Kristofferson

Album: Let It Go (2007)
  • I just walked in and you were gone
    To your mama's I suppose
    It looks like you won't be back, so I thought you'd ought to know
    I found that note you left today
    It only took you half a page
    I'm gonna grab my old guitar, take a pencil from the jar, fill in the empty space

    [Chorus:]
    I'm gonna tell you how I feel, straight-up genuine and real
    Open a bottle of ninety-proof and write a song for you
    Like Kristofferson would do

    In each line you're gonna hear "it's my fault" and "I miss you"
    I know it won't be in time, it may not even rhyme
    But all it has to be is true

    I'm gonna tell you how I feel, straight-up genuine and real
    Open a bottle of ninety-proof and write a song for you
    Like Kristofferson would do

    I'm gonna tell you how I feel, straight-up genuine and real
    Open a bottle of ninety-proof and write a song for you
    Like Kristofferson would do

    I'm gonna drink this bottle of ninety-proof and sing this song for you
    Like Kristofferson would do Writer/s: AIMEE MAYO, BRETT JAMES, CHRISTOPHER MARSH LINDSEY, TROY VERGES

  • Rick from Jefferson City, MoThis song sounds so much like something George Jones would have done it's not even FUNNY! Sounds like something you'd hear coming from a Wirlitzer Jukebox in a smoke filled bar room.
    Can't wait to learn to play this on an old guitar!
