Worse Things
© 2010 Nelson Wright

I could be in Bowling Green drinking dirty water,
I could be a’sleeping on a cold hard floor,
I could be in Los Angeles looking for love,
I could be in Amarillo looking to score.

My situation could be adverse,
But nothing could be worse,
Than being anywhere with you.

I could be in Nazareth looking for direction,
I could be a’living on biscuits and beans,
I could be abandoned out on Jericho’s plains,
I could be commuting on the 6:19.

My tribulations could be diverse,
But nothing could be worse,
Than being anywhere with you.

I could be in Kennicott singing on the street,
Maybe playing Rocky Top for tips,
I could be dwelling on Gypsy Rose Lee,
I could be dwelling on your sweet, sweet lips.

I could wake up south of the border to the sound of a steel guitar,
I could find your number on a matchbook in a telephone booth in a bar,
I could catch the scent your perfume on a dark and lonely street,
I could follow your shadow down the alley as it fades into the heat.

There are worse things than wanting you baby,
Worse than lonely nights to get through,
Worse than what life can throw at me,
Like being anywhere with,
Like doing anything with,
Like spending any time with you.

I could be busted up in New York City,
I could be broken down in Baton Rouge,
I could be luckless out in Los Vegas,
Or homeless on the streets of Malibu.

The implications could be perverse,
But nothing could be worse,
Than being anywhere with you.
