  • The bottle of whiskey
    Pour it down his throat
    Been drowned in white lightning
    Gonna let it soak
    My eyes start to bleeding
    From the southern smoke
    And ain't nobody leaving
    Cause the shards will split your throat

    And ain't nobody fooling around

    Them boys are wild
    Back in the woods
    They got a child
    Who's misunderstood
    When the boys start to drinking
    You know it ain't no good
    Ain't gonna live for tomorrow
    You know you never should

    His ghost lives in the trailer
    It was his foster home
    Pall Malls and an inhaler
    His girl's nagging on the phone
    The pain his body's feeling
    Will leave you accident prone
    Cause the car he was stealing
    Drove to the unknown

    And ain't nobody fooling around

    Them boys are wild
    Back in the woods
    They got a child
    Who's misunderstood
    When the boys start to drinking
    You know it ain't no good
    Ain't gonna live for tomorrow
    You know you never should

    Them boys are wild
    Back in the woods
    They got a child
    Who's misunderstood
    When the boys start to drinking
    You know it ain't no good
    Ain't gonna live for tomorrow
    You know you never should Writer/s: KENDALL, LARDIE, NIVEN, RUSSELL
