Lyrics

VERSE 1
I'M SITTIN' HERE SIPPIN' ON A SASPARILLA
AND WISHIN' I WERE WITH YOU
SPENT THE NIGHT WASTIN' TEARS UPON MY PILLA'
NOW THAT WE ARE THROUGH
MY FRIENDS ALL HAVE ADVICE
JUST TRYIN' TO BE NICE
BUT I KNOW THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE
SO I'M SITTIN' HERE SIPPIN' ON A SASPARILLA
AND WISHIN' I WERE WITH YOU

VERSE 2
I'M SITTIN' HERE THINKIN' THAT MY FRONT PORCH SWING
SEEMS A BIT TOO WIDE
MISSIN' ALL THE MEMORIES THAT IT USED TO BRING
WHEN YOU WERE BY MY SIDE
THE BIRDS ARE SINGIN' SONGS
BUT THEY'VE ALL GOT IT WRONG
IT OUGHTA BE A MINOR TUNE
OH, I'M SITTIN' HERE SWINGIN' ON MY FRONT PORCH SWING
AND WISHIN' I WERE WITH YOU

BRIDGE
YOU WERE EVERYTHING I'VE BEEN LOOKIN' FOR
YOU WERE THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYER
YOU WRAPPED MY HEART IN CLOVER
NOW I'LL HAVE TO START ALL OVER
KNOWIN' THAT NONE'LL COMPARE

VERSE 3
I'M SITTIN' HERE SIPPIN' ON A SASPARILLA
AND WISHIN' I WERE WITH YOU
SHARIN' WOES AND WORRIES WITH THE WEEPIN' WILLA
A LOYAL FRIEND AND TRUE
EACH TIME I START TO THINKIN'
I ALWAYS START TO DRINKIN'
AND THAT MAKES ME TWICE AS BLUE
THAT'S WHY I'M SITTIN' HERE SIPPIN' ON A SASPARILLA
AND WISHIN' I WERE WITH YOU

SOLO

VERSE 3
I'M SITTIN' HERE SIPPIN' ON A SASPARILLA
AND WISHIN' I WERE WITH YOU
SHARIN' WOES AND WORRIES WITH THE WEEPIN' WILLA
A LOYAL FRIEND AND TRUE
EACH TIME I START TO THINKIN'
I ALWAYS START TO DRINKIN'
AND THAT MAKES ME TWICE AS BLUE
THAT'S WHY I'M SITTIN' HERE SIPPIN' ON A SASPARILLA
AND WISHIN' THAT I WERE WITH YOU
I JUST WISH
THAT YOU MISSED ME TOO
