Diesel And Whiskey

lyrics

I should have known
We’d come to this
I never thought we’d last this long
You were wrong
I was young
I never felt like that before
You’ll drink
And I’ll drive
We’re both just looking for a sign
There’s white lines
Green lights
You can shout and I can leave my woes behind

On the long long road
That we always seem to follow
There’s a place thats waiting to be found
And we might be hurting and we might be proud but baby
Diesel and whiskey make the world go round
Diesel and whiskey make the world go round

I was quicker
When I drank liquor
I funny I was strong
You couldn’t fall
With your back against the wall
You were good enough to tell me I was wrong
Four wheels
They let you feel
They let you see the open road
While you wept
I kept every
Every picture every memory that we made together

On the long long road
That we always seem to follow
There’s a place thats waiting to be found
And we might be hurting and we might be proud but baby
Diesel and whiskey make the world go round
Diesel and whiskey make the world go round

Jim Beam makes you mean
And cigarettes they make you calm
A big chassi and four wheels might make you happy
If you fix that old transmission you can lose your inhibitions cos
Third gear
Brings a tear
Burned out in winter rain
Wake up and take your best shot baby
Mornings were the best you got, nothings gonna let you on the

On the long long road
That we always seem to follow
There’s a place thats waiting to be found
And we might be hurting and we might be proud but baby
Diesel and whiskey make the world go round
Diesel and whiskey make the world go round
