“Whiskey Thunder”
By: Todd Mihan Band
Woke up sick from the night before
Three sheets can’t keep you warm no more
Thinking you dreamt it but you’re just not sure
Whiskey thunder pounding in your brain
18 rounds , you can feel the pain
Don’t know how you’ll make it through the day
Too tired to live
When you’re digging your grave
So much to give
Just wasting away
Beating yourself up you can’t win
Sinking like a rock in a glass of gin
Better break this spell
Do right by yourself
6 A.M. staring in your face
Boss won’t mind if you’re a little late
Dial the number what a big mistake
All you heard was screaming in your ear
He made sure to get his message clear
We don’t need you anymore around here
Too tired to live
When you’re digging your grave
So much to give
Just wasting away
Beating yourself up you can’t win
Sinking like a rock in a glass of gin
Better break this spell
Do right by yourself
Runnin’ around town tryin’ to get your fix
Tried to slow down but you can’t resist
Better change your ways
You’ll lose …lose at this pace
10 A.M. sittin’ at the bar
Aint been there since last call
Order a drink to help you forget it all
