Hard Liquor

What do I like?
I like, I don't know,
a sunset in the evening,
a pretty sunset.
I like the sound of a carnival.
Carnival's a pretty sound.
I like the sound of doors slammin'
and the tumblin' of locks.
I like to hear the seal
of a fresh fifth of liquor bein' popped.

-Unknown Hinson

Whiskey, Whiskey
on the shelf.
You were so quiet there
by yourself.
Things were fine
till they took you down
and passed you around.

- Wynonie Harris

Now, that,
I got me some Seagram's gin.
Everybody got they cups,
but they ain't chipped in
Now this types of shit,
happens all the time
You got to get yours
but, Fool, I gotta get mine.

- Snoop Dogg

And I'll see your Red Label
and I'll raise you one more
and you can pour me a cab,
I just can't drink no more
cause it don't douse the flames
that are started by dames.
It ain't like asbestos
it don't do nothing but
rest us assured
and substantiate the rumors
that you've heard.

- Tom Waits


Willie Nelson

I gotta get drunk, I just can't stay sober
There's a lot of good people in town
Who like to see me holler, see me spend my dollar
And I wouldn't dream of lettin' 'em down
There's a lot of doctors tell me
That I'd better start slowing it down
But there's more old drunks than there are old doctors
So I guess we'd better have another round

George Jones

Last night I broke the seal on a Jim Beam decanter
That looks like Elvis
I soaked the label off a Flintstone Jelly Bean jar
I cleared us off a place on that
One little table that you left us
And pulled me up a big ole piece of floor.
I pulled the head off Elvis
Filled Fred up to his pelvis
Yabba Dabba Doo, the King is gone
And so are you.

(Roger Ferris)
