about

bluesy love song to booze

lyrics

1.I wish I could quit drinking
But my mind donʼt quit for days
Yes I wish I could quit drinking
But it takes away the haze
And with a sip from your own sweet lips
I can make it through the day.
2. To sleep without this medicine
Would be quite the feat
To sleep without this medicine
Would drain the beat from out my feet
It was good enough to heal my pop
Now he sleeps six feet deep.
3. Iʼve never been so thirsty
Since they stranded me you see
Yes Iʼve never been so thirsty
Now Iʼm hoarse as a banshee
Iʼm so glad that you came here, honey
ʻCause you harmonize with me.
4. The visions, they keep coming
Iʼm never quite alone
I said these visions just keep coming
They scratch right down to my bones
With a flask on my hip I can give ʻem the slip
Then you and I can be alone.
5. I wish I could quit drinking
But my mind donʼt quit for days
Yes I wish I could quit drinking
But it takes away the haze
And when youʼre around I canʼt hear no hounds
Ask the barkeep for one more round.
