When she showed up, I was 6 drinks ahead of her.
I'd got stood up, but I figured that instead of her,
This one was cute, she'd be a fine substitute,
But she looked like Bambi in a fire.
I popped a mint and I sauntered up to her,
Spent some minutes spreading lotsa bull manure,
She got wide-eyed and had one those panic attacks.
I said, "HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX"

HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX,
No need to have a heart attack,
I won't tie you to a railroad track.
I'm tryin' to put you right at ease
We'll take it slow, go as you please.
Try a whiskey, smooth and neat.
Take a load off of your feet.
We'll watch tv, and then you'll see,
My intentions are pure; you can totally trust me.
Don't run away and not come back.
HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX.

I told her that I'd I just broken up (it's true),
And I really wanna hook up with you,
You're the kinda girl my mama woulda liked,
What are you doin' for the rest of the night?

HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX,
No need to have a heart attack,
I won't tie you to a railroad track.
I'm tryin' to put you right at ease
We'll take it slow, go as you please.
Try a whiskey, smooth and neat.
Take a load off of your feet.
We'll watch tv, and then you'll see,
My intentions are pure; you can totally trust me.
Don't run away and not come back.
HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX.

GUITAR SOLO

Back at my place, held her purse tight on her lap,
I really had to put on my thinking cap.
I said "You remind me of my long lost sister",
But she still slapped me when I tried to kiss her.

HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX,
No need to have a heart attack,
I won't tie you to a railroad track.
I'm tryin' to put you right at ease
We'll take it slow, go as you please.
Try a whiskey, smooth and neat.
Take a load off of your feet.
We'll watch tv, and then you'll see,
My intentions are pure; you can totally trust me.
Don't run away and not come back.
HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX.

She ran away and I decided not to follow,
Took that whiskey and I drank it in one swallow.
I'm gonna HAVE A DRINK AND JUST RELAX.
Maybe work on my income tax...

The harmonies on your chorus are great. And the guitar solo is so good. Nice work on a common country theme.

the guitar solo absolutely nails the song. Very clever lyrics, quite funny. The last line in particular. Chorus is very singalongable and has a good bop to it. Hope the hangover was okay the next day. Great tune Smile

The gentleman doth protest too much... Biggrin very suss. Great funny/sinister lyrics and country delivery.
