- Lyrics"How old do you think I am?" he said
I said, Well, I didn't know
He said, "I turned 65 about 11 months ago"
I was sittin' in Miami pourin' blended whiskey down
When this old gray black gentleman was cleanin' up the lounge
- LyricsIn some of my songs I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to drink beer
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears
I like beer it makes me a jolly good fellow
- LyricsI love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucks
Slow movin' trains and rain
I love little country streams, sleep without dreams
Sunday school in May and hay
And I love you too
- LyricsI remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
They said for the last two weeks that he suffered and cried
It made a big impression on me, although I was a barefoot kid
They said, he got religion at the end and Im glad that he did
Clayton was the best guitar picker in our town
- LyricsOne time I spent a week inside a little country jail
And I don't guess I'll ever live it down
I was sittin' at a red light when these two men came and got me
And said that I was speeding through their town
Well, they said,"Tomorrow morning you can see the judge then go"
