i just had to laugh lyrics – webb wilder

i just had to laugh
to keep from cryin’
my heart stopped
i almost dropped
when you laid the news on me

i just had to run,
to keep from crawlin’
at your feet
darlin’ beggin’ pleadin’
don’t take that thing from me

what’ll i do now?
won’t you tell me please?
it’s hard to know, where i stand
when i’m down here on my knees

i just had to smile,
to keep from frownin’
a happy clown,
inside i’m down
ever since you said we’re through

i just had to ask,
to keep from wonderin’
the mystery was foggin’ me
like a fool i played the sleuth

what’ll i do now?
won’t you tell me please?
it’s hard to know where i stand
when i’m down here on my knees

i just had to laugh
to keep from cryin’
my heart stopped
i almost dropped
when you laid the news on me

i just had to swim
to keep from drownin’
a swollen stream
of tears and dreams
white water turning blue

what’ll i do now?
won’t you tell me please?
it’s hard to know where i stand
it’s hard to know where i stand
it’s hard to know where i stand
when i’m down here on my knees

i’m so low i could sit on a dime and swing my feet
