A Dozen Roses and a Six-Pack

Album: Cole Swindell (2014)
  • There's that flower shop on Main.
    Lord it's been too long since it's seen my face.
    I probably should've stopped by yesterday.
    Just a few miles from our house.
    There's a neon sign flashing "coldest beer in town."
    Is she gone for good, well it's hard to say
    But I'm going to be ready either way.

    I got a dozen roses if she comes back home
    One for every time I left her lonely waiting on me
    Why did it take so long to see?
    And this six pack might not be enough
    But it's a damn good start if we're ending us.
    We'll either work it out or we won't.
    But I got a dozen roses if she comes back home, and a six pack if she don't.

    I'm prayin' love will bring her back
    Oh, just one more chance that's all I'll ever ask
    I sure hope she ain't a memory yet.
    But she left her book there on the bed
    Would a woman leave a man like that?

    I got a dozen roses if she comes back home
    One for every time I left her lonely waiting on me
    Why did it take so long to see?
    And this six pack might not be enough
    But it's a damn good start if we're ending us.
    We'll either work it out or we won't.
    But I got a dozen roses if she comes back home, and a six pack if she don't.

    Is she gone for good, well it's hard to say.
    But I'm going to be ready either way.
    I got a dozen roses if she comes back home
    One for every time I left her lonely waitin' on me, baby
    Why'd it take so long to see?
    And this six pack might not be enough
    But it's a damn good start if we're ending us.
    We'll either work it out or we won't.
    But I got a dozen roses if she comes back home
    Yeah I got this dozen roses in case she comes back home
    And a six pack if she don't.
    And a six pack if she don't.
