I Had a Beautiful Time Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

We met downtown in the barroom
Both of us needing a friend
And you brought me home to your doorstep
It was there you invited me in

We spent the wee hours dancing
To your favorite home stereo sounds
We talked about what we been needin'
Discussin' our ups and our downs

And I've had a beautiful time
Holding your heart next to mine
I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
And I've had a beautiful time

If I seem a wee bit uneasy
You really sized me up right
There's somebody home still up waiting
She probably been waiting up all night

I can't say I found any answers
But you listened while I rattled on
And you are a beautiful lady
And you kept me from being alone

And I've had a beautiful time
Holding your body next to mine
I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
And I've had a beautiful time

I've had a beautiful time
Holding your heart next to mine
We poured out the feelings and then we poured the wine
And I've had a beautiful time

You poured out the feelings while we poured the wine
And I've had a beautiful time
