Joe NicholsJust A Little More

Sittin' at a poker table holdin' kings and threes So far lady luck, hmm, sure has been good to me I should quit while I'm ahead, but I'll hang around instead And the dealer asked: What would you settle for? And I said: Just a little more I need just a little more A little more than I've got And I've got all that I can spend and I can't spend it fast enough But if the truth be known, I can't quit on my own And I spent all my life waitin' for just a little more Havin' a drink here on my favorite stool I know that a couple has turned into a few And the bartender says to me: Son, I think it's time you leave If you don't mind headin' for the door But I ask: For just a little more I need just a little more, a little more than I've had And I've had all that a man should and I should leave and not come back But if the truth be known I can't quit on my own And I spent all my life waitin' for just a little more Too many late nights and all of the above You've tried to help me for so long But you finally had enough And you tell me that you're gonna leave As you're holding on to me But before you let me go, hold me just a little more I need just a little more A little more time Time for me to end all these hurtin' ways of mine And Lord, I know you give me all the strength that I need But I'm down here on my knees prayin' for Just a little more Just a little more
