TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Quit While I’m Ahead

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Quit While I’m Ahead Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Well I wont lie and say I didn’t think the good ones all were taken
Since there ain’t no peaches falling from the tree that I’ve been shaking
And it’s solitary sleeping in this bed that I’ve been making
Well maybe I should quit while I’m ahead

Well my intent was being handed I never laid a hand
And the kindness of my gesture was a good far cry from grand
They were awful well intended, they were all that I can stand
Ah maybe I should quit while I’m ahead

And now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you really did
Well darlin if I called you could you just pick up the phone
Lord, I’ve been dancing with damnation and I’m drinking all alone
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and ’bout halfway to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while I’m ahead, oh Lord, well maybe I should quit while I’m ahead

Well West Texas in the morning, little darling are you down
Where the color of the country is your sweet eye shade of brown
And if I told you how I felt, well you’d say boy get out of town
Well maybe I should quit while I’m ahead

Now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you really did
Well darlin if I called you would you even talk to me
When I am lit up like a star atop your favorite Christmas tree
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and ’bout half way to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while I’m ahead, oh Lord well maybe I should quit while I’m ahead

Now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you really did
Well darlin if I called you could you just pick up the phone
Lord, I’ve been dancing with damnation and I’m drinking all alone
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and ’bout half way to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while I’m ahead, oh lord well maybe I should quit while I’m ahead
