Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning

This song is by Chris Stapleton and appears on the album From a Room: Volume 1 (2017).

Original video
Postman delivered
"Past due" bill notice
The alarm clock rang two hours late
The garbage man left all the trash
On the sidewalk
And the hinges fell off of the gate
This morning at breakfast
I spilled all the coffee
And opened the door on my knee

Oh, the last thing I needed
The first thing this morning
Was to have you walk out on me

Last night you came home late
And I knew you'd been drinking
By that old mellow look on your face
I thought, "It don't matter
'Cause it's the holiday season."
And you fill such a big empty space
And I laid down beside you
And I wanted your loving
'Cause your love makes my life complete

Oh, the last thing I needed
The first thing this morning
Was to have you walk out on me

So excuse me for looking
Like my world just ended
And excuse me for looking
Like I just lost my best friend
And excuse me for living
And being forgiving
So just go on if you want to be free

But the last thing I needed
The first thing this morning
Was to have you walk out on me
Oh, the last thing I needed
The first thing this morning
Was to have you walk out on me
