She's a small town hard working woman just trying to make a living
Working three jobs, feeding four little mouths in a rundown kitchen
When you're never taking nothing and doing nothing but giving
It's hard to be a good wife and a good mom and a good Christian

She said I don't drink, but sometimes I need a stiff drink
Sipping from a highball glass, let the world fade away
She said I don't smoke, but sometimes I need a long drag
Yeah I know it might sound bad, but sometimes I need a smoke break

He's a big city hard working man just trying to climb the ladder
First generation to go to college instead of driving a tractor
Never had nothing handed to him on a silver platter
It's hard to be a good man, good son, do something good that matters

He said I don't drink, but sometimes I wanna pop that top
Take a swig and make the world stop and watch it fade away
He said I don't smoke, but sometimes I wanna light it up
Yeah when things get tough, sometimes I need a smoke break

So here's to you and here's to when the day gets long
Go ahead, I understand if you wanna take a load off

I don't drink, but sometimes I need a stiff drink
Sipping from a highball glass, let the world fade away
Yeah and I don't smoke, but sometimes I need a long drag
Yeah I know it might sound bad, but sometimes I need a, sometimes I need a

When the day gets long, when the work's all done
When the sun sets, when you need to forget
Grab that cup, fill it up
Sip it slow, and let it all go
