Pills, when they rattle in the bottle gives me chills,
Weed, when it's fillin' up my lungs it's what I need,
Cheap gin, when it's slidin' down and dribblin' on my chin,
It makes me a happy pappy, I jump up and down and clappy,
In that lubricated state I'm livin' in.

Twenty eight days in Tuscon,
Ain't doing me no good.
I can't change the way my brain is arranged,
Lord knows, I wish I could.
At least 12 times, I've walked the 12 steps and I'm,
Always ending up on the wrong foot.
Twenty eight days in Tuscon,
Ain't doing me no good.

Girls, I love the ones that live in cheap motels.
Wives, I've done that dance and just left number five.
The road, the only place that I can still call home.
I love to ride my Harley cause it gets me to the party,
And any seedy place I need to go.


When they let me out tomorrow, as I'm waving to the shrink,
I'll be headin' for the bar to turn my chip in for a drink.


Down home country Blues

"Whiskey" voicing was perfect for this song. The guitars played well; one complementing the other. You chose an appropriate, driving tempo (i.e.. not too fast) for this recording. Guitars were well played. You ("guys") know what you're doing.

i swear, this sounds just like Dan May! Great work!!

excellent voice for the music ... love the track ... its got that excitement that you just feel its a top class song ...

Super grooving Bob Segar Rock and Roll Groove, smoking guitar, love the steel bends lurking just below the surface. Bet this will turn on a club like there's no tomorrow.

Great track. Nice 'n' gutsy vocals and cool country rock tune. The lyrics are grat fun. Thoroughly enjoyed this!

I love this rage, rough neck outlaw country style. Trade my chip in for a drink.. Great slide guitar, quality lyrics got me hooked with the first 28 days in Tuscon

Is this a ZZ top undiscovered tune?

Loved this song
Great chorus hook
nice gritty country sthyle voice

The Singer is very good. Very good voice. The song is nice, I liked it.
