"Women Without Whiskey" as written by and Patterson Hood/mike Cooley/ Earl Hicks/rob Malone/brad Morgan....
If I make it through this year, I think I'm gonna put this bottle down
Maybe as time goes on I'll learn to miss it less than I do now
Think I'm gonna tell her that I'm gonna go away for a while
'Til I can get this demon out

You know the bottle ain't to blame and I ain't trying to
It don't make you do a thing it just lets you
When I'm six feet underground, I'll need a drink or two
And I'll sure miss you

Take me piece by piece till there ain't nothing left worth taking away from me

The highway's humming in my head and it's hard to hear
Won't you read my lips if I pull you near enough
Could you read my fortune in the bottom of this coffee cup
Tell me how to tell when I've had enough

If morning's a bitch with open arms and night's a girl who's gone to far
Whiskey is harder to keep than a woman and it's half as sweet but
Women without whiskey, Women without whiskey
Whiskey is hard to beat
Whiskey is hard to beat

    General CommentGreatest opening line ever in a song!!! This guy's got a heck of a choice to make. His girl or his liquor. And he chooses liquor. Love this line: When I'm six feet underground, I'll need a drink or two
    And I'll sure miss you

    This is an alcoholic's anthem.

    General CommentI've been listening to this song obsessively so I thought I'd comment on it. By far my favorite line is "If morning's a bitch with open arms and night's a girl who's gone to far, Whiskey is harder to keep than a woman and it's half as sweet..."

    Obviously the song is about making a choice between his woman or his whiskey. In the line that I mentioned, he seems to be comparing his state of mind/sobriety to specific types of women, which I think is brilliant. Morning is a bitch with open arms meaning that he is probably hungover, but with the possibility of either changing his ways/not drinking anymore (or maybe the open arms are inviting him to drink more...?). Night is a girl that has gone too far is his drinking way too much at night and not knowing when to stop which he mentions as a problem elsewhere in the song. Brilliant!
