maybe you should know lyrics – kenny rogers

in a bar in toledo, across from the depot
on a barstool she took off her ring
i thought i’d get closer so i walked on over
i sat down and asked her the name.

when the drinks fin’lly hit her
she said, “i‘m no quitter but fin’lly quit living on dreams.”
i’m hungry for laughter and here ever after
i’m after whatever the other life brings.

in the mirror i saw him and closely watched him
i thought how he looked out of place
he came to the woman who sat there beside me
he had a strange look on his face.

the big hand were callused, he looked like a mountain
for a minute i thought i was dead
but he started shakin‘, his big heart was breakin‘
he turned to the woman and said:

when the drinks fin’lly hit her
she said, “i‘m no quitter but fin’lly quit living on dreams.”
i’m hungry for laughter and here ever after
i’m after whatever the other life brings…
