Liner Notes: 

The first two lines came to me in my laundry room so I had to write it down. Anyone want to do a demo?


© 2019 Cindy Prince

I taste regret at the bottom of the bottle
Can't seem to climb up and over that rim
I make excuses, and I make up reasons
Whiskey is a lady by the name of Jim

I hate myself every morning after
But the enticement is stronger than me
I try to hide that I have a problem
I'd rather live in a drunken fantasy

It all started with her leavin'
I tried to fill the empty space
I know that's not a good reason
Why can't I drink away her face?

One glass
Two glass
Three glass

Others tried to coax me to AA
Sounded like a good idea at first
Until I had another dream of her
And woke up with a powerful thirst

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Looking at the lyrics...yeah the whiskey line is excellent. Definitely, someone who realizes they have a drinking problem but would rather drink than not. The chorus is classic country. I don't know how you do it Cindy but you do it well. lol...funny bridge. Ah, the last section leads back to the reason he drinks. Very good write Cindy!
