Writers: Mark D. Sanders & Neal Thrasher

—–(capo 1st fret)—–

(verse 1)
C
Now it ain’t like me to talk about the way
Bb F
my woman makes me feel
C
But since you asked and I’ve got a minute
Bb F
well gentlemen here’s the deal
Bb F
If I told it’s as good as this or that you might misunderstand
G C
So let me give you all a little idea of what’s it’s better than

(chorus)
F
It’s better than whiskey when you’re cold,
Bb F
Better then your favorite song on the your radio,
F
Better than a feather bed when you’ve been loving all night,
G C
and you’re got to get some rest,
F
Better than punching out on payday,
Bb
And cruise control down the highway,
F
It’s a whole lot better then it used to be,
C F
and it used to be the best,

(verse 2)
C Bb F
Now I’ve seen love that started to fade soon after that first kiss
C A# F
But let me make it clear right now that ain’t the case with this
Bb F
It started out good, started getting better It never has slowed down

(chorus)
F
It’s better than whiskey when you’re cold,
Bb F
Better then your favorite song on the your radio,
F
Better than a feather bed when you’ve been loving all night,
G C
and you’re got to get some rest,
F
Better than punching out on payday,
Bb
And cruise control down the highway,
F
It’s a whole lot better than it used to be,
C F
and it used to be the best,

(bridge)
Bb F
Lordy, lord I love that woman of mine
Bb C
And what we’ve got has got to be one hundred times better than

(chorus)
F
It’s better than whiskey when you’re cold,
Bb F
Better then your favorite song on the your radio,
F
Better than a feather bed when you’ve been loving all night,
G C
and you’re got to get some rest,
F
Better than punching out on payday,
Bb
And cruise control down the highway,
F
It’s a whole lot better than it used to be,
C F
and it used to be the best,
C F
and it used to be the best,
