You Took The Best Part Of Me

Written By: Steve Kohrherr

You Took The Best Part Of Me

I woke up this morning
The sun was beating down
I saw a letter on the kitchen table
But you were not around

And when I realize
That my pick-up truck was gone
I knew that you had left me
Now I’m a man and I’m alone

You took the best part of me
Why didn’t you take the damn color tv
My driveway is empty and my friends can plainly see
That you took the best part of me

You said you felt neglected
I thought everything was fine
Should’ve spent more time being with you
Instead of giving the chrome a shine

Losing you, Sweetheart,
Is a bit of ol’ bad luck
But you can stay at your mom’s as long as you like
Just bring back my pick-up truck

You took the best part of me
I’m asking you, Darling “Please” on my knee
My driveway is empty and my friends can plainly see
That you took the best part of me

Now I guess I’ve learned my lesson
And next time I’ll get it right
A little less golf in the afternoon
A little less poker at night

I’ll swear off some of that drinking
And be the man I ought to be
But you can be damn sure I’m locking that truck
And hiding away the key

You took the best part of me
I’m installing extra outside security
My driveway is empty and my friends can plainly see
That you took the best part of me
Yeah you took the best part of me.
