Lyrics

It’s Gotta Be Me
by James H. Turner

Old Red and I were just sitting on the porch
He barks at the fireflies around the old horse
I’m missing your laugh and those cut-off shorts
The sunset without you is lonely, of course

Honey I’ve been thinking about you and me
After watching your taillights go down the 53
It’s lonely in the country when it’s only me
I know we have a problem, I don’t disagree

Can you see?
Can you see?
Can you see?

(The problems) Gotta be me
It’s gotta be me
(You know) It’s gotta be me
It’s gotta be me

I’m driving down the road just as fast as can be
Hoping to catch my girl before she goes free
I pushed her too far, I’m stupid maybe
Worried she might want a life without me

Can you see?
Can you see?
Can you see?

(The problems) Gotta be me
(Yeah) It’s gotta be me
It’s gotta be me
(You Know) It’s gotta be me

My tires are smoking
My hands are shaking
The dogs as white as a ghost
‘Cause baby, baby
My loves not crazy
I’m the one who loves you the most
Oh yeah, I’m the one who loves you the most

I’m heading out to find you to make my apology
Thinking of your smile and how your kiss would be
I might not be the smartest fish in the sea
But I truly do love and want you with me

Can you see?
Can you see?
Can you see?

(The problems) Gotta be me
It’s gotta be me
(You know) It’s gotta be me
(I said) It’s gotta be me
Just love me and see
Please don’t leave me
‘Cause it’s gotta be me!
