Patty Loveless — Next In Line lyrics

See him there at the table
Watch him tear at the label
From the bottle that he just drank dry
And in his mind there's a burning
It took a long time but he's learning
And just look at the teardrops he's cried.

Chorus:
Everybody know's I love him
But his mind is on another
And just look at what she's done to his pride
And if he should change his mind
Give up the music and the wine
I'll be standing by to be the next in line.

I know his favorite song so well
And he's happy I can tell
Just as long as he can hear the jukebox play
So I'll keep playing it light I'll spend every dime I have
To keep him happy in my own kind of way.

Chorus:
Everybody know's I love him
But his mind is on another
And just look at what she's done to his pride
And if he should change his mind
Give up the music and the wine
I'll be standing by to be the next in line
Yes I'll be standing by to be the next in line.
