Jack Daniels In My Arms

My life has had its share of ups and downs
I've kissed gals made up like rodeo clowns
When ever I go out in search of company
I wake up with an empty bottle next to me
It's safe to say that if I wasn't such a boozer
When I found a girl I wouldn't have to lose her
I always had a vision of what true love would be
And I would find a girl that would be right for me
I dreamed I took home a woman who's soft and warm
But, I woke up with Jack Daniels in my arms
I tried and tried everything that I could do
To find happiness with someone new
Try as I might, it seems to be my destiny
To wake up with that bottle next to me
(Instrumental and Ad-lib)
I woke up with Jack Daniels in my arms
I woke up with Jack Daniels in my arms
