Joe Stampley – Whiskey Chasin’ Lyrics

Looks like this bad rainy weather
Kept every one else in
I’d hoped someone would come along
And fill the space in me where your love’s been
I’m sittin’ in a bar in the middle of the day
Just whiskey chasin’ all my troubles away

Another shot of southern comfort
Some water on the side
It’s crazy when a man allows himself
To be so taken for a ride
But love is so strong it does what it wants to
I’m whiskey chasin’ memories of me and you

The music in the background sounds like it’s pouring out of my heart
Seems like everytime the saddest song has played
A sadder one will start

I wonder what’s happening in the bar across the street
There’s got to be a place in town where brokenhearted people go and meet
Hey friend another round when you’re down at this end
I’m whiskey chasin’ the world away again

I need some more southern comfort when you’re down at this end
I’m whiskey chasin’ my troubles away again

I’m whiskey chasin’ my troubles away again
