Saddle up, stomp the gas Cross the tracks and don’t look back We’re headed down the old dirt road To where they make the liquid gold It’s a place beyond compare We’re driving down the road to nowhere A rusty fence and lean-to barn Full of life and backwoods charm It’s not a place police should go They’ll never find their way back home But we’ll tip some whiskey in a prayer We’re driving down the road to nowhere Now it’s the kind of place where dreams come true And giving directions is the only taboo The moonshine flows like a river through the trees Just like the days of memory Pass the bottle, leave the glass Make sure you fill your flask You’ll never find a better brew Cross the land or yonder blue Those other drinks will never compare We’re driving down the road to nowhere Saddle up, stomp the gas Cross the tracks and don’t look back We’re headed down the old dirt road To where they make the liquid gold It’s a place beyond compare (Hang on we're almost there!) We’re driving down the road to nowhere

Hie-a-lie-a-lie Raise your glass to the sky There's only so much time for us To drink before we die Tip your bartender well cause You may see him in hell Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie At the tavern you can say All the things you'd wish away And never be worried about a fight There's no cover at the door And your welcome all the more When the whiskey get's poured all night So pour another beer And be happy that your here There's no reason to be down tonight Let the whiskey in your jar And the smell of cheap cigar Make you feel that everything's allright Hie-a-lie-a-lie Raise your glass to the sky There's only so much time for us To drink before we die Tip your bartender well cause You may see him in hell Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie So pour another glass And smoke your grass Put your arm around a lass and drink away Every tavern in this town Will let you buy another round To help you spread liquid cheer all day So pour another beer And be happy that your here There's no reason to be down tonight Let the whiskey in your jar And the smell of cheap cigar Make you feel that everything's allright Hie-a-lie-a-lie Raise your glass to the sky There's only so much time for us To drink before we die Tip your bartender well cause You may see him in hell Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie

Not so long ago in this bar that I know I met a man who had his world turned upside down For many long years he’d enjoyed drinking beer And his binges were the talk of the town Then one night at the bar, he’s drinking whiskey by the jar But that old familiar feeling didn’t come He stared in dismay as that whiskey did betray him Bottle after bottle but he never got drunk Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more So fella, just what are you drinking that for? Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more Well he told me that he tried to get drunk every night All the whiskey, wine and beer he could afford But nothing seemed to work and he told me with a smirk That making good decisions all the time is a bore Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more So fella, just what are you drinking that for? Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more He made money for a time taking bets From all the drunks who wanted to put him to the test And he found out very quickly That the girls just ain’t so pretty At last call When you’re still seeing straighter than the rest Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more So fella, just what are you drinking that for? Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more So the moral of this tale Is enjoy your your wine and ale Anytime you can While you can!

Throw another bottle at the door I've only got five more I'm sitting here with my only friend I'm partying alone at 6 AM Because it's whiskey in the morning To try to make it through the afternoon Try as I might I just can't fight The way I feel about what I did to you Throw another record on the wheel Crack another bottle break the seal Let the music usher my descent I'm partying alone at 6 AM Because it's whiskey in the morning To try to make it through the afternoon Try as I might I just can't fight The way I feel about what I did to you Whiskey in the morning To try to make it through the afternoon Try as I might I just can't fight The way I feel about what I did to you It was the memory of the day that I killed you Whiskey in the morning To try to make it through the afternoon Try as I might I just can't fight The way I feel about what I did to you It was the memory of the day that I killed you.

Hey-ey-ah The root and the faraway Hey-ey-ah The leaf and the grey Hey-ey-ah The root and the faraway The fearless will dream Of the end of today The root cannot dream Of a land all in green Yet it stakes the canopy strong A man in the world Given visions to hold Only breaks that which he belongs What's in a word While hanging from a string Yet silence can hurt So we sing Hey-ey-ah The root and the faraway Hey-ey-ah The leaf and the grey Hey-ey-ah The root and the oh so faraway The fearless will dream Of the end of today A vision revealed Bare flesh in a field Is it near or so faraway The sights that we've seen Contextually obscene Telling nature we must disobey Standing up When we are called Or living a life At a crawl Hey-ey-ah The root and the faraway Hey-ey-ah The leaf and the grey Hey-ey-ah The root and the oh so faraway The fearless will dream Of the end of today The root cannot dream Of the visions of green So close, so far away Hey-ey-ah The root and the faraway Hey-ey-ah The leaf and the grey Hey-ey-ah The root and the so faraway The fearless will dream Of the end of today The fearless will dream Of the end of today

Today is the best day of the year Find a friend they ain’t too far Drink the whiskey in your jar Watch the girls dance on the bar Today is the best day of the year Today is the best day of the year We’ve got everyone we care about right here We know the bartender’s name He treats everyone the same And a round always gets a little cheer Today is the best day of the year Now yesterday was fine We had the time of our lives And tomorrow we’ll be right back here But my favorite time by far Is this moment with you all As we sit back and drink and cheer Find a friend up at the bar To put more whiskey in your jar Cause last call just ain’t that far Today is the best day of the year Find a friend they ain’t too far Drink the whiskey in your jar Watch those girls dance on the bar Today is the best day of the year
