  • Don't tell me about no beach
    Don't wanna hear about your mountain
    How the good life is a peach
    You drink your sunsets from a fountain
    No I don't wanna think about it
    Save your breath, I don't wanna hear about it

    I just wanna get right down at the fire light
    Let my baby sing "Hold me tight
    "You honky tonk nighttime man"
    Drink away this crazy world
    Hold tight to a longneck-holdin' girl
    Won't you give it all boys, the fed-up give a damn
    Bartender, here's a fifty
    Pour some whiskey on this drowning man

    We put the smoke in the stack
    Put the seed in the ground
    While Lady Liberty turns her back
    And Uncle Sam just turns around
    No I don't wanna think about it
    Oh tonight I don't wanna think about it

    I just wanna get right down at the fire light
    Let my baby sing "Hold me tight
    "You honky tonk nighttime man"
    Drink away this crazy world
    Hold tight to a longneck-holdin' girl
    Won't you give it all boys, the fed-up give a damn
    Bartender, if you're with me
    Pour some whiskey on this drowning man

    I just wanna get right down at the fire light
    Let my baby sing "Hold me tight
    "You honky tonk nighttime man"
    Drink away this crazy world
    Hold tight to a longneck-holdin' girl
    Won't you give it all boys, the fed-up give a damn
    Bartender, if you're with me
    Pour some whiskey on this drowning man

    Don't tell me about no beach
    Don't wanna hear about your mountain
    How the good life is a peach
    Drink your sunsets from a fountain
    No I don't wanna hear about it
    Save your breath, I don't wanna hear about it Writer/s: Casey Beathard, Eric Church
