I had every intention of getting hammered here tonight.
I gave my truck keys to the barkeep
Said Dave don't you dare let me drive.
But in the middle of this bottle
I drank my train of thought off track.
So I've gotta stop drinking or start rethinking
My reasoning for throwing 'em back

Cause it's just wasted whiskey
Trying to drink you off of my mind
There aint enough bourbon behind this bar
I aint got that kind of time
So I am going to stand while I can
And raise my glass - toast every time you kissed me
Cause drinking to forget about you is wasted whiskey.

So here's to new beginnings and to the memories
And cheers to your momma and daddy
Cause they were right about you and me.
And here's to Millsap on the juke box
And to your new friends you found
And here's to our joint account MasterCard
Cause I'm buying the whole house a round.

Cause it's just wasted whiskey
Trying to drink you off of my mind
There aint enough bourbon behind this bar
I aint got that kind of time
So I am going to stand while I can
And raise my glass - toast every time you kissed me
Cause drinking to forget about you is wasted whiskey.

[INTERLUDE] Here, I'll take another...

It's just wasted whiskey
Trying to drink you off my mind
There aint enough bourbon behind this bar
I aint got that kind of time
I am going to stand while I can
And raise my glass -
And toast every single time you ever kissed me.

Cause drinking to forget about you is wasted whiskey.

Cause drinking to forget about you -
Well that's just wasted whiskey.

[Spoken] Hey Dave, I think I got me a ride home -
Thanks ol buddy - I'll get my truck tomorrow.
See y'all
