FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE BUT NOT FOR LONG (Eddie Miller / Eddie Noack) George Jones - 1969 It's not the love and honour, it's that promise to obey That makes me think by marryin' we might be doin' wrong And until death do you part just seems to choke me up to say My love's for better or for worse, but not for long Because the season soon will start in Hialeah Every year I like to see the horses run And if I lose it's just a short trip to Miami Where a beach bum always finds 'em when it's fun Well I was a hopin' our relationship could stay the way it's been And I'd feel guilty if I tried to put you on You seem to want more than the understanding woo we made a way back when For better or for worse, but not for long Well if it's any comfort, when I leave it won't be someone else To turn my head and make me leave you far behind Your competition is the wanderlust and follow it somehow I must You kept my heart content but not my mind Well you might see me on a newscast from Sun Valley I hear the skiing's fine there in July Or I might just top the rocks on the next spaceship 'Cause they tell me it's the only way to fly So no matter what the postmark reads from Tahoe to Tangiers I'm where it's happening and that's where I belong And I really mean the note "I'm having fun, wish you were here" For better or for worse, but not for long Well my love, better or for worse, but not for long (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2012)
