lyrics

I'm gonna buy you a pair of dime store glasses so you can read the letter I wrote
I'm gonna buy you a pair of dime store glasses so you can read the letter I wrote
I'm not gonna tell you what it said
What's rolling around in my head

I'm gonna buy me a pair of dark sunglasses so you can't see my eyes been cryin
I'm gonna buy me a pair of dark sunglasses so you can't see my eyes been cryin
Oh, how i feel
This pain is so real

I'm gonna dust off my old brandy glasses, pour myself a stiff cocktail
I'm gonna dust off my old brandy glasses, pour myself a stiff cocktail
Put on some old southern blues
Gonna dance around in my shoes

I'm gonna buy you a one way ticket to Memphis, you go tell them all what you did
I'm gonna buy you a one way ticket to Memphis, you go tell them all what you did
I'm putting on those southern blues
Gonna dance around in my shoes
Cause I'm so lonely living with you I'd rather be living alone
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
