SWEET BY AND BY (103)

She listened to Kris Kristofferson
And her spaghetti strap fell down
She tapped her finger on the steering wheel
As we drove into town
We had some poblanos
And a couple rounds of brew
How could we bring ourselves to what neither one of us could do

But in the sweet by and by
You can’t say I didn’t try

We drove on back to her place
She said her man’d be home soon
I tried to sing her my soliloquy
And fly her to the moon
So she lay down on the floor
And said honey lock the door
I just stood there helpless

But in the sweet by and by
You can’t say I didn’t try

Lord it was hot—103
And so was the way she looked at me
She wasn’t perfect no on can be
But Christ almighty—she was perfect for me

So I headed on back home
My woman said don’t you lie
Pick your head off of the ground
And look me in the eye
I said baby sweet baby
The highway’s my alibi
You know I’d rather do anything
Than to let our love die

But in the sweet by and by
You can’t say I didn’t try
