Well, me and my lady had our first big fight So I drove around `till I saw the neon lights Of a corner bar, It just seemed right, So I pulled up Not a soul around but the old barkeep Down at the end and loooking half asleep But he walked up and said what`ll it be? I said the good stuff He didn`t reach around for the whiskey He didn`t pour me a beer His blue eyes kinda went misty He said you can`t find that here `Cause it`s the first long kiss on a second date Momma`s all worried when you get home late And droppin` the ring in the spaghetti plate `cause your hands are shakin` so much And it`s the way that she looks with the rice in her hair Eatin` burnt supper the whole first year And askin` for seconds to keep her from tearin` up Yeah man, that`s the good stuff

He grabbed a carton of milk and he poured a glass And I smiled and said I`ll have some of that We sat there and talked as an hour passed like old friends Saw a black and white picture and he caught my stare It was a pretty girl with bufont hair He said that`s my Bonnie, taken about a year after we wed He said I spent five years in the bottle when the cancer took her from me But I`ve been sober three years now `Cause the one thing stronger than the whiskey Was the sight of her holdin` my baby girl The way she adored that string of pearls I gave her the day that our youngest boy Earl married his high school love It`s a new t-shirt sayin` I`m a grandpa Bein` right there as our time got small And holdin` her hand when The Good Lord called her up Yeah man, that`s the good stuff He said when you get home she`ll start to cry When she says I`m sorry, say so am I And look into those eyes so deep in love And drink it up `Cause that`s the good stuff That`s the good stuff
