Uncle Tupelo - Whiskey Bottle

Persuaded, paraded, enebriated, and down
Still aware of everything life carries on without
'Cause there's one too many faces with dollar sign smiles
I got to find the shortest path to the bar for a while

A long way from happiness in a three hour away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus, not forever, just for now
Not forever, just for now

There's a trouble around, it's never far away
The same trouble's been around for a life and a day
Oh I can't forget the sound, 'cause it's here to stay
The sound of people chasing money and money getting away

A long way from happiness in a three hour away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus, not forever, just for now
Not forever, just for now

In between the dirt disgust there must be
Some air to breathe and something to believe
Liquor and guns, the sign says quite plain
Somehow life goes on in a place so insane

A long way from happiness in a three hour away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus, not forever, just for now
Not forever, just for now
