Too Drunk To Call

Too Drunk To Call

Darlin’ I know it was a mistake
Going out least night
I had a few too many
Jack, Jim and Jose weren’t my friends
I shouldn’t have called you as the sun was coming up
I just wanted to tell you I love you
Let you know that I was thinking about you
Wishing you were in my arms
I knew I shouldn’t have gone to that saloon
I knew I should have only had a beer
I could hardly walk but I thought of you
God, why weren’t you here with me
Jack, Jim and Jose gave me the nerve
I was calling to ask you to be my wife
I had it rehearsed in my mind
My heart had written the words so long ago
Still I had a few too many
I shouldn’t have called you as the sun was coming up
I should have waited
I should have let some time pass
Then maybe you would have said yes
Maybe I would be able to love you for the rest of my life
Maybe…just maybe
I would be able to remember your name
