COUNTRY SONG SUBMISSION: Phil Shoemaker
Song Title: It's Not The Liquor Talkin' Now
It's Not The Liquor Talkin' Now
1. That good ol' boy gets wasted every night can't tell his left from right
Buys a drink for everyone in sight, ain't wound up too tight, not at all
Don't look now, here comes his ball and chain now here we go again
once upon a time he made a vow but it doesn't mean a thing by now
next thing you know her eyes are a tearin' scream bloody murder while
the crowd is a cheerin' “Baby I'm not discussin' it with you now!”
2. Closin' time our hero is homeward bound couldn't finish that final round
now the sheriff is on his trail pulls him over carts him off to jail one more time.
Welcome back drivin' under that influence, congratulations it's your third offense
telephone is right down the hall here's a quarter go and make your call...
he says whatever I said, I beg you to forget it, baby I'm sorry I surely do regret it,
Baby it's not the liquor talkin' now
Baby get a move on when you gonna rescue me?
Baby get the lead out hurry up and set me free!
3. Her reply: Don't you give me none of your sweet talk I ain't a gonna be your laughing stock
I oughta let you post your own damn bail for all I care you can rot in jail
he says whatever I told ya I beg you to forget it Baby I'm sorry I surely do regret it
Baby it's not the liquor talkin' now talkin' now talkin' now
