Boots

  • I woke up in my boots this mornin'
    Fell asleep in my boots last night
    Had a feeling that I'd run out of warnings
    Girl, I couldn't have been more right

    My only suitcase
    It's by the front door
    That look on your face
    Says you don't want me no more
    There's no use in talkin'
    This time you mean it
    You're sendin' me walkin'
    Well, what a convenience

    'Cause, I woke up in my boots this mornin'
    Fell asleep in my boots last night
    Had a feeling that I'd run out of warnings
    Girl, I couldn't have been more right

    And I knew I wouldn't have to take the time
    Puttin' 'em back on when I'm sober
    Yeah, I knew you'd be pissed off over me
    And I'd just be hungover
    Girl, I knew I'd open my eyes
    In a house fit for a dog
    Knew I'd need 'em come the daylight
    So I didn't even take 'em off, naw

    I woke up in my boots this mornin'

    Yeah, we were past the point of fightin'
    There'd be a curb you'd kick me to
    I made it easy on me girl
    But I made it easier on you
    Can't hide the truth yeah
    We both knew that it was comin'
    So, I woke up in my boots this mornin'

    I woke up in my boots this mornin'

    I woke up in my boots this mornin'
    'Cause I went out and got drunk last night
    Had a feeling that I'd run out of warnings
    So I said, "What the hell," and kissed us goodbye

    And I knew I wouldn't have to take the time
    Puttin' 'em back on when I'm sober
    Yeah, I knew you'd be pissed off over me
    And I'd just be hungover
    Girl, I knew I'd open my eyes
    In a house fit for a dog
    Knew I'd need 'em come the daylight
    So I didn't even take 'em off, no
    No, I didn't even take 'em off, yeah

    I woke up in my boots this mornin'
    Yeah
    I woke up in my boots this mornin' Writer/s: David Garcia, Hillary Lindsey, Michael Hardy
