Thanks again for the bourbon and the bed
Now it’s time to rest my head
Where do you turn when you’re down and out?
Gotta find a stranger who can help you out

Trouble walks in and she sits at the bar
Drinkin’ more Bulleit’s gonna make me a star
(ooh ooh ya)
Juke joint walls, the tales they tell
(ooh ooh oh)
A long list of boys that went to hell
(hey ya ya)

End of the night and the bar is full
(where ya at boy?)
Broads on tables don’t take no bull
(don't give me no bullshit)
I don’t know what you’ve been told
(I don't know what you've been told)
Won’t trade my bourbon for a pot of gold
(hey! hey!)

Don’t know a soul in this one-horse town
(lookin' for someone)
Stranger walks in and she buys me a round
(can I get you that, boy?)
No idea where I’m gonna crash
(boy I've got a good idea)
Brings me back to share her stash
(hey yeah!)

Then she says, she just left jail
Petty drug crime and she’s out on bail
Gotta hit the hay - get up with the sun
Livin’ on the road is like livin’ on the run
(hey! hey!)

Last thing I do ‘fore I skip town
(last thing he did 'fore he skipped town)
I grab a pen & paper, and I write this down:
(got a note, this what it read)
“Thanks again for the bourbon and the bed” (4x)
(said "thanks again for the bourbon and the bed!")
