Title: The Good Stuff
Written By:  Craig Wiseman/Jim Collins 

G D/F# Em D C C

     G                      D/F#
Well me and my lady had our first big fight
     Em                          D
So I drove around 'til I saw the neon lights
     C                  C/B                     Am7
Of a corner bar, and it just seemed right, so I pulled up
      G                   D/F# 
Not a soul around but the ol' barkeep
Em                     D
Down at the end lookin half asleep
    C                     C/B                       Am7
But he walked up and said what'll it be, I said the good stuff
C/B   C                           D           C                 D 
   He didn't reach around for the whiskey, He didn't pour me a beer,  
    C                     D 
His blue eyes kinda went misty,  
He said you can't find that here

/F#            G                    D/F# 
Cause it's the first long kiss on a second date 
Em                           G 
Mamma's all worried when you get home late 
    C                          C/B 
And droppin the ring in the spaghetti plate,  
           Am        C/B        C     D 
Cause your hands are shaking so much 
             G                   D/F# 
And it's the way she looks with rice in her hair 
Em                      G
Eatin burnt suppers the whole first year 
     C                    C/B                  Am  C/B  C
And askin for seconds, to keep her from tearin up, 
     D              G      D/F#  C C 
Yeah man that's the good stuff 

He grabbed a carton of milk and he poured a glass 
I smiled and said I'll have some of that 
We sat there and talked as an hour passed like ol' friends 
Saw a black and white picture and it caught my stare 
Was a pretty girl with bouffant hair 
He said that's my Bonnie, takin bout a year after we wed 
He said I spent five years in the bottle when the cancer took her from me 
I've been sober three years now,  
          Am         C/B              C     D 
Cause the one thing stronger than the whiskey, It was... 
The sight of her holdn our baby girl
The way she adored that string of pearls
I gave her the day that our youngest boy Earl
Married his high school love
And it's a new T-shirt sayin I'm a Grandpa
Being right there as our time got small
And holding her hand, when the good lord called her up
                    G      D/F#   C~~>
Yeah man that's the good stuff

~~> C G D/F# C C

        D                         G 
He said when you get home she'll start to cry 
      D                      G 
When she says I'm sorry, say so am I 
    G      D/F#     Em      D       C 
And look into those eyes so deep in love  
And drink it up 
                 G      D/F#   C C 
Cause that's the good stuff 
           G      D/F#   C C C~~~
That's the good stuff
