Lyrics

BACK ON THE VODKA AGAIN

Rented tuxedo and a long white train
I married the girl next door
Put on our new face and ignored the pain
Of trading my guitars for selling door to door
Temptation tracks a tortured man
Resentment takes the upper hand
I get to thinking the only choice I can choose
Is 2 clear plastic pints in a paper sack, a little juice

& I’m Back On the VODKA Again
Haven’t drunk it in a long, long time
Every time I drink it I don’t know why
‘cause it takes forever to clear my mind
Is the sky gray or just dark blue
Is the problem ME or is it YOU
Is this a new beginning or the end
I’m Back On the VODKA Again

Nursing home wheelchair on a dead end road
10 months later my Daddy was gone
I tried to figure how and IF I could GO on
Without him there behind me somewhere so strong
But Temptation tracks a tortured man
Resentment takes the upper hand
I get to thinking the only choice I can choose
Is 2 clear plastic pints in a paper sack, a little juice

& I’m Back On the VODKA Again
Haven’t drunk it in a long, long time
Every time I drink it I don’t know why
‘cause it takes forever to clear my mind
Is the sky gray or just dark blue
Is the problem ME or is it YOU
Is this a new beginning or the end
I’m Back On the VODKA Again

I gotta change my thinking
Let go of my life Make a new beginning
Spend some sober time down on my knees
Got to look inside and see what I see

When I ain’t on the vodka again
Cap that bottle for the last, last time
Get real still Probly Cry
Take some time to clear my mind
The sky ain’t gray It’s blue
The problem’s in me It ain’t you
{: Where the drinkin’ ends, I begin
Ain’t getting’ on the VODKA again :}
