Song Description

About giving up drinking going to rehab

Story Behind the Song

Code language between producer and myself..Hank Willams one..but modern. Thats what it is, open E or G tuning I believe to have used..you never have to explain that in Nashville, always leave room for musicians to show their craftman ship...dobro, slide, banjo..bring it on! Typical easy chorus and a story with a twist..like the great Hank Williams..but with a modern twist.

Lyrics

Whiskey and lime

Travelling the lost highway
Falling from grace
Speeding thru the twilights
I arrived at this place
She was sitting with her back to me
I did not have a dime
But all she asked for was a whiskey and lime

Chorus:
Whiskey and lime
Leave all your sorrows
Forget about tomorrow
Whisky and lime

We spent some time together
Breaking our promises
On the road to ruin
We arrived at this place
She was sitting with her back to me
We did not have a dime
But all we ordered was whiskey and lime

Chorus

I was getting tired of her
She was wearing me down
Back on the lost highway
I arrived at this town
No one seemed to bother
No one seemed to care
All that I ordered was whiskey and lime

Chorus

When I look into the mirror
Seeing my old face
Too long on the lost highway
I arrived at this place
They all looked to me
No one had a dime
All they said: here no whiskey and lime !

Chorus
