Whiskey Bottle

Album: No Depression (1990)

  • Persuaded, paraded, enebriated, and down
    Still aware of everything life carries on without
    'Cause there's one too many faces with dollar sign smiles
    Got to find the shortest path to the bar for a while

    A long way from happiness
    In a three-hour-away town
    Whiskey bottle over Jesus
    Not forever, just for now
    Not forever, just for now

    There's a trouble around, it's never far away
    The same trouble's been around for a life and a day
    I can't forget the sound, 'cause it's here to stay
    The sound of people chasing money and money getting away

    A long way from happiness
    In a three-hour-away town
    Whiskey bottle over Jesus
    Not forever, just for now
    Not forever, just for now

    In between the dirt and disgust there must be
    Some air to breathe and something to believe
    Liquor and guns the sign says quite plain
    Somehow life goes on in a place so insane

    A long way from happiness
    In a three-hour-away town
    Whiskey bottle over Jesus
    Not forever, just for now
    Not forever, just for now Writer/s: JAY FARRAR, JEFF TWEEDY, MIKE HEIDORN
