lyrics

Sweet Savannah, you’re the only one
To leave me staring down the wrong end of a gun
A couple shiners and a whiskey haze
That's got the room spinning round
A whiff of cocaine and lightning in my veins
I told my mama that her boy ain't changed
I've got little white pills to give me the strength of thirteen men

You always loved that old Motown song
I smashed the jukebox, blood running down my arm
I couldn't feel a thing so we just laughed and sang along
Shots rang, bang bang bang, to the rhythm of the song
While James Brown sang
You've got a choice, pretty baby, that you've gotta make
To burn out and leave a beautiful corpse or just fade away

This kinda living ain't good for your soul
You get a taste and you lose control
Crash your Cadillac into a red oak tree
Tom Petty blasting on the radio, “I won’t back down”
Bottle of red, a case of the blues
Bloodshot, burnt out, battered, and bruised
I looked into the mirror
And the face that I saw was not my own

(Chorus)
