  • Somebody hand me a cigarette
    I know I ain't had one in over a week
    Somebody pour me a double shot
    Been getting better by the day but tonight I drink
    You say I gotta get over you
    And get sober too
    I got a lotta habits I gotta kick
    Well, weigh out all your options
    And take your pick

    I can either burn the bar down
    Or I can take your number out my phone
    I can give you up right now
    Never want you back long as I'm half stoned
    If you want me to quit you
    Want me to get you out of my heart and, baby, off my mind
    I hate to tell ya, girl
    But I'm only quitting one thing at a time

    I know I got me some problems
    About a thousand memories I gotta forget
    But if I'm gonna solve 'em
    Baby, I'll take all the help I can get
    If you ain't gonna kiss me
    Then I'll take some whiskey
    Some Grizzly
    Nicotine amphetamines too
    You want me to stop some of that
    Or you want me to stop loving you
    Hey, what you want me to do?

    I can either burn the bar down
    Or I can take your number out my phone
    I can give you up right now
    Never want you back long as I'm half stoned
    If you want me to quit you
    Want me to get you out of my heart and, baby, off my mind
    I hate to tell ya, girl
    But I'm only quitting one thing at a time
    Ah, yeah, I hate to tell you
    Ah, yeah, I hate to tell you

    I ain't no superman
    I'm just the way I am
    If I'm gonna move on
    Then I need me something in my hand
    Ain't nothing wrong with that
    And if you ain't coming back

    I can either burn the bar down
    Or I can take your number out my phone
    I can give you up right now
    Never want you back long as I'm half stoned
    If you want me to quit you
    Want me to get you out of my heart and baby, off my mind
    I hate to tell ya, girl
    But I'm only quitting one thing at a time
    Ah, yeah, I hate to tell you
    Ah, yeah, I hate to tell you
    Ah, yeah, I hate to tell you Writer/s: Ashley Glenn Gorley, Ernest Keith Smith, Morgan Wallen, Ryan Vojtesak
