Everybody down in Houston calls him Texas
Everybody way up north calls him cornbread
You should've heard the way that his mama called him baby
Daddy called him boy, his friends call him crazy


Shoulda just called it like I saw it
Shoulda just called for help and ran like hell that day
The burn and the sting and the high and the heat
And the left me wanting more feeling when he kissed me
I shoulda just called him whiskey

Warmed my body to the core just like a blanket
It tasted so sweet that you took my breath away
Hit me so hard like a rock through a window
I knew I was in trouble from the moment I met you, boy

Shoulda just called it like I saw it
Shoulda just called for help and ran like hell that day

The burn and the sting and the high and the heat
And the left me wanting more feeling when he kissed me
I shoulda just called him whiskey

Now the note set in
He's gone like the wind
And I can barely feel the pain

Shoulda just called it like I saw it
I shoulda just called for help and ran like hell that day
The burn and the sting and the high and the heat
And the left me wanting more feeling when he kissed me

Oh the burn and the sting and the high and the heat
And the left me wanting more feeling when he kissed me
I shoulda just called him whiskey (3x)
