Thanks again for the bourbon and the bed
Now it’s time to rest my head
Where do you turn when you’re down and out?
Gotta find a stranger who can help you out

Trouble walks in and she sits at the bar
Drinkin’ more Bulleit’s gonna make me a star
Juke joint walls and the tales they tell
A long list of fellas who went to hell

End of the night and the bar is full
Broads on tables don’t take no bull
I don’t know what I’ve been told
Wouldn’t trade a bourbon for a pot of gold

Don’t know a soul in this one horse town
Stranger walks in and she buys me a round
No idea where I’m gonna crash
Brings me back to share her stash

Then she says, she just left jail
Petty drug crime and she’s out on bail
Gotta hit the hay - gotta make the most
Gotta wake up before my host

Last thing I do before I hit the road
Write a little letter and I leave it on her head
Thanks again for the bourbon and the bed (4x)
