The Lovin' Cup

The Lovin' Cup

Hayes Carll

I got all night to remember you by
I got a half-packed bag and a wonderin' eye
Gonna love you baby till the day I die
Don't worry

It's just sometimes people get a little fed up
Tired of not drinkin' from the lovin' cup
Gotta walk on my own like a little bitty pup and hurry

Yeah, it seem like every time I give my heart
A couple good years and the bullshit starts
I did my best honey, played my part, it's over

Now I'm sittin' cross-legged in a heartache tree
Knowin' damn well you ain't a' thinking about me
Just a sad reminder of a used to be, I'm gone

And we go down, down, down, down, down
Love just left this town

If I had a dream, I guess I sold it
If I had a secret, Lord, I told it
This here hand I never thought I'd fold it darlin'

Well, I paid my dues and I served my time
We had a good time but we never could rhyme
Put up a buck just to get back a dime, it's gone

I remember a time when the mood was right
And you'd say go and we'd go all night
Now's it a bitch, and moan, and fuss, and fight, I'm tired babe

If you're ever in trouble, honey, I'll be there
But I'd rather be one than a mournful pair
The blind can see that you don't care, I'm gone

And we go down, down, down, down, down
Love just left this town

Oh, what have I done?
I can't believe these things I said
I let a couple of bad years go to my head
Without your love, I'd be old and dead, I'm sorry

It's getting hard to handle that lonesome sound
It's goodbye trouble, I'm homeward bound
You're the only good thing this old boy's found, I'm home
And we go down, down, down, down, down
Love is back in town
And we go down, down, down, down, down
Love is back in town
