“Whiskey River” on a jukebox
A honky tonk sawdust dance floor
A neon, five o’clock, broke clock
And plenty damn many when you want one more
Of this broke heart fool on an old bar stool
Drinkin’ beer almost as cold as you

Put a hurtin’ on that ole Gibson
And I could tell you ’bout all the life that I’ve been livin’
Like you’d think you’d be the proudest man in town
Like you’d think you’d be the proudest man in town
If I could see you see me now
See me now
