Songwriter: Jackson, Alan

Well, I drove down to the ocean
Left my heartache way behind
But the rain won't leave, the pain won't ease
And the sun don't wanna shine

So I ordered me up a killer
Found a view out across the sea
I sat down in the sand, a drink in my hand
And the glass lookin' back at me

I got a bug in my margarita
Seems bad luck won't leave me alone
I've got a woman I'm tryin' to drink away
And I've got a long, long way to go
Yeah, I've got a long, long way to go

Well, I met an ol' boy from Georgia
His woman done knocked him down
I asked him how he's doin', he stared at me confused
And said, "Hey, can't you look around?"

He said "The rain won't leave, the pain won't ease
"And the sun don't wanna shine
"And there's somethin' in the bottom of this drink I've just gotten
"And it don't look like a worm to me

"I got a bug in my margarita
Seems bad luck won't leave me alone
I've got a woman I'm tryin' to drink away
And I've got a long, long way to go
Yeah, I've got a long, long way to go"

So we put our drinks together, and we toasted rainy weather
And the women that had done us wrong
Then we threw back margaritas, the bugs just made it sweeter
And we both sang a happy song

I got a bug in my margarita
Seems bad luck won't leave me alone
I've got a woman I'm tryin' to drink away
And I've got a long, long way to go

Yeah, I got a bug in my margarita
Seems bad luck won't leave me alone
I've got a woman I'm tryin' to drink away
And I've got a long, long way to go

Yeah, I got a bug in my margarita
Seems bad luck won't leave me alone
I've got a woman I'm tryin' to drink away
And I've got a long, long way to go
Yeah, I got a long, long way to go
