lyrics

I can't hold my liquor any more
I piss my pants and wake up on the floor
The doctor says I've got the gout
because my ankle's giving out
and I can't hold my liquor any more

There was a time I'd sit and drink all day
pick up my guitar and how I could play
but now I've broken all my strings
and I've got no voice left to sing
and my old lady says I'm no good in the hay

But baby, baby please don't go
Sweet baby, baby please don't go
If you leave me just for spite
I might not make it through the night
so baby, baby please don't go

Tomorrow it might be raining
and tomorrow there might be shine
I tell you I don't really give a damn
as long as I've got plenty of wine

I'd like to be drunk every single day
sobriety is only in the way
of the good times and the girls
that I imagine I could twirl
on the dance floor if I had more chardonnay

Tomorrow I'll probably be hurting
and tonight I'll probably snore
If you get mad and tell me you're leaving
I'll tell you that's just what I'm drinking for

It seems that I can't hold my liquor any more
I piss my pants and wake up on the floor
The doctor says I've got the gout
because my ankles swelling out
and it seems that I can't hold my liquor any more.

Matt Hudgins & His Shit-Hot Country Band Athens, Georgia

We're a ten-piece (sometimes) country band from Athens, Georgia who had our first practice in January of 2010 at a club where some of us worked. We're better than we were then, as people and as a band. Think 60s & 70s country. Hell, as late as the nineties they hadn't figured out how to fuck up EVERYTHING coming out of Nashville. We like that stuff, and write all our own songs. Go Braves. ... more
