Lyrics

Lawyers & Liquor by Eric HessAc

Sitting on this barstool with my only friends
Cold beer and whiskey, my cell phone's ringing again
My attorney Joe he called me up to say I was due back in court
Don't know how I took all the blame, for this no fault divorce

Chorus
It's all lawyers and liquor, since you left me here
Sitting in this honky-tonk with a cell phone in my ear
My attorney keeps a running tab and my bar bill's way too long
It's all Lawyers and Liquor, since you've been gone

How I'll pay this phone bill, ain't exactly clear
But I could save on minutes, if my attorney would meet me here
Kill two birds with a single stone, save some money and have someone
To talk about my troubles with and what a bitch you had become

Chorus
It's all lawyers and liquor, since you left me here
Sitting in this honky-tonk drinking all this beer
My barmaid keeps a running tab and my phone bill's still too long
It's all Lawyers and Liquor, since you've been gone

Haven't seen my attorney friend, in a couple of days
That ain't like him and besides I know he must want paid
I'd like to see old Joe and raise a glass to my new life
But I think that dirty rounder, done run off with my new ex-wife

Chorus
It's all lawyers and liquor, since you left me here
Sitting in this honky-tonk with a cell phone in my ear
Bartender, pour another round, my divorce took too damn long
It's all Lawyers and Liquor, since you've been gone

real fun sing along song
