Better Than It Used To Be

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
            G                                          C 
And it's better than a bunch of you buying me another round



(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,
