GOTTA GET GOIN'
 

Written by: Marie Siemens & Richard Ford

 

V:

She comes screechin' to a stop

Underneath that ole' hemlock

Slams the door an' stomps up on the porch

Blarin' in like a hurricane

Thru the tired ole trailer door

Throwin' her shoes n' apron on the grimy floor

 

PC:

Pants undone and sluggin' beer, he's watchin' ESPN

She says "Hon, you're outta here - ya lazy has-been!"

 

C: 

Best ya know ya gotta get goin'

Cuz you've done wore my patience all too thin

So I guess it best that you be knowin'

You're playin' a game you just can't win

An' I'm sayin' you're needin ta know

Ya gotta get goin'

 

V:

Now he's saddled on a stool

In a smoky ole' bar room

Lookin' for love; didn't have to look too far

He couldn't help but have his eye

Set right on this beauty all night

She was cute an boot-scootin' cross the floor

 

PC:

From behind he felt her man breathin' down his neck

Sayin "what the heck?"

 

C:

Best ya know, ya gotta get goin'

Cuz you've done wore my patience all too thin

So, I guess it best that you be knowin'

You're playin' a game you just can't win

An' I'm sayin' you're needin' ta know...

Ya gotta get goin'

 

Bridge:

There an' then his conscience kicked in

An as he walked away

He was heard to say

 

Chorus out:

‘Best I know, I’ve gotta get goin'

Cuz I done wore em' patience all too thin

So, I guess it best that I be knowin'

I’m playin' a game I just can't win

An I’m sayin' I’m needin' ta know...

I’ve gotta get goin'

‘GOTTA GET GOIN’ Backstory:
 

This song is about knowing where you are not welcomed anymore.
 

Like being kicked out of a bad relationship or flirting with someone else’s woman.

Time to hit-the-road.
