Gene Watson

Gene Watson - Three

rate me

The day that we were married

The people shook my hand

They said we two were now as one

And me a lucky man.

From that day on that's all I ever

Wanted us to be

Until the day you told me

We'd be three.

Then we began the waiting

And made our little jokes

You couldn't look at monkeys

And I gave up my smokes.

You prophasized he'd be a boy

And look a lot like me

Lord, but I was proud

That we'd be three.

One night the endless days of waiting

All came to an end

You woke me from my restless sleep

And said we must go in.

The sun won't rise on any day

Again like that for me

The day had come when

Two would soon be three.

I smoked an endless burning chain

Of bitter cigarettes

I must have walked a thousand miles

With fear in every step.

Two long days and two long nights

That I refused to sleep

And they were losing hope

That we'd be three.

The preacher's came, the doctor's came

And said I must be brave

I remember saying

It was more than I could take.

Now what's the world to do with

Any crazy man like me

A lonely one who wanted

To be three...
