I Wish You Wouldn't Leave
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I should have loved you better; I guess I could have if I'd tried
I wish I'd been home more; I wish I hadn't lied
I should've paid you more attention; there's lots of things I wish I'd done
But, oh, Lord, I wish you wouldn't leave

CHORUS
I've been wishin' in a wishin' well a penny at a time
I bet I've spent a thousand dollars goin' out of my mind

VERSE
I could've been a better daddy; I should've been a better man
I wish I'd coached their Little League and built 'em castles in the sand
I should've listened to their pleading eyes; I wish I'd realized
But, oh, Lord, I wish you wouldn't leave

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
I should've gone to church with you
I could've prayed by your side
I wish I had taken the time to keep you satisfied
I wish I may, I wish I might keep you here tonight
And, oh, Lord, I wish you wouldn't leave

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Babe, I got a new job today; I'll be home every night
And with my next twelve steps I'm gonna get it right
Now there's just one more thing I need you to know
With all my heart, I wish you wouldn't leave
