  • Don't give me that look, that let me down easy smile
    Don't act like I couldn't see you coming for a hundred miles
    Don't try to find the perfect words
    Can't take the pain out of the hurt
    Hit me hard, baby I can take it
    It's your move, go on and make it

    Make it burn the whole way down
    Lay my six foot four inch ass out on the ground
    Yeah, tomorrow I'll have me a hard hangover
    And one hell of a heartache
    So pour it on like a shot of whiskey
    And shoot me straight

    I've got some friends who'd love to go raise some hell
    A couple old flames to help me bid you farewell
    There's plenty of time and alcohol
    From happy hour, to last call
    So do what you gotta do
    So I can get to getting over you

    And make it burn the whole way down
    Lay my six foot four inch ass out on the ground
    Yeah, tomorrow I'll have me a hard hangover
    And one hell of a heartache
    So pour it on like a shot of whiskey
    And shoot me straight

    Don't give me that salt shaker and lime
    Don't give me that come back chaser this time
    Don't muddle it up, don't water it down
    Give me everything you got right here, right now
    Make it burn

    Make it burn the whole way down
    Lay my six foot four inch ass out on the ground
    Yeah, tomorrow I'll have me a hard hangover
    And one hell of a heartache
    Pour it on like a shot of whiskey
    And shoot me straight

    Shoot me straight, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on now Writer/s: John Osborne, Lee Miller, Thomas Osborne
