John Michael Montgomery – Drink, Swear, Steal & Lie lyrics

I was twelve when daddy said to me
Don't take to drinkin boy that road don't lead nowhere
And don't you ever let me hear you swear
Don't you dare

He told me stealing is a lazy man's way
Something for nothing leaves you hell to pay
So don't lie, then you can look the whole world in the eye
Honey I've tried

But since I've met you girl I'm breakin every rule
I must confess I'm just a backsliding fool

CHORUS:
I want to drink from your loving cup
Swear I'll never give you up
Steal all your kisses underneath the moon
I want to lie here close to you
Look what you make me do

Darlin you're the reason why
I drink, swear, steal and lie

Last night I threw away your twelve step book
I finally faced the fact that I am hooked on you
There's nothing more that I can do
Ain't no use

Cause every time I see your angel face
My anger disappears without a trace
I swear, girl I admit I haven't got a prayer
But I don't care

Well I know this ain't exactly how I was raised
But heaven help me honey, I ain't changing my ways

REPEAT CHORUS (2 x's)

Drink, swear, steal, lie
