Last Thing That I See

I’m not much to pray Monday to Saturday 
And most Sundays, I just tend to rest 
But here’s one I need to send up to my only friend 
It might as well be my last request 

Oh God please take me now I don’t suppose it matters how 
Just make it quick, I’ll count to three 
And God bless this crazy girl with the prettiest eyes in the whole wide world
Let her be the last thing that I see

Twice now the morning sun has sparked my heart to gun 
Down every back road in my brain 
But this time I held her hand so I’ve got to take a stand 
Before my luck goes down the drain 

Oh God please take me now I don’t suppose it matters how 
Just make it quick, I’ll count to three 
And God bless this crazy girl with the prettiest eyes in the whole wide world
Let her be the last thing that I see

Sometimes I wonder why some people never cry 
Seems like my generation’s way 
We fall in love too fast, can’t make these feelings last 
Tomorrow will soon be yesterday 

I will not shed a tear in my domestic beer 
If she don’t call me back tonight 
‘Cuz I know I’m on her mind and she knows she’s on mine 
But one last thing before first light
