Gimme Some

Bud and Travis

Beer and whiskey, whiskey and beer

Makes your head start achin', makes your eyes unclear
A                    E                             A 
Makes you spend your money, turns you blind and dumb
Gimme some

Strong tobacco, cigarette smoke
What a dirty habit, makes you damn near choke
Fills your lungs with poison, makes your brain go numb
Gimme some

Will I ever get smart? I doubt it

Tell me somethin's bad and I can't live without it

Pretty women, blue-eyed or brown
How they drive you crazy, how they pull you down
Soon they're fat and happy, you're a worn-out bum
Gimme some, gimme some

Bread and gravy, chicken chow mein
Too much fancy eatin' only brings you pain
Doctor says "Hold on, there! Not another crumb!"
Gimme some

Will I ever get smart? I doubt it
Tell me somethin's bad and I can't live without it

Dice and poker, blackjack and dice
Start to win a little, get to feelin' nice
Bet it all and roll 'em: "Snake eyes! Sorry, chum!"
Gimme some

Beer and whiskey, whiskey and beer
Makes your head start achin', makes your eyes unclear
Makes you spend your money, turns you blind and dumb
