"Old Town New" as written by Darrell Scott and Bruce Robison....
There's a bottle on the dresser by your ring
And it's empty, so right now I don't feel a thing
I'll be hurtin' when I wake up on the floor
And I'll be over it by noon
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

Come tomorrow, I can walk in any store
It ain't a problem
Yeah, they'll always sell me more
But your forgiveness is something I can't buy
Ain't a thing that I can do
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

[Chorus:]
One's the devil, and one keeps driving me insane
At times I wonder if they ain't both the same
One's a liar that helps hide me from my pain
And one's a long, hard, bitter truth
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

I've got a problem but it ain't like what you think
I drink 'cause I'm lonesome, and I'm lonesome 'cause I drink
If I don't break down and bring it on myself, it'll hit right out of the blue
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

[Chorus]

Yeah, that's the difference between the whiskey and you

    General CommentBeing stuck in a town with memories of a love lost. Its filled with memories of the one you want back, and it makes things tough day and night. Everything you do and everyone you know just remind you of her. You want to leave but after all its your home. good song.
