    The seat of my pants is slick from my barstool, And my hand’s in the shape of a glass
    My eyes look like a road-map of Georgia, And it’s a shame I’ve lost my class
    One broken heart can do strange things. To a fellow who can’t take pain
    But in this hundred proof condition, I’m in no position to take her back again

    Sorrow on the Rocks artist Porter Wagoner

    Scotch and soda, mud in your eye,
    Baby do I feel high?
    Oh me, oh my, Do I feel high?
    Dry martini, Jigger of gin,
    Oh, what a spell you’ve got me in,
    Oh my, Do I feel High

    Scotch and Soda artists The Kingston Trio

    But here I am again mixing misery and gin
    Sitting with all my friends and talking to myself.
    I look like I’m having a good time but any fool can tell
    That this honky-tonk heaven really makes you feel, like hell

    Misery and Gin Singer Merle Haggard, Writers John Robert Durrill, Snuff Garrett
