lyrics

I never cared much for dancing I came here to watch the band play
That’s the third time she’s asked me and the third time I’ve turned her away
For a beauty like her another partner won’t be hard to find
I turned back to my beer cursed my stubbornness one more time

And the reasons I’m single, the reasons I’m still on my own
I spend my nights running when no one is waiting at home
I haven’t had much luck finding that someone that I can call mine
But the reasons I’m single ain’t reason enough to quit trying

Raising someone else’s babies and settling down ain’t my style
I’ve given up on finding true love in the grocery store aisle
I won’t find one in church well the preaching don’t suit me you see
The conversations I have with the lord stay between him and me

And the reasons I’m single, the reasons I’m still on my own
I spend my nights running when no one is waiting at home
I haven’t had much luck finding that someone that I can call mine
But the reasons I’m single ain’t reason enough to quit trying

I never cared much for money, I make enough to get by I guess
I seen too many folks spend their whole life chained to a desk
I don’t have much to offer in the way of material things
Unless you can find value in these broken down songs that I sing

And the reasons I’m single, the reasons I’m still on my own
I spend my nights running when no one is waiting at home
I haven’t had much luck finding that someone that I can call mine
But the reasons I’m single ain’t reason enough to quit trying
