This is what I want... is it too much to ask????

Well, Me and My lady had our first big fight
So I drove around till I saw the Neon Light
The Corner Bar.
It just seemed right so I pulled up.
Not a soul around but the old Barkeep down at the end 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 You can't find that here.

Cause its the first long kiss on a second date.
Mommas all worried when u get home late
and droppin the ring in the spaghetti plate
cause your hands are shakin so much
And Its 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 teerin up...
Yeah man thats the good stuff.

He grabbed a carton of milk and he poured a glass.
And I smiled and said Ill have some of that.
We sat there and talked as the hour passed like old friends.
I saw a black and white picture and it caught my stare.
It was a pretty girl with bu-font hair
He said Thats my Bonnie,
Taken bout a year after we wed.
He said I spent 5 years in the bar
when the cancer took her from me.
BUt Ive been sober 3 years now
cause the one things stronger than the whiskey...

Was the sight of her holdin' my 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.
Its a new t-shirt sayin Im a Grandpa.
Bein right there as our time got small
and holdin her hand when good lord called her up
Yeah man thats the good stuff.

He said, When you get home she'll start to cry.
When she says, Im sorry, say so am I.
Look into those eyes so deep in love...
and drink it up...
cause thats the good stuff.

Thats the good stuff.
