Something in My Life is Missing Lyrics

Had a dollar in his pocket
Tag inside his new used suit
Felt like a Friday Davy Crocket
Never learned to take orders or salute

He’s as thin as his checkbook
But he could pass for a movie star
All the while he had that wrecked look
Best looking man in the whole wide bar

Be my best friend, I ain’t seen him in awhile
Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing him by a mile

Here I slight (??)
A midwestern Shakespeare
In a tiny perfect hand
He tells you so much, you move he just breaks ya
Fall when you decide to land

Meet my best friend, I ain’t seen him in awhile
Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing him by a mile

You sit there in dead silence
You gotta friend who’s real and true
No idle conversation
He wrote a long song just for you (??)

Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing him by a mile

He paints houses for money
He should be paid just to wake up
You imagine ??? together
Getting sick from drinking from the same cup
Love doesn’t always wear a stupid smile

Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing
Something in my life is missing him by a mile

Something in my life is missing him by a mile

    I think I’m hearing “he’s as thin as his checkbook” rather than “He’s as big as his ????” …. I dunno’….my listening skills ain’t what they used to be.

    Like Neil says: “We’d (?) do magic tricks together…”

    “He writes like a Midwestern…”

    1x middle chorus “Something in my life is missing YOU…”

    and sorry to say it: “Faggot Davy Crocket”

    “He doesn’t so much as move you as breaks your fall when you decide to land”

    Great song.

    Yep, others have added these corrections but I agree with:

    – “Felt like a faggot Davey Crockett”
    – “He writes like a Midwestern Shakespeare”
    – ““He doesn’t so much as move you as breaks your fall when you decide to land”
    – “We do magic tricks together”
