What I Can't Put Down

Album: Write You a Song (2014)
  • I knew the first time should've been the last time
    I ever let the whiskey touch my lips
    'Cause the devil wears black and he goes by Jack
    And he's really good at helpin' me forget

    I thought it was cool when I was a kid
    Walkin' around with that cigarette lit
    On that ol' dirt road, I lit my first smoke
    And I knew right then it wouldn't let me go

    And it's all or nothin'
    So keep it comin'
    Let that feelin' run through my veins
    Ain't no stoppin', keep on rockin', yeah
    It seems I'm always
    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put down
    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put, can't put, can't put down

    She looked my way then looked back again
    Gotta different kinda high when I touched her skin
    When she laid it on me, she rocked my world
    I knew I'd never get away from that girl

    And it's all or nothin'
    So keep it comin'
    Let that feelin' run through my veins
    Ain't no stoppin', keep on rockin', yeah
    It seems I'm always
    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put down
    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put, can't put, can't put down

    When I walked into my first smoky bar
    Cranked up the amp and played this guitar
    Had 'em singin' along by the end of the night
    And I knew I finally got one thing right

    And it's all or nothin'
    So keep it comin'
    Let that feelin' run through my veins
    Ain't no stoppin', keep on rockin', yeah
    It seems I'm always
    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put down
    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put down

    Yeah, I'm always
    Pickin' up what I can't put, can't put, can't put down
    Yeah, yeah, I wanna put it down Writer/s: Bart Butler, Jonathan Pardi, William Brice Long
