Song Description

The title track from The Dudes first CD

Story Behind the Song

Stevie DuPree's personal views on the Demon Alcohol. Odd things can happen while under the influence and I'm sure we can all relate to this song.

Lyrics

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH


There are some things that I?ll tell you and some things that I won?t
There are some things I remember and some things that I don?t
About the time that I?ve spent dancing with that Demon Alcohol
There are some things I don?t want to know at all

I have spent some hard earned money on cocaine, pot and pills
I have spent some time euphoric. I have tasted their cheap thrills
I have walked away from all of those but that liquor on the shelf
And when it calls, I just can?t help myself

It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life
It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life
It can cost you fame and fortune ? family, friends and wife
It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life

I?ve spent time in sharp denial as if it were a game
I?ve spent time in such a stupor I could not recall my name
I?ve been ten foot tall & bulletproof and I?ve been pretty small
And all the credit goes to that Demon Alcohol

I have drank the bottle empty ? seen all the spirits gone
I have woken up at 3 AM with all my clothes still on
Start the morning with a headache like the sharp edge of a knife
It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life

It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life
It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life
It can cost you fame and fortune ? family, friends and wife
It?s a hard Demon to chase out of your life
