Covering Gary Allan Songs is my favorite – Smoke Rings In the dark

I love covering Gary Allan songs. I guess because I've been listening to him since his first CD came out when I was in Jr high.

I used to sing to the girls on the bus on the way to track meets. It was a great  ice breaker!
One of my favorite all time Gary Allan songs is Smoke rings in the dark.
Check out the video below of me covering it with just my acoustic guitar.
Lyrics
Well I won't make you tell me
What I've come to understand
You're a certain kind of woman
I'm a different kind of man
I've tried to make you love me
You've tried to find a spark of the flame that burned
But somehow turned to smoke rings in the dark
The loneliness within me
Takes a heavy toll
'Cause it burns as slow as whiskey through an empty aching soul
And the night is like a dagger
Long and cold and sharp
As I sit here on the front steps
Blowing smoke rings in the dark
I know I must be going
'Cause love's already gone
And all I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart
And all I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark
The rain falls where it wants to
The wind blows where it will
Everything on earth goes somewhere
But I swear we're standin' still
So I'm not going to wake you
I'll go easy on your heart
I'll just touch your face and drift away
Like smoke rings in the dark
I know I must be going
'Cause love's already gone
And all I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart
And all I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark
