When the lights go down
When you're stuck here in this town
With nowhere to go
So you escape through the radio
And you worked all week
To barely make ends meet

Well, I got a little cash burning holes in my pocket
Foot on the gas, taking off like a rocket

So come on, come on,
Baby, I'm buying
I got enough to last us all night and
You got the kiss that tastes like honey
And I got a little beer money
Tonight, tonight
Baby, we're drinkin'
Let's wake the town that never stops sleeping
You got the kiss that tastes like honey
And I got a little beer money

We can dance in the dark
Blow the speakers out of this car
Light it up, burn it down
Until the morning rolls around
In a field, where we can scream
Get away with almost anything

Yeah, every now and then you gotta raise a little hell
Hope we get lucky and stay out of jail

So come on, come on,
Baby, I'm buying
I got enough to last us all night and
You got the kiss that tastes like honey
And I got a little beer money
Tonight, tonight
Baby, we're drinkin'
Let's wake the town that never stops sleeping
You got the kiss that tastes like honey
And I got a little beer money

So come on, come on,
Baby, I'm buying
I got enough to last us all night and
You got the kiss that tastes like honey
And I got a little bit of beer money
Tonight, tonight
Baby, we're drinkin'
Let's wake the town that never stops sleeping
You got the kiss that tastes like honey
And I got a little beer money

So come on, come on
Yeah, come on, come on

Song facts

"Blair Daley said, 'I've got this title 'Beer Money,' but I don't know exactly what to do with it.' We laughed and joked around about the idea. I know where I grew up in south Georgia, nobody had any money in high school. It was a lot of middle-class to lower-class kids that we all ran with together. That is what the weekends were about: there was nowhere to go and there were no clubs, so it was all about who has the money to come up with the beer and where can we go. It was the same thing in college: you are holding out spending money on food so that you've got enough money that weekend to go to the beer store and have a good time. I think that is the way small-town America still is everywhere. Until you get a certain age and start working a job that pays you some money, you are just trying to keep that last little bit of money together to have some beer money for the weekend.

I think the title completely throws you off from what the music is, and I like that about it. When you look at the title, the music is a very unexpected twist. It's an easy-going feel-good song for people who are sitting in that town with nothing to do. That is the town that I grew up in. There was nothing to do, nothing to choose from, and a lot of times you felt like banging your fist against the wall, and the only release that you had was the weekend to go have a good time with your friends and your girlfriend, and you wanted to go and have some beers. That is what the song is. It's just a feel-good release of that small-town America life and what it's like growing up." - Kip Moore
