​You Don't Want What I Have

This song is by Robbie Fulks.

Well hello, friend, I almost didn't know you
Since last we met we've drifted different ways
Well I heard you settled down
With your wife up north of town
I'm single again and living right here these days
You're pointing at my and now you're calling
Two more of the same and start the tab
Well sure that might sound good
But I don't think you should
You don't want what I have

Well I'd ask you what's brought you to this bar room
But the desperate look you're wearing says it all
Small words became a fight
And she pushed you hard tonight
And now you're on the edge about to fall
The women here they come on so easy
That young thing sure acts like she needs me bad
But don't look on her lies
With envy in your eyes
You don't want what I have

All I have's a helpless feeling
Of a man slowly sinking down
And these few fellow drunkards for a family
Wish I had back my real one right now
I know the grass is always greener
But from where I sit you can't have it bad
So do yourself a favor
Pack it up and go home
You don't want what I have

Five years gone by but how clear I remember
The last time that I faced my only son
I told him that his love won't change
I thought time would ease the pain
But I can't escape the evil I have done
Well it's last call and they'll soon be locked and shuttered
But right there on the corner stands a cab
So get up like a man
Go back while you still can
Cause you don't want what I have

All I have's a helpless feeling
Of a man slowly sinking down
And these few fellow drunkards for a family
Wish I had back my real one right now
And I know the grass is always greener
But from where I sit you can't have it bad
So do yourself a favor
Pack it up and go home
You don't want what I have

You don't want what I have
