It's Been A Great Afternoon Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Last night we had a hell raisin' time
Nippin' on tequila and suckin' on limes
Sunrise chased the good time away
And good morning would have been the wrong thing to say

'Cause there is poundin' in the top of my head
Hey, didn't leave me any too soon
I can't say we've had a good morning
But babe it's been a great afternoon

Well, you nursed me through the morning while I was really down
Then one rowdy afternooner got me up and around
Yes, last night we had one hell raisin' time
But today won't be forgotten too soon
I can't say we've had a good morning
Oh, but babe it's been a great afternoon, yes sir

Well, you nursed me through the morning while I was really down
Then one rowdy afternooner got me up and around
Yes, last night we had one hell raisin' time
But today won't be forgotten too soon
I can't say we've had a good morning
But dang it's been a great afternoon
