The content of the lyrics represents a conversation between a man and a woman in a bar, but only the side of the man’s conversation is revealed. At first he says: “Well, excuse me, but I think you have my chair.” Throughout the conversation, the conversation becomes more intimate, until the woman agrees to let the man take her home. At the end he says: “Oh, I like you too, and to tell you the truth, after all, that was not my chair”.

George Strait – The Chair Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well, excuse me
But I think you have got my chair
No, that one is not taken
I do not mind
If you sit here, I will be glad to share

Yeah, it is usually packed here on Friday nights
Oh, if you do not mind
Could I talk you out of a light?

[Verse 2]
Well, thank you, could I drink you a buy?
Oh, listen to me, what I mean is can I buy you a drink?
Anything you please
Oh, you are welcome, well, I do not think I caught your name
Are you waiting for someone to meet you here?
Well, that makes two of us glad you came

[Verse 3]
No, I do not know the name of the band, but they are good
Aren’t they, would you like to dance?
Yeah, I like this song too, it reminds me of you and me
Well, baby do you think there is a chance
That later on I could drive you home?
No, I do not mind at all

[Verse 4]
Oh, I like you too, and to tell you the truth
That was not my chair after all
Oh, I like you too, and to tell you the truth
That was not my chair after all
