As I watch the sun
Set slowly, I hold back the tears
And I can't help but wonder
Why the Lord had to put me here

'Caused I've raised hell
All night long
And I've seen a good
Man go wrong

And I can't help
The way that I am
'Cause the whiskey, weed and women
Had the upper hand

Livin' lonely
Is the life that I been livin'
I got drunk
The day my paw went to prison

And when my mama died
I just didn't care about livin'
And I drank myself blind
Just tryin' to find a good reason

And I've raised hell
All night long
And I've seen a good
Man go wrong

And I can't help
The way that I am
'Cause the whiskey, weed and women
Have the upper hand

Yeah, the whiskey weed and women
Have the upper hand, hand, hand
