  • Well I love her
    But I love to fish
    I spend all day out on this lake
    And hell is all I catch
    Today she met me at the door
    Said I would have to choose
    If I hit that fishin' hole today
    She'd be packin' all her things
    And she'd be gone by noon

    Well I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home
    But right now I'm on this lakeshore
    And I'm sittin' in the sun
    I'm sure it'll hit me
    When I walk through that door tonight
    But I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite

    Now there's a chance that if I hurry
    I could beg her to stay
    But that water's right
    And the weather's perfect
    No tellin' what I might catch today

    Well I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home
    But right now I'm on this lakeshore
    And I'm sittin' in the sun
    I'm sure it'll hit me
    When I walk through that door tonight
    That I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite

    Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Megan from Stevenson, AlThis song is great! Love it:)
  • Camille from Toronto, OhI believe Brad made the comment that as a songwriter, he sent this along to top recording artists and immediately both Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks wanted to record it. Brad decided to record it himself and the rest is history. He brought it to life. It is a fabulous song & perfect video. Just the perfect amount of humor. You have to chuckle every time you hear it, the first time in the song he sings, "I'mmmmm gonna miss her.......:
