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
