Me And Jack

Album: Heartache Medication (2019)
  • Back when I was just eighteen, I met the man in black
    He said, "Jon, it's nice to meet you, my name is Jack"
    We hung out all the time, we became good friends
    We ran around, we hit the town every damn weekend
    I started missin' work 'cause I was dog-tired
    That boss man had enough and good ol' Jack got me fired

    Me and Jack don't get along no more
    He's high up on the shelf while I'm lyin' on the floor
    He makes me do things I've never done before
    He makes me cuss, he makes me fight
    Don't know what I did last night
    Should've left his ass at the liquor store
    No, me and Jack don't get along no more

    Saw the girl of my dreams and man, she made me nervous
    So, I leaned on my buddy Jack 'cause he gave me the courage
    I swept her off her feet, stole her heart and made her mine
    She moved in and didn't like my friend Jack takin' all our time
    She started gettin' jealous, said, "Jack's got to go"
    He just wouldn't leave, so my girl hit the road

    And me and Jack don't get along no more
    He's high up on the shelf while I'm lyin' on the floor
    He makes me do things I've never done before
    He makes me cuss, he makes me fight
    Don't know what I did last night
    Should've left his ass at the liquor store
    No, me and Jack don't get along no more
    Oh no

    Well, Jack got me in a trouble and I wound up in jail
    So, I'm here doin' time 'cause he won't pay my bail
    I'm gonna change my ways as soon as I get out
    I'm headed for that liquor store to buy a fifth of Crown, 'cause

    Me and Jack don't get along no more
    He's high up on the shelf while I'm lyin' on the floor
    He makes me do things I've never done before
    He makes me cuss, he makes me fight
    Don't know what I did last night
    Should've left his ass at the liquor store
    No, me and Jack don't get along no more

    No, me and Jack don't get along no more
    No, we don't Writer/s: Bart Butler, Jonathan Pardi, Luke Laird, Rhett Akins
