Smoke on the street, fire in the water,
That wasn't me last night
One for the girl, make it a double,
That wasn't me last night

That was the whiskey in a little red dress
Putting on a show that you won't forget, that was the whiskey
That was the whiskey with a trucker hat
J├Ągermeister girl on her back, that was the whiskey
Well that girl might've looked a hell of a lot like me,
But that was the whiskey

My sister called, neighbors are talking,
That wasn't me last night
Broken details, broncos and brawlers,
A new record set last night

That was the whiskey, with her skirt hiked up
Stiletto heels in a pick up truck, that was the whiskey
That was the whiskey, with lies on her lips
Shaking her feathers with her hands on her hips, that was the whiskey
Well that girl might've looked a hell of a lot like me,
But that was the whiskey

Wait staff has a picture of some girl singing with the band
Bobby McGee in the key of C, Johnny Walker in her hand

That was the whiskey
That was the whiskey

That was the whiskey, tearing down the house
Like a blue-eyed bell from the deep deep south, that was the whiskey
That was the whiskey, shouting out last call knowing
Sunday morning will save us all, that was the whiskey

Well that girl might've looked a hell of a lot like me
Don't believe everything you see
Cause that was the whiskey
