4th Place, July/August 2015 Contest: “DUI”

4th Place
“DUI”
Chris Fears
Southaven, Mississippi
For three days this barstool
has been my only friend
There’s no turning back now
you and I have come to an end

I been shaking these bottles
hoping what I heard is not true
I’m set on cruise control
drinking, under the influence of you

So Pour me some Bourbon, Bacardi, or Rum
Whatever you have just give me some
Give me a shot of whiskey rye
keep em coming just to get me by
I’ll be drinking and drivin’ tonight
Your gonna drive me crazy
while I drink, under the influence of you

I figured you would have
called me up by now
I just don’t know why
you and I can’t work it out

Nobody can turn them up
any higher than I do
My hearts in overdrive
drinking, under the influence of you

So Pour me some Bourbon, Bacardi, or Rum
Whatever you have just give me some
Give me a shot of whiskey rye
keep em coming just to get me by
I’ll be drinking and drivin’ tonight
Your gonna drive me crazy
while I drink, under the influence of you

I’m gonna drink some tequila…
maybe add a little lime
It’s going to help me
one sip at a time…

So pour me some Bourbon, Bacardi, or Rum
Whatever you have just give me some
Give me a shot of whiskey rye
keep em coming just to get me by
I’ll be drinking and drivin’ tonight
Your gonna drive me crazy
while I drink, under the influence of you

Well I’ll be drinking and drivin’ tonight
Your gonna drive me crazy
while I drink, under the influence of you
