I Didn't Come Here (And I Ain't Leavin') Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I built a big pile of peanut shells on the sawdust floor
I winked at every pretty girl comin' in and out the door
Yellin', 'Hey bartender, how 'bout two more''
Verse 2
Bottle by bottle I'm clearin' off that shelf
And I feel so good that I'm not quite myself
Now, they're tellin' me that I gotta find someplace else
Well, guess what
Verse 3
I didn't come here and I ain't leavin'
I've been thrown into better places than this
I didn't come here and I ain't leavin'
If you wanna pucker up, I got just the place for you to kiss
Verse 4
Well, I spent my dollar and drank up my last dime
Now, they're actin' like havin' fun is some kind of crime
If it'll make you feel better mister, I'll tell you one more time
Verse 5
I didn't come here and I ain't leavin'
I've been thrown into better places than this
I didn't come here and I ain't leavin'
Why don't you pucker up, I got just the place for you to kiss
Verse 6
Now, you can call me a taxi
And you can call me a cab
I know you're gonna call me something
When I can't pay this tab
Verse 7
I didn't come here and I ain't leavin'
I've been thrown into better places than this
I didn't come here and I ain't leavin'
If you wanna pucker up, I got just the place for you to kiss
Why don't you pucker up, I got just the place for you to kiss
