  • Midnight in Albuquerque
    Drunk again on a little Wild Turkey
    Damned if her memory didn't show up right on time

    I've driven through the ran, the snow and ice
    I ain't hit the same town twice
    Just lookin' for a place I figured she couldn't find

    I thought by now she'd left me alone
    Turned around and headed back home
    And just let me be
    Hell what does she want with me

    Bartender set 'em up
    Hell as long as she's here might as well stay drunk
    Start fresh tomorrow somewhere down the road
    Shut down another bar
    Try to convince my heart somehow sometime some place
    This is gonna work
    Oh but what if I run out of honky tonks
    Before I get over her

    Well she walked out and bought a map
    A couple towns and I'd be back
    Some place I could hurt where no one knew my name

    Yeah I started out in Little Rock
    I've lost track of everywhere I stopped
    I can't seem to drink enough to outrun the pain

    You'd think by now her memory
    Would get tired of following me
    But tonight ain't the night
    So before they turn out the lights

    Bartender set 'em up
    Hell as long as she's here might as well stay drunk
    Start fresh tomorrow somewhere down the road
    Shut down another bar
    Try to convince my heart somehow sometime some place
    This is gonna work
    Oh but what if I run out of honky tonks
    Before I get over her

    Shut down another bar
    Try to convince my heart somehow sometime some place
    This is gonna work
    Oh but what if I run out of honky tonks
    Before I get over her
    'Fore I get over her Writer/s: JAMIE PAULIN, ASHE UNDERWOOD, JUSTIN MOORE
