I bought this rhinestone suit in California
These boots came all the way from Mexico
And this Cadillac ain't nothin' son you should see the Greyhound
I bought to take my band from show to show
Oh you've seen my face a thousand times on TV
Or heard me on your local radio
And in your eyes I see the admiration for me
But son there's something that you ought to know

I've got to take a drink to keep from shaking
Oh motel rooms ain't nothing like a home
And money can't make love grow any stronger
When you leave your woman home alone
She can't raise the children with no daddy
She can't love a man that's always gone
It takes a whole lot more than pride
To keep your feelings locked inside
While you sing another pretty country song
[ steel ]
Yes I've got to take a drink to keep from shaking...
While I sing another pretty country song
