"Wish the Worst" as written by and Bethea Hammond....
Why aren't you here? It's almost 4 a.m.
I finished up all of your beer, now I'm startin' on your gin
I went through your diary, flipped through your phone book
Called all your friends, I just wanna know where you been
I just wanna know where you been

I pulled back your sheets, now I'm crawlin' in your bed
Every drink's one more defeat and every footstep hurts my head
I don't want excuses, I don't wanna hear that you were out with your friends
I just wanna know where you been, I just wanna know where you been

I hope you crash your momma's car
I hope you pass out in some bar
I hope you catch some kinda flu
Let's say I wish the worst for you

I hope you're happy with yourself
I hope you found somebody else
'Cause I ain't askin' you again
I just wanna know where you been
I just wanna know where you been

Why am I here? I've got better things to do
I could hang out on the pier down by the Hudson, sniffin' glue
I guess I'm a looser, but I like being miserable, swimming in sin
I just wanna know where you been, I just wanna know where you been

I hope you crash your momma's car
I hope you pass out in some bar
I hope you catch some kinda flu
Let's say I wish the worst for you

I hope you're happy with yourself
I hope you found somebody else
'Cause I ain't askin' you again
I just wanna know where you been
I just wanna know where you been
I just wanna know where you been
I just wanna know where you been

    General CommentI actually lived this song a little one night,...my 34th birthday in April of 2000,...I was so wasted and around four in the afternoon, I went to the apartment that I had shared with an ex gf for almost 5 years. We had just broken up a few months earlier, and I was regretting it, trying to get her back. She wasn't home, actually she was at work,..so I drank and got into the bed. I woke up at 7:30 thinking it was 7:30 the next morning, and she never came home after work. When I realized it was the same day, I got in my truck, played this song, and went back to my bar to continue drinking.

    General CommentI adore this song. Rhett really imbues it with pathetic misery.
