I knew the first time should've been the last time
I ever let the whiskey touch my lips
'Cause the devil wears black and he goes by Jack
And he's really good at helpin' me forget

I thought it was cool when I was a kid
Walkin' around with that cigarette lit
On that ol' dirt road, I lit my first smoke
And I knew right then it wouldn't let me go

[Chorus]
And it's all or nothin'
So keep it comin'
Let that feelin' run through my veins
Ain't no stoppin', keep on rockin', yeah
It seems I'm always
Yeah, I'm always
Pickin' up what I can't put down
Yeah, I'm always
Pickin' up what I can't put, can't put, can't put down

She looked my way then looked back again
Gotta different kinda high when I touched her skin
When she laid it on me, she rocked my world
I knew I'd never get away from that girl
Repeat Chorus

When I walked into my first smoky bar
Cranked up the amp and played this guitar
Had 'em singin' along by the end of the night
And I knew I finally got one thing right

[Chorus]
And it's all or nothin'
So keep it comin'
Let that feelin' run through my veins
Ain't no stoppin', keep on rockin', yeah
It seems I'm always
Yeah, I'm always
Pickin' up what I can't put down
Yeah, I'm always
Pickin' up what I can't put, can't put, can't put down

Yeah, I'm always
Pickin' up what I can't put, can't put, can't put down
Yeah, yeah, I wanna put it down
