lyrics

warm beer and cold women, I just don’t fit in
every joint I stumbled into tonight
that’s just how it’s been
all these double Knit strangers with
gin and vermouth and recycled stories
on the naugahyde booths
with the platinum blondes
and tobacco brunettes
I’ll be drinkin’ to forget you
lite another cigarette
and the band’s playin’ something
by Tammy Wynette
and the drinks are on me tonight
all my conversations I’ll just be
talkin’ about you baby
borin’ some sailor as I try to get through
I just want him to listen
that’s all you have to do
he said I’m better off without you
till I showed him my tattoo
now the moon’s rising
ain’t no time to lose
time to get down to drinking
tell the band to play the blues
drinks are on me, I’ll buy another round
at the last ditch attempt saloon
warm beer and cold women, I just don’t fit in
every joint I stumbled into tonight
that’s just how it’s been
all these double knit strangers with
gin and vermouth and recycled stories
on the naugahyde booths
with the platinum blondes
and tobacco brunettes
I’ll be drinkin’ to forget you
lite another cigarette
and the band’s playin’ somethin’
by Jennie Barnett
and the drinks are on me tonight
