Hold My Beer

Album: Cowboy's Back In Town (2010)
  • "Ah, dearly beloved,
    We're gathered up in here today to join in holy monogamy
    This here feller and this ol' gal that he brought with him."
    The weddin' chapel couldn't get more packed
    The love birds were dressed in white and black
    The preacher turned to the groom and asked
    him to skip the ring on her left hand
    He turned to his best man and said

    Hold my beer
    This won't take long
    And I want it back
    And I don't want it gone
    I trust ya, buddy, here
    Hold my beer

    "I now pronounce you, y'all"

    They cut the cake and they poured champagne
    They macarana'd and formed a train
    But it crashed right into the groom's old flame
    As she came crashin' in
    The new bride just kinda grinned and said

    Hold my beer
    This won't take long
    And I want it back
    And I don't want it gone
    I trust ya, honey, here
    Hold my beer

    When the cat fight broke up
    The band broke into some Haggard and Hank and some Cash
    When somebody's cousin that nobody knew
    Yelled, "What's with this hillbilly crap?"
    You could've heard a pin drop
    And then

    Hold my beer
    This won't take long
    And I want it back
    And I don't want it gone
    Somebody,
    Hold my beer
    This won't take long
    And I want it back
    And I don't want it gone
    I trust ya, buddy, here
    Hold my beer

    "Yeah, no, no just hold it.
    No, I wasn't givin' it for you to drink.
    No.
    It's gone now.
    Never ask the preacher to hold your beer." Writer/s: CASEY BEATHARD, ED HILL, MONTY CRISWELL
