Ain't Even Drinkin'

Album: Redneck Crazy (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Tyler Farr explained the song's meaning: "I promised my grandma I'd put one song about not drinking on my album, and this song is about drinking, but it isn't," he said. "I wanted to write a song about a guy that this girl just does it for him. In the chorus it says 'I'm already gone.' He's seeing stars, done got shot by cupid with the arrow and too drunk to drive home, but he ain't even drinking. This girl has him more messed up than five snakes in a lawnmower."
