Takin' Pills

Album: Hell on Heels (2011)

  • She's on the highest dose of Prozac a woman can take,
    She's likes to pop her pain pills with every little ache,
    She's got a Tennessee mountain point of view,
    If your gonna have one might as well have two

    Raised up right in the hills of Kentucky,
    No she ain't gonna smile til she lights up her lucky,
    No filter on her mouth or her cigarettes
    Oh baby what your lookin' at is what you get

    'Cause we owe 400 dollars to the boys in the band
    Gas lights blinking on our broke down van
    We're living on truck stop burgers and fries
    Crossing our fingers for a vacancy sign
    Well who in the hell is gonna be pay these bills
    When one's drinking, one's smoking, one's taking pills

    She's a root tootin' pistol from the lonestar state
    She's mixes up a double at the break of everyday
    She might get crazy but she don't get mean
    Until some drunk cowboy asks her to sing

    'Cause we owe 400 dollars to the boys in the band
    Gas lights blinking on our broke down van
    We're living on truck stop burgers and fries
    Crossing our fingers for a vacancy sign
    Well who in the hell is gonna be pay these bills
    When one's drinking, one's smoking, one's taking pills

    Now we ain't ashamed of who we are
    We like fast men and cheap guitars
    Ain't trying to get rich just trying to get by
    By playing for tips on a Saturday night

    'Cause we owe 400 dollars to the boys in the band
    Gas lights blinking on our broke down van
    We're living on truck stop burgers and fries
    Crossing our fingers for a vacancy sign
    Well who in the hell is gonna be pay these bills
    When one's drinking, one's smoking, one's taking pills Writer/s: ANGALEENA PRESLEY, ASHLEY MONROE, MIRANDA LAMBERT
