Next Chance I Get
(Janet McLaughlin/Rachel Garlin)

Hey y'all, it sure is good
To see you tonight
I woke up with a bear of a headache
And I'm just now feeling alright

Next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking
Sitting here at the bar, you know
That's what I'm thinking
Today's too late
The sun's already sinking
But the next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking

Put another parking lot dent
In my back right fender chrome
Which one of you girls saw me do that
And drove my drunk ass home

Next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking
Sitting here at the bar, you know
That's what I'm thinking
Today's too late
The sun's already sinking
But the next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking

What do you do
When it's
Quarter to two
And you're
Out having fun
And the girls'
Got a bottle of rum

Well, I'm telling you
You just gotta think to yourself

Next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking
Yea, sitting here, right now, here at this bar
That's what I'm thinking
Today's too late
The sun's already sinking
But the next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking

Yea, today's too late
The sun's already sinking
But the next chance I get
I'm gonna stop drinking

I had as much fun writing this song with Rachel Garlin as I have each and every time I play it.

Special thanks to the Next Chance Choir:
Rachel Williams, Bonnie Baker, Kim Copeland and Mary Ann Kennedy.
