The Good Stuff
Kenny Chesney Lyrics


Well, me and my lady had our first big fight
So I drove around 'til I saw the neon lights
Of a corner bar and it just seemed right so I pulled up
Not a soul around but the old bar keep
Down at the end lookin' half asleep
But he walked up and said, "What'll it be?"
I said, "The good stuff"
He didn't reach around for the Whiskey
He didn't pour me a Beer
His blue eyes kinda went misty
He said, "You can't find that here"

'Cause it's the first long kiss on a second date
Momma's all worried when you get home late
And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate
'Cause you're hands are shakin' so much
And it's the way that she looks with the rice in her hair
Eatin' burnt suppers the whole first year
And askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up
Yeah man, that's the good stuff

He grabbed a carton of milk and he poured a glass
And I smiled and said, "I'll have some of that"
We sat there and talked as an hour passed like old friends
I saw a black and white picture and it caught my stare
It was a pretty girl with bouffant hair
He said, "That's my Bonnie, taken 'bout a year after we wed"
He said, "I spent five years in the bar when the cancer took her from me"
"But I've been sober three years now"
"'Cause the one thing's stronger than the Whiskey"

Was the sight of her holdin' my baby girl
The way she adored that string of pearls
I gave her the day that our youngest boy Earl
Married his high school love
And it's a new t-shirt sayin' I'm a grandpa
Bein' right there as our time got small
And holdin' her hand when good the Lord called her up
Yeah man that's the good stuff

He said, "When you get home she'll start to cry"
"When she says, I'm sorry, say so am I"
"Look into those eyes so deep in love and drink it up"
"'Cause that's the good stuff"

That's the good stuff

I work in a retail bicycle store. Today, I had an elderly man come in to the store. After visiting about bikes, he showed me a picture of his wife, when she was young. Believe it or not, she had bouffant hair. He then showed me a pic of her at 72, one of the last pics before she died of ALS. This song was playing in my head the whole time he told me about his love for her.
I won't be able to ever hear it again without tearing up.
