|Lyrics:||She took my rifles, my new set of golf clubs.
Got the best set of steak knives, stole my good beer mug
Backed over my Harley, now the tires are all flat
And to top it off she crushed my cowboy hat.
She got the best of me, did more than enough
She got the best of me, when she took my stuff.
Never saw it coming, but any fool could see
(she didn’t leave the keys/community property)
She knew what she was doing
She got the best of me
It looked like a tornado, when I walked through the door
Torn pictures, old love letters, scattered on the floor
None of all that mattered, she hit me where it hurt
Even took the dog, when I was at work.
She took a piece of my heart but left the big TV
I guess it was too heavy-- she got the best of me

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
