I've Had a Beautiful Time
Merle Haggard

I've Had a Beautiful Time

We met downtown in the barroom
Both of us needing a friend
You brought me home to your doorstep
It was there you invited me in

We spent the wee hours dancing
To your favorite home stereo sounds
We talked about what we been needing
Discussing our ups and our downs

And I've had a beautiful time
Holding your heart next to mine
I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
And I've had a beautiful time

If I seem a wee bit uneasy
You really sized me up right
There's somebody home still up waiting
Probably been waiting up all night

I can't say I found any answers
But you listen while I rattle on
And you little beautiful lady
And you kept me from being alone
