Track Name: I Can Do Anything
Come on boys, let’s have some fun
You buy this round, I’ve got the next one
Here’s to good times! Now drink it down!
And let’s move on to that next round

Come on boys, now gather round
Let’s get riled up let’s make some sound
Let’s fight, let’s kick, let’s get thrown it around
Living high, we’re never comin’ down

You won’t believe
But with my whiskey
I can do anything

Well, I woke up to a splash of cold
In a cell, some prison hold
Though I don’t remember stealing that gold
But I got right out, I made parole

But my wife, she was irate
I don’t know why she’s got to hate
But I’ll bow down and play prostrate
At least until I find me a better mate

You don’t have to believe
But with my whiskey
I can do anything
Just my whiskey
That’s what I need
And I’ll do whatever I damn well please
Track Name: Whiskey Affair
I am in love with a whiskey jug;
I nurse her so precious and sweet.
She is my captor, a lover possessed,
Who takes all I own from me.

I had to chose between my two loves -
My wife or my whiskey affair.
So I thought of the pain I’ve had in my life
And I choose the one who’d been there.

My whiskey and I, we made friend around town.
We had us some great one night stands.
But whiskey is jealous, and wants me for her own,
And I give her whatever she demands.

I had to chose between my two loves -
My wife or my whiskey affair.
So I thought of the pain I’ve had in my life
And I choose the one who’d been there.
Track Name: Have You Seen My Baby?
Woke up late one evening
Your side of bed was freezing
I arose to find my baby
But I could find her at all

I stepped out into my yard
Look for you in the stars
But I didn't see my baby
I didn't see her at all

I couldn’t find my baby
Have you seen my lady?
I don’t why she’s left me
I don’t know where she has gone

I stood on the road then
Looked out towards the ocean
But I didn't see my baby
I didn't see her at all

I climbed the city towers
And watch the people for hours
But I didn’t see my baby
I didn’t see her at all
Track Name: Seventeen Dollars
I went to looking for a place to sleep
A bed to share, some warm company
Seventeen dollars but i needed just one more
Seventeen dollars but i had to sleep alone

I heard love left for another town
So i went out to try to track her down
Seventeen days but i needed just one more
Seventeen days still i didn’t have the time

I tried my best then to figure her out
Talked to all the sad men sitting at the bar
Seventeen fools and we needed just one smart
Seventeen fools and we figure this shit out

I went on a walk to clear my head
I passed out on the street instead
Seventeen drinks and I needed just one more
Seventeen drinks and I needed just one more
Seventeen drinks and I need just one more
Seventeen drinks and I need just one more
Track Name: Fool
Working hard with my head bowed
I missed the alarm when it sounded
I missed the alarm when it tried to warn me

When I was supposed to run away
I didn’t know until it was too late
I didn’t know to leave so I stayed

I guess I missed the warning signs
Too many lies convinced my poor mind
I guess I missed the warning signs
So many lies deceived my weak old eyes

How can I have been so damn dumb
Now I am left here feeling numb
Now I am left alone and feeling numb

I was a fool so I was a fooled
You played it off like we were all cool
Now that it’s over, man I know it…
I’m such a fool
Track Name: I Had To Break Your Heart
Oh my boys I’m gonna drink this down
with a broken heart
Come on boys and help me drink my shame away
And my broken heart

‘Cause my fairest lovers gone
Where I do not know
So come on boys I’m gonna drink my pain away
And my broken heart

In my drink I ask her, "why’ve you left me
with a broken heart?
Come on, my love, just tell me truly
Why you broke my heart.”

She finally answers, “Man, you son of a gun
I didn’t just walk away, I had to run.
Because you wouldn't stop drinking it down
I had to break your heart."
