Song Meaning
Verse 1
I asked her to marry me

She looked like she wasn't quite sure
I felt I had to sweeten the deal

I said but wait there's more
Verse 2
You get six tomato vines and three apple trees

Two hunting dogs with an assortment of fleas

A Mr. Fix-it with a garage full of tools

You get everybody's friend but nobody's fool

You get a wooden ship clock that stopped telling time
A two-dollar bill and a Liberty dime
Season tickets to our minor league team

You get a full-time dreamer of the American Dream
Verse 3
But wait there's more 

There's a lifetime of treasures waiting in store
When we take our vow to love, honor and adore
But wait there's more
Verse 4
You get a shifter knob that was an old beer tap
Matching T-shirts and a NASCAR cap

A belt buckle from 1976
You get a box full of hopes and a bag full of tricks

You get a backyard grill and a front-porch swing

Some brass wind chimes and my grandma's ring

You get a man who's not afraid to kneel down and pray
You get someone who'll listen to every word you say
Verse 5
But wait there's more
There's a lifetime of treasures waiting in store
When we take our vow to love, honor and adore
But wait there's more
Verse 6
If you act now I'll throw in my lifetime guarantee

I'll double my love for you right through eternity

She just looked at me and smiled but I was a man going wild
I said but wait there's more
Verse 7
You get two arms that'll hold you every day, every night
A pledge to try to always do what's right

A heart that swears it only beats for you

You get a love that promises to always be true
Verse 8
But wait there's more
There's a lifetime of treasures waiting in store
When we take our vow to love, honor and adore
But wait there's more
Then just a lifetime of treasures waiting in store
In this life we share as we love, honor and adore
But wait there's more
Verse 9
You get an AM radio from a '52 Ford
Some Ginsu knives and a samurai sword
And every George Strait, Vince Gill CD
Did I mention you get all of me?
Verse 10
There's the six tomato vines, the apple trees
Two hunting dogs and all their fleas
The shifter knob for a four on the floor
You get all of my love

But wait there's more
