One Bottle O’ Whiskey Away…from Two Feet in the Grave…

One Bottle Away...from Two Feet in the Grave 1

 

Observed the whole of your crazy fated days on Earth…
belt-buckle days, your wrathful sting…what my life was worth…
times I cried…wondered why…your soul I couldn’t save…
one bottle o’ whiskey away…from two feet in the grave…

One bottle of whiskey away…nothing I could say…
or do would make you change your  ways…devil’s due to pay…
with good intentions…hell’s highway…some say is paved…
with whiskey bottles under foot…six feet in the grave…

Mean words you said…the crazy things I saw you do…
“Don’t do as I do…just do as I say,” untrue…
when true is false and false is true…your dark man cave…
one bottle o’ whiskey away…from two feet in the grave…

One bottle of whiskey away…nothing I could say…
or do would make you change your  ways…devil’s due to pay…
with good intentions…hell’s highway…some say is paved…
with whiskey bottles under foot…six feet in the grave…

 

One Bottle Away...from Two Feet in the Grave 2

 

Your love for me…was never free…came with a price…
the day you called on the line…ask for my advice…
respect…finally got from you…one thing I craved…
one bottle o’ whiskey away…from two feet in the grave…

One bottle of whiskey away…nothing I could say…
or do would make you change your  ways…devil’s due to pay…
with good intentions…hell’s highway…some say is paved…
with whiskey bottles under foot…six feet in the grave…

Like father…like son…looked as though might be my life…
found a woman so much like you…made her my wife…
it didn’t last…all sins past…the day came…I forgave…
one bottle o’ whiskey away…from two feet in the grave…

One bottle of whiskey away…nothing I could say…
or do would make you change your  ways…devil’s due to pay…
with good intentions…hell’s highway…some say is paved…
with whiskey bottles under foot…six feet in the grave…

 

with good intentions…hell’s highway…some say is paved…

with whiskey bottles under foot…six feet in the grave…
