Down at the Whisky

Album: Saints of Los Angeles (2008)
  • Runaways in a van
    All go straight to Hollywood
    We'll leave a scar
    Don't give a damn
    Vandalize the neighborhood

    Do you remember when?

    We slept all day
    In our clothes
    But that's okay
    In Hollywood

    Another shot
    Another show
    All night long at the Whiskey A Go-Go

    Do you remember when?

    We were on the run
    Got loaded like a shotgun
    Living out our dreams
    Down at the Whiskey

    We never made a dime
    But god we had a good time
    We always made a scene
    Down at the Whiskey

    LA girls they payed the rent
    While we got drunk on Sunset Strip
    And all the cash they made we spent
    On tattoos and cigarettes

    Do you remember when?

    We were on the run
    Got loaded like a shotgun
    Living out our dreams
    Down at the Whiskey

    We never made a dime
    But god we had a good time
    We always made a scene
    Down at the Whiskey

    Oh we were throwing fights
    And we were gettin' high
    Living out our dreams
    Down at the Whiskey

    We were on the run
    Got loaded like a shotgun
    Living out our dreams
    Down at the Whiskey

    We never made a dime
    But god we had a good time
    We always made a scene
    Down at the Whiskey

  • Mike Pellegrini from BiloxiSixx really lets you know how things were back in the world of the early Crue! Great lyrics and so true!
  • Jason from Aurora, CoI like how they spell it W-H-I-S-K-Y like scotch whisky. That's because Motley Crue has good taste in booze.
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaI use to see the Crue at the Whisky many times before they broke huge, those were the days!!..
  • Dustin from Arcadia,its a (really) good song highly recommended
  • Jessica from Las Vegas, Nvthe 'Whisky A Go Go' was the bands first place to have a gig ((small indoor show)). I havent heard this song before but i am pretty sure that that is what the band is reffering to.
