Jerry Jeff Walker – Backsliders Wine lyrics

Well as the rain ruins my alibi
I'm down to telling you my red-eyed mind
It's not that sun bright path
That calls me from my home
It's just that fine~
Backslider's wine

My momma sings loud in my memory
"Oh Son don't wear no black eye shine.
Fight for your rights;
But don't just fight for right
And do not drink Backslider's wine. "

But I took myself for a strong and loving soul
'Til I found myself face down on a bar room floor
Crying "My God, what has become of me,
I do not drink Backslider's wine no more? "

My momma sings out in my memory
"Oh Son don't take no black eye shine.
Fight for your rights;
But don't just fight for right
And do not drink Backslider's wine. "

God do not drink
Backslider's Wine
