In A Couple Of Days

  • Two weeks notice would've been real nice
    I could've put this broken heart on ice
    Barely full of whiskey, all laid up in bed
    Givin' up on what lies ahead

    Could've quit my job and let my beard grow out
    Another sad old story that you hear about
    But I got nothin' from you
    Came without a warning at all

    It was hot and dry when you told me goodbye
    Now isn't that a hell of a deal
    Right out of the blue, you broke it in two
    Now you wanna know how I feel

    Why don't you come around when the swellin' goes down
    Right now I'm doin' okay
    Hit me back
    I should know something in a couple of days

    It ain't sunk in yet but I know that old pain
    It will come like the storm once it starts to rain
    Right now the sky is just a couple of clouds
    But it's gonna be hell once the bottom falls out

    I might head for shelter, I might run and hide
    I might take my chances standin' outside
    It's too early to tell
    Hell, you just left me today

    It was hot and dry when you told me goodbye
    Now isn't that a hell of a deal
    Right out of the blue, you broke it in two
    And now you wanna know how I feel

    Why don't you come around when the swellin' goes down
    Right now I'm doin' okay
    Hit me back
    I should know something in a couple of days

    Why don't you come around when the swellin' goes down
    Right now I'm doin' okay
    Hit me back
    I should know something in a couple of days

    Girl, hit me back
    I should know something in a couple of days Writer/s: BOBBY PINSON, TOBY KEITH
