23

Simple as my mama said when I was very young She told me not to worry son One day, you'll be someone But here I am at 21 As loaded as a stagecoach shotgun I'm sorry mama Please don't look at me ♪ When I got to Oklahoma I was 17 My papa taught me how to work and Lord, he was mean Working all day in that August heat He taught me how to fish My uncle taught me how to drink Well, I went California and I had me a band And we played in all the bars in all the southern lands We played all night, and we drank for free All of my boys and me Now I'm 23 and there ain't nobody who can drink like me Soon I'll be 24 and the Lord knows that I can't drink no more I know I shoulda taken it slow It's not the way that my life goes Now I know ♪ When you're passed out on the floor You're sober by 24 ♪ Well, I had a girl who loved me the whole damn time And I'd drink my whiskey and she'd drink wine But soon my bottle was too much to comfort me ♪ Yeah, we'd sit on the river and we'd fish all day And we'd drive across the country, let the radio play Seven damn years, I never thought she'd leave ♪ Now I'm 23 and there ain't nobody who can drink like me Soon I'll be 24 and the Lord knows that I can't drink no more I know I shoulda taken it slow It's not the way that my life goes Lord, I know ♪ When you're passed out on the floor You're sober by 24 ♪ Simple as my mama said when I was very young She told me not to worry son One day you'll be someone But here I am at 21 As loaded as a stagecoach shotgun I'm sorry mama Please don't look at me
