If I Could

If I left right now, and I drove straight through, I could be there by Sunday.

I would show up in my pick up truck and throw your stuff in the bed.

You'd be there with your long brown hair, blue eyes, and pretty smile.

You'd hold me tight, you'd let me sleep all night, but when the morning came

We'd make love, and thank God above, for sending me your way

After that we'd go to leave and all your shit is gone

I should've waited until we were ready to leave before I threw it all back there

If I could, I'd replace it all, every last sock and shoe

Screw you too, just stay here, I don't know what I was thinking

With the price of gas, you're one expensive piece of ass, and now I've got to go

If I could, do it all over, I wouldn't have done it at all

You want me so let's just let that be, it's a happy enough ending for me

That's the closest I've ever come to writing a country song. It started out being a sincere poem, but my humor can't seem to take a back seat to romance or politics or even personal safety. If the opportunity presents itself, I take it. It's a sickness! I'm putting on my flak jacket immediately after I post this!

No need for a flak jacket. You're hilarious.

"If I could do it all over, I wouldn't have done it at all" is a great line, fantastic, actually.

I'm thinking of adopting it as my new motto.

heart, It's all yours! Run with it. Thanks for your visit.

I absolutely love every line....especially the one mentioned above.

HOW many times I've thought THAT!

Great job!
