Next to You, Next to Me

Album: Changed Deluxe Edition (2012)
  • Next to you, next to me
    Next to you, next to me
    Next to you, next to me
    Baby, next to you, next to me

    Ridin' down the road in my pick-up truck
    Ya' better be ready 'cause I'm pickin' you up
    With a full moon shinin' and a little bit a' luck
    We'll run outta gas and maybe get stuck

    We can get lost, baby, I don't care
    I ain't worried as long as you're there
    Ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me

    Barbecue chicken in aluminum foil
    Just enough money for my gas and oil
    Who needs your shrimp and your caviar?
    I'd sooner have you just the way you are

    Rich people got their money to hold
    Mansion on the hill with diamonds and gold
    Can't compare as far as I can see
    Next to you sittin' next to me
    Ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me

    Radio playin' our favorite song
    Well, I'll change the station if the news comes on
    The signal ain't comin' in too strong
    Make our own music, honey, all night long

    If the Good Lord's willin' when we're old and gray
    The kids are grown up and moved away
    We'll be rockin' there side by side
    With a barbeque chicken and the TV guide

    Well, there ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me
    Ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me
    Ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me

    Next to you, next to me
    Next to you, next to me
    Next to you, next to me
    As long as you're next to me, baby

    Next to you, oh sittin' next to me
    I'd sooner have you just the way you are
    Aw, there ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me

    And if the Good Lord's willin' when we're old and gray
    The kids are grown up and moved away
    We'll be rockin' there side by side
    With a barbecue chicken and the TV guide
    Oh, yeah
    There ain't no place that I'd rather be
    Next to you sittin' next to me Writer/s: CURTIS WRIGHT, ROBERT ELLIS ORRALL
