Whiskey Me Away

Album: Georgia (2021)

  • I've been up to Telluride
    So close to the sky, felt like I could touch it
    I've been in a gold shore sand
    Drinking rum-runners out of a bucket
    But today I'm in this long-lost highway town
    Killing time when you sat down
    We had a couple rounds
    And I'm liking where we're headed now

    Throwing quarters down that jukebox
    Play some old-school Alabama
    You got the lonely I brought in here
    Almost gone without a trace
    I know I've had a few, yeah, but I'm buzzing on you
    You're a hangover I'd love to wake up to
    So come on, baby, whiskey me away
    Come on, baby, whiskey me away

    Bartender left that bottle right here
    So let's keep on working on it
    Telling some stories, how where we went wrong
    Got us right here, lost in a moment
    Yeah, let's make it last, make up a slow dance
    To Tennessee River and Mountain Man

    Throwing quarters down that jukebox
    Play some old-school Alabama
    You got the lonely I brought in here
    Almost gone without a trace
    I know I've had a few, yeah, but I'm buzzing on you
    You're a hangover I'd love to wake up to
    So come on, baby, whiskey me away

    Lucky me, you came through this long-lost highway town
    Don't know where I'm heading now, but for now

    Let's throw some quarters down that jukebox
    Play some old-school Alabama
    You got the lonely I brought in here
    Almost gone without a trace
    I know I've had a few, yeah, but I'm buzzing on you
    You're a hangover I'd love to wake up to
    So come on, baby, whiskey me away
    Come on, baby, whiskey me away Writer/s: Blue Foley, Jason Lee Sever, Kiersten Heddon
