i’m doin’ my best lyrics – gary allan

single six months yesterday
thought i oughta celebrate
so i went down to grab a couple beers.

and i got so drunk i ripped my pants
i asked the bouncer for a dance
i thanked him as he threw me out
i woke up at a waffle house
with a shiner and a wild brunette
she don’t know my real name yet
well, no i ain’t over you.

but i’m doin’ my best
every day and every night
hangin’ on by a thread
that’s stretched just a little too tight
if i can’t find some peace of mind
i’ll take what i can get
i ain’t doin’ much good
but i’m doin’ my best.

i decided i’d get smart
and have a long talk with my heart
at some quiet spot outside of town.

so i took my best friend’s pontiac
i drove it like a maniac
right into the reservoir
i guess we ain’t best friends no more
just my luck a cop came by
who i beat up in junior high
he said i better have a good excuse.

i said i’m doin’ my best
every day and every night
hangin’ on by a thread
that’s stretched just a little too tight
if i can’t find some peace of mind
i’ll take what i can get
i ain’t doin’ much good
but i’m doin’ my best.

some day i just might join the human race again
if i can ever find a place to show my face again
yeah, i’m doin’ my best.

i said i’m doin’ my best
every day and every night
hangin’ on by a thread
that’s stretched just a little too tight
if i can’t find some peace of mind
i’ll take what i can get
i ain’t doin’ much good
but i’m doin’ my best.

i’m doin’ my best.
i’m doin’ my best…
