Whiskey & Lace

Album: Whiskey & Lace (2013)
  • Casey needs another spray-on tan
    Momma's here to keep Cheyenne
    It's almost nine o'clock and time to go
    She's livin' in a single-wide
    Doin' what she has to to survive
    And Tuesday nights are always kinda slow

    But she hops into that old TransAm
    Cranks up some Marshall Tucker Band
    Puttin' make-up on singin' 'long to "Can't You See"
    Yeah she walks into that backstage door
    Changes out of what she wore
    Pours herself a double shot of Jackie D

    Ain't exactly where she wants to be
    Next month's rent don't grow on trees
    And she tries to put a smile upon her face
    As the DJ calls her up to the stage
    She goes by another name
    And hides behind the whiskey and lace

    She spins around to "Purple Rain"
    Every night's the same damn thing
    She drifts off into another place
    She don't wanna see who's here tonight
    Thank God the spotlight blinds her eyes
    And it won't take long 'til the music starts to fade

    Now she's pickin' up dollar bills
    Leaves the runway in her heels
    Starts countin' out the cash she gets to keep
    She towels off, checks her hair
    Falls into her dressin' chair
    Pours herself another shot of Jackie D

    Ain't exactly where she wants to be
    Next month's rent don't grow on trees
    And she tries to put a smile upon her face
    As the DJ calls her up to the stage
    She goes by another name
    And hides behind the whiskey and lace

    This shift's about to end
    And now it's almost 2AM
    And she's wishin' she was home there with Cheyenne

    Ain't exactly where she wants to be
    Next month's rent don't grow on trees
    And she tries to put a smile upon her face
    As the DJ calls her up to the stage
    She goes by another name
    And hides behind the whiskey and lace
    Ooo, ooo, ooo
    Whiskey and lace
