I Like Girls That Drink Beer

Album: Hope On The Rocks (2012)
  • Bye, bye baby I'm leaving
    You can keep your mansion and your money
    Your boat and your Benz and your uptown friends
    And your country club that ain't really country
    I need a little down home lovin'
    And a man ain't gonna get it up here
    Hey, I'll find what I want in a honky tonk
    I like girls that drink beer

    You bought me a black tie suit and I ain't wearin' it
    Can't be seen in that thing in my Lariat
    Ain't goin' down to the ball in your chariot
    This high rise life just ain't for me

    Bye, bye baby I'm leaving
    Now you can keep your mansion and your money
    Your boat and your Benz and your uptown friends
    And your country club that ain't really country
    I need a little down home lovin'
    And a man ain't gonna get it up here
    Hey I'll find what I want in a honky tonk
    I like girls that drink beer

    There's a two lane black top road and Ima hittin' it
    Skinner back song, let her fly just-a gettin' it
    Find me a little hot spot and just sit in it
    Give me a mug of that ice cold brew
    Get me a girl that's got one too

    Bye, bye baby I'm leaving
    You can keep your mansion and your money
    Your boat and your Benz and your uptown friends
    And your country club that ain't really country
    I need a little down home lovin'
    And a man ain't gonna get it up here
    Hey I'll find what I want in a honky tonk
    I like girls that drink beer

    Hey I need a little down home lovin'
    And a man ain't gonna get it up here
    Hey I'll find what I want in a honky tonk
    I like girls that drink beer
    Yeah I'll find what I want in a honky tonk
