THANKS FOR INVITING ME TO LEAVE
© 2018 Richard Bruce Eells (BMI)

I’m here for your daughter we’re going out on a date
She slipped me a note in class to pick her up at eight
I put on my best jeans and I tied back my hair
But now that you’ve seen me I guess we’re going nowhere
I get you didn’t like the way I looked and I talked
So I untied my hair, and like a freak flag I walked
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
We’re here in your city just to take in the sights
We pull into a parking lot and walk out towards the lights
Next morning we’re broke and after sleeping (it off) at a hotel
We ain’t got twenty dollars so we take off what the hell
When two of your finest jump in front of our van
They show us the highway sayin’ leave while you can
Thanks For Inviting Us To Leave (4x)
(guitar solo)
Thanks For Inviting Us To Leave (4x)
Now I’m out on the road lookin’ for a place to settle down
Got tired of the cold and the heat and the traffic back in town
I found me a place with some girls and a little work
But when I start to flirt with them you think that I’m a jerk
I get that you don’t like this city boy hangin’ round
I’m just a two-bit stranger in this one-horse town
Thanks For Inviting Us To Leave (4x)
I’m just a square peg tryin’ to fit in a round hole
But if I ever lost my edges where would I roll?
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
Thanks For Inviting Me To Leave
