Fillin' My Cup

Album: yet to be titled (2021)
  • It ain't the bartender, it ain't the bottle
    It ain't the headache I'll have tomorrow
    It's a high-low life when you shake it on up
    Fillin' my cup

    It's all my people sittin' 'round a table
    Real sad country on the radio
    My go-to blues and my old faithful
    Barely pushin' twenty, but still carryin' me home

    It's one part happy and one part chaos
    Whole lotta borrowed, little bit paid off
    You can't appreciate the sugar if you never had the salt
    Ain't it nice and sweet even when it's on the rocks? Yeah

    It ain't the bartender, it ain't the bottle
    It ain't the headache I'll have tomorrow
    It's a high-low life when you shake it on up
    Fillin' my cup

    It's all those so close you can taste it
    Hard pill to swallow, goodbye loves
    Sometimes, half empty is good for makin'
    Room for the know it when you see it good stuff

    It's one part happy and one part pain
    Knowin' what you can and what you can't change
    And learnin' that the secret is wantin' what you got
    Makes it nice and sweet even when it's on the rocks, yeah

    It ain't the bartender, it ain't the bottle
    It ain't the headache comin' tomorrow
    It's a high-low life when you shake it on up
    Fillin' my cup

    It ain't the bartender, it ain't the bottle
    It ain't the headache I'll have tomorrow
    It's a high-low life when you shake it on up
    Fillin' my cup
    Yeah, it ain't the whiskey, it ain't the wine
    Though it sure goes good from time to time
    With this high-low life, go and shake it on up
    Yeah, that's the stuff that's fillin' my cup

    Shake it on up
    Fill it up, woo Writer/s: Hailey Whitters, Hillary Lindsey, Nicolle Galyon
