lord, I've been dancing with damnation and I'm drinking
all alone
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and 'bout
halfway to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while I'm ahead, oh Lord, well
maybe I should quit while I'm ahead

Well West Texas in the morning, little darling are you
down
Where the color of the country is your sweet eye shade
of brown
And if I told you how I felt, well you’d say boy get
out of town
Well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead

Chorus 2:
Now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a
kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you
really did
Well Darlin if I called you would you even talk to me
When I am lit up like a star atop your favorite
Christmas tree
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and 'bout half
way to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while im ahead, oh Lord well
maybe I should quit while I'm ahead

Chorus 1:
Now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a
kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you
really did
Well Darlin if I called you could you just pick up the
phone
Lord, ive been dancing with damnation and I'm drinking
all alone
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and 'bout half
way to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while I'm ahead, oh lord well
maybe I should quit while I'm ahead
