Brooks & Dunn – That Ain’t No Way To Go

Twintig jaar geleden behaalde het ondertussen gesplitte duo Brooks & Dunn hun zesde #1-hit met That Ain’t No Way To Go. En nadien zouden er nog zo’n 20 #1-hits bijkomen.

Songtekst :

Lipstick letters across the mirror this morning
Said, “Goodbye, baby.” You left with no warning
Like a thief in the night, you ran away with my heart
I can’t believe my eyes, must be a bad dream
You always said we had a good thing
You never once let on we were falling apart

That ain’t no way to go. Girl, it just ain’t right
Don’t you think that I deserve to hear you say goodbye
That ain’t no way to go. Was it all a lie
After all this time, that ain’t no way to go

Getting nowhere, I’m tired of thinking
Guess I’ll do a little wishful dreaming
And make a whiskey wish upon a star
Train whistle blowing down the tracks
Lonesome sound says she ain’t coming back
It’s such a cold blow from out of the dark

That ain’t no way to go. Girl, it just ain’t right
Don’t you think that I deserve to hear you say goodbye
That ain’t no way to go. Was it all a lie
After all this time, that ain’t no way to go
