lyrics

I have a confession to make
I sing too much about the booze that I've drank
And if you want to know the truth
In my bourbon there's a bit of vermouth

It's not a story it's how it goes
I didn't want to write it I just deal with the blows
So I always try and tell the truth
Cause I figure I got nothing to lose

Well maybe it's the person I've become
Or maybe it's just the water in the rum
Maybe it's becuase I'm falling apart
Maybe just becuase I have a broken heart
Well either way you break it down
There's always one less bottle around

When I try to write a new song
I think about my life and all the things gone wrong
And then I try and write it down
But it helps if I have poured my first round

Then I'll drink bout seven more
And all the real problems I can start to ignore
So I'm probably not telling the truth
I figure maybe I've got too much to lose

What matters most is my honesty
So I am trying to sing with integrity
Every time I make a genuine try
I add a splash of bitters to my bourbon and rye
This is how I write a song
It's no wonder they don't sing along
