Weed, Whiskey and Willie

Album: Port Saint Joe (2018)
  • I've got bottles and vinyl stacked to the ceilin'
    I get stoned for survival, it helps with the healin'
    And when it all goes to hell the only thing I believe in
    Is weed, whiskey, and Willie

    You can take the rain
    You can take all leave my name
    You can have my heart
    It's broken anyway
    You can take my reputation
    And drag it through the mud, go on and abuse it
    But don't take my smoke
    My jug of brown liquor or my country music

    I've got bottles and vinyl stacked to the ceilin'
    I get stoned for survival, it helps with the healin'
    And when it all goes to hell the only thing I believe in
    Is weed, whiskey, and Willie

    Turn the music up
    I'm gonna lock all the doors
    Turn off the lights and close every blind
    There ain't nobody home
    And the pictures on the wall
    Just about lost in a cloud of smoke
    My vices and heroes will hold me together when I'm lettin' you go

    I've got bottles and vinyl stacked to the ceilin'
    I get stoned for survival, it helps with the healin'
    And when it all goes to hell the only thing I believe in
    Is weed, whiskey, and Willie
    And when I'm back on my feet, I'm gonna keep on repeatin'
