Your Mama Should've Named You Whiskey

Album: Crash My Party (2013)
  • Just a little taste won't hurt at all
    But once I get a sip, I know I'm gonna wanna drink it gone, all gone
    90 proof is an understatement
    I get around you and I'm way past wasted
    I can't think at all

    Your mama should've named you whiskey
    I never should've let you kiss me
    And every time you leave it hits me
    Your mama should've named you whiskey

    Girl, you got a smile like a devil on my shoulder
    Tempting me sayin', honey come over right now, right now
    I know I shouldn't wanna, but I think I'm probably gonna
    Even though I know I'm gonna be wakin' up hurtin' in the morning
    Shoulda come with a warning

    Your mama should've named you whiskey
    I never should've let you kiss me
    Yeah, and every time you leave it hits me
    Your mama should've named you whiskey

    I'm addicted girl, I'm hangin' on
    I'm a fool in love, I'm long past gone
    Yeah, so, come on

    Your mama should've named you whiskey
    And I never should've let you kiss me
    Oh, and every time you leave it hits me
    Oh baby, your mama should've named you whiskey

    I'm addicted girl, such a fool
    I'm addicted girl, such a fool Writer/s: JEREMY SPILLMAN, LUKE LAIRD, THOMAS RHETT
