The Bottle’s Never Empty

Since I can’t have a beer without thinkin’

Who I’d like to fight

I’ll catch up on some news and probably

Stay in for the night

If I kept a bottle, honey,

For every one I drowned

You’d wonder how a body could even

Up and walk around

 

Hail!  Heaven is a place you drink for free

No one remembers the things you said

And you wake up feelin clean

Hail!  Heaven is a place you drink for free

All the things you said you’d do are done

And the bottle’s never empty

 

I can’t have a drink without thinkin’ 

Who I’d like to forget

I know he’s in there somewhere

Waitin for me to slip

Lord, he left me years ago

And he ain’t come back yet

That liquor loves his mem’ry

Even if it’s all we get

 

Hail!  Heaven is a place you drink for free

No one remembers the things you said

And you wake up feelin clean

Hail!  Heaven is a place you drink for free

All the things you said you’d do are done

And the bottle’s never empty

 

Since I can’t have a beer without thinkin

Who I’d like to ____

I shouldn’t grab a cold one

I’ll end up lovestruck

If I had a lover, Lord, I know it wouldn’t help

So don’t you worry, Mama, 

I’ll screw the lid on tight

And love myself

 

Hail!  Heaven is a place you drink for free

No one remembers the things you said

And you wake up feelin clean

Hail!  Heaven is a place you drink for free

All the things you said you’d do are done

And the bottle’s never empty

(Those things you said you’d become 

Ain’t headed for the cemetary

All that you’ve been runnin from 

is really dead and gone

And the bottle’s never empty

No, the bottle’s never empty!)

 

SongBirdies 

Lay down your head, try to get it right

Maybe there’s somethin’ else out there

Maybe just another way down

You’re gonna hold onto somethin’

Even if it brings you down

 

Lay down your head, honey

Ain’t you tired of the mess?

Lay down your head and rest

Oooohooohoohooohooohooohooohooo-oooh, 

Ooohoohoooo

 

Somethin tells me you, darlin

You can’t see the sun,

Well it still comes

Heaven every time it dawns

Reach out your hands you can feel the warmth

 

Reach out your hands, honey

Ain’t you tired of the load?

Lay down your burden low

 

Well, the world may bring you all the way to your knees

BaadaaDee

But the Light will lift you 

 

If you hear them SongBirdies

Playin above your head, better listen in

They’re singing “Hallelujah!  Let love in!”

If you wanna Let Love

Join in

 

Join on in, honey

Can’t you hear that chorus ring?

Aw, it’s ringin out your name 

SHOOT EM UP

Well I shook off the dust

And lay down my weapon

 A shadow come across

To bury the settin sun

’Cause Heaven’d seen what I’d done

 

See I’d heard all about them

Boys that they call

With them sharp shootin’ rifles

They’re carryin’ the law

Guess there ain’t enough for us all

 

So shoot em up, baby

Oh, shoot em all down

Shoot em up, baby

Oh, you can’t save em now

 

Well the sign on the church door 

Says, “Any Shall Pass”

With the Lord as his shepherd,

A man can rest at last

God will forgive his past

 

So shoot em up, baby 

Oh, shoot em all down 

Shoot em up, baby 

Oh, you can’t save em now

 

Somethin’ it shakes near the ground and it’s loaded

Somethin’ to die for

Somthin’ to give

 

It haunts me today

From a long time ago

I can’t close my eyes tightly

With them wretched ghosts

Beggin me to let them go

 

But I shoot em up, baby

Oh, I shoot em all down

I shoot em up, baby

Oh, can’t save em now

No, can’t save em now
