Whiskey On My Brain

I was looking for a song for tonight…listened to a few from Deep Purple, ZZ Top, Dio and then settled on this, which makes no sense at all when you consider the others.

Probably one of the prettiest songs every performed (in my book)…..

Willy Porter from the Dog Eared Dream record.

(I see he is playing in Charleston in a few weeks…maybe a road trip with my Jelly & Cole?

lyrics:

She, she really loves simple things
Can’t afford no diamond rings
And wouldn’t wear ’em if she could
She, she hits me like a cool summer rain
Then she’s gone on the wind
I can hear her whisper in the wood

Chorus
I can hear the ocean
When I look into her eyes
My heart is swept away
Like a paper boat on the tide
I’m destined to run aground
With her by my side
Together we’ll wake up
To a watercolor sunrise

She, she’s been running in the rain
She’s like whiskey on my brain
She makes me feel so high
She, she’s got holes in her stockings
Now she’s up and unlocking the door for me

Chorus

Bridge
No one really knows where she’s from
She comes and she goes
Like a watercolor bleeds and runs away
What am I afraid of? Here she comes

She, she really loves simple things
Can’t afford no diamond rings
And wouldn’t wear them if she could
She, she’s got holes in her stockings
Now she’s on the back porch rocking
The baby to sleep

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
