lyrics

you can call me a gin soak
you can call me a lush
you can call me anything you want
it can't harsh my buzz
life is for the living and I'm living it up
can't nobody judge you when you just don't give a...

sitting at the bar putting back a few
must have drank myself a 6 pack or two
heard some fools next to me
trying to talk some trash
couldn't seem to pay no heed
as I ordered another glass

you can call me a booze hound
you can call me a drunk...

when it came down to closing time
when 2 o'clock came round
didn't feel a bit sick or dizzy
felt solid as the ground
got up off of my barstool
walked across the floor
feeling loose and satisfied
as i stepped out the door

you can call me a wino
you can call me a bum...

woke up this morning
wrapped in a hazy peace
hit the snooze button
and I went back to sleep
I've tried clean living
I've tried all kinds of things
but traveling by wagon
just aint the life for me

you can call me a ginsoak
you can call me a lush...

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
