  • You and I had this off and on so long
    You've been here, then you've been gone
    So many times

    And every night, yeah I'm always bumping into you
    Well, you do the same things we used to
    It's your place or it's mine, so

    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
    We'll lie and swear we're through
    With the lonely, drunken deja vu
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
    Five minutes out of downtown
    Ain't nothing but a countdown

    One Mississippi, two Mississippi
    Three shots of whiskey
    Are you on your way?
    We're tipsy, baby, come kiss me
    I can't wait, I can't wait
    Mississippi, two Mississippi
    Three in the mornin'
    We'll be on our way
    So tipsy, can't stop kissin'
    I can't wait, I can't wait
    Forever

    Mm, every time I'm at this bar
    Tap on the shoulder, turn around
    And baby, there you are

    And it's fire
    Yeah, like this bourbon hundred-proof
    Yeah, they don't burn the way you do
    Yeah, we're better in the dark, so

    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
    We'll lie and swear we're through
    With the lonely, drunken deja vu
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
    Five minutes out of downtown
    Ain't nothing but a countdown

    One Mississippi, two Mississippi
    Three shots of whiskey
    Are you on your way?
    We're tipsy, baby, come kiss me
    I can't wait, I can't wait
    Mississippi, two Mississippi
    Three in the mornin'
    We'll be on our way
    So tipsy, can't stop kissin'
    I can't wait, I can't wait
    Forever

    Woo

    Kinda like that Georgia wind
    We'll be gone and back again
    But always wind up right back where we are
    Playing roulette with our hearts
    And blowing smoke rings in the dark, yeah

    Oh-oh-oh, oh
    We'll lie and swear we're through
    With the lonely, drunken deja vu
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
    Five minutes out of downtown (ain't nothing but a countdown)
    Ain't nothing but a countdown

    One Mississippi, two Mississippi
    Three shots of whiskey
    Are you on your way
    We're tipsy, baby, come kiss me
    I can't wait, I can't wait
    Mississippi, two Mississippi
    Three in the mornin'
    We'll be on our way
    So tipsy, can't stop kissin'
    I can't wait, I can't wait
    Forever

    Every time I'm at this bar
    Tap on the shoulder, turn around
    And baby, there you are Writer/s: Ernest Smith, Gary Levon Wallace, Jesse Frasure, Kane Brown
