Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies
One leads to another
On a Saturday night
Don't you cross your heart
Unless you hope to die
Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies

Well the first drop burns
But the second one goes down smooth
Then that old black label
Gets ahold of you
It loosens your tongue
But it never tells the truth

Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies
One leads to another
On a Saturday night
Don't you cross your heart
Unless you hope to die
Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies

When the bottle starts talking
Be careful what he might say
He talks in the dark
Like he never would in the day
Then he gets in trouble
Just as soon as he gets away

Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies
One leads to another
On a Saturday night
Don't you cross your heart
Unless you hope to die
Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies

Well, a little white lie
Don't mean anyone no good
When it's making the rounds
All over the neighborhood
Next thing you know
You're all misunderstood

When you're drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies
One leads to another
On a Saturday night
Don't you cross your heart
Unless you hope to die
Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies
Drinkin' dark whiskey
Telling white lies
