As I sit on the edge
Of this never made bed
Old guitar in my lap
A new tune in my head

There she stands in the doorway
Just brushing her hair
It's my beautiful muse
In her underwear

And if I was thinking
I was thinking thank God
Whoever you are
For the muse and this old guitar

It's times like these
So sweet and so true
Thinking's the last thing you want to do

As I sit on the edge
Of this dirty old bar
Tryin' to work some things out
But not gettin' too far

And to drown all the voices that are keeping me down
There's a muse all alone
On the other side of town

And if I was thinkin'
I was thinkin' thank God
Whoever you are
For all the whiskey in this dirty old bar

It's times like these so sad but so true
Thinking's the last thing you want to do
Yeah thinking's the last thing you want to do

As I sit on the bed
In this hospital room
Just sheddin' a tear
For the bride and groom
And the tiniest voice
Starts to bellow and cry
It's my finest work yet
If today I should die

And if I was thinkin'
I'd be thinkin' thank God
For the muse and the miracle
Right here in my arms

Times like these so sweet and so true
Thinkin's the last thing that you outta do
Yeah thinkin's the last thing that you outta do
Yeah thinkin's the last thing that you outta do

    General CommentThis song was originally written by and performed by the Wood Brothers. Zac Brown covered this on his Grohl Sessions No. 1. It's interesting to me that he changed the line about God from the original "whoever you are" to "wherever your are". Right on, brother.
