Drinking Side of Country

Album: Good Guys (2012)

  • We played down in the Bayou
    In some old barn they turned into a bar
    This pretty little red hair girl
    Took our drummer to her car
    They were getting hard and heavy
    When someone hollered mister and said
    “You ain’t from around here
    Get your hands off my sister”

    We roll, we roll, we roll, we roll
    We roll down on the highway
    On the drinking side of country
    That’s the ramblers on the run

    So we went up to Detroit and took some country to the city
    Like some old hillbilly tourists
    I guess we looked real silly
    Cause they were laughing at us man
    Till we tired out the band
    Said, you hicks are pretty slick
    So we jammed and then we split

    We roll, we roll, we roll, we roll
    We roll down on the highway
    On the drinking side of country
    That’s the ramblers on the run

    Wooo

    Oh ya
    Haha
    Look what’s coming over this way buddy
    I’m out here

    Brunette from Minnesota drinking
    Jim Bean and Cola kept
    Buying him round shots
    She was trying to get me drunk
    I said my heart don’t belong to me
    I left it back in Tennessee
    She said
    “Your heart ain’t the part that I want

    We roll, we roll, we roll, we roll
    We roll down on the highway
    On the drinking side of country
    That’s the ramblers on the run

    We roll, we roll, we roll, we roll
    We roll down on the highway
    On the drinking side of country
    That’s the ramblers on the run

    Oh no
    I smell trouble
    Just a second
    I’ll be right back Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
