lyrics

the warm smell of whiskey three fingers high
two hearts in my chest by which I abide
one for the future and one that passed by

pour me one more for this old steel guitar
that cried all the tears that I couldn't thus far
sing for me now it's not so hard

basement speakeasies and old honky-tonks
sing me old western songs if right and wrong
of cowboys who've died but there soul lives on

won't you dear dj take me to the past
spin that old vinyl of mr. cash
light from the fire long shadows cast

like souls in a dance won't you spin me around
till I buzz and I blur and my legs give out
put a smile on my face let me fall to the ground
and sing me old western songs
take me on back to my home for some rest
head on hard pillow and hands on my chest
today they told me
forget all the rest

pour me one more 'fore I lay down to sleep
for stardom and kind love and insane belief
deliver me morning with relief

like souls in a dance won't you spin me around
till I buzz and I blur and my legs give out
put a smile on my face let me fall to the ground
and sing me old western songs
take me on back to my home for some rest
head on hard pillow and hands on my chest
today I know that
i did my best
