one for the road lyrics – pat green

tree blows against my window
there’s a storm brewin’ in my heart
watchin’ credits roll on a late night tv show
lonely street light peekin’
through the cracks in the window shade
after all that he’s seen i wonder if he truly knows

did he watch her when she slammed the door
like a hammer against a nail
leavin’ me in what’s become
a lonely prison cell

chorus
i thought always meant forever
guess you couldn’t play second fiddle to my guitar
like an old man drinkin’ down at the tavern
i was one for the road so your headed on back home

i met you at a party seems like only yesterday
we were fallin’ in love and livin’ to chase our dreams
i gave you flowers on valentines
and i had a strong feelin’ deep and down inside
that someday we’d make a home and a family

i’d say i’m sorry in a heartbeat
if you would only let me
i could learn to forgive if you would only forget
a hotel room down in austin
after another one night show
i caught your silouette creepin’ down the street
under a moonlight glow

and as you took my hand
so went all my pain
we stepped right off the platform and caught the midnight train

chorus
and i guess always means forever
and i won’t make you play second fiddle to my guitar
like an old man drinkin’ down at the tavern
i was one for the road now we’re headed on back home
