"It Won't Hurt" as written by and Dwight Yoakam....
[Chorus]
It won't hurt when I fall down from this bar stool
And it won't hurt when I stumble in the street
It won't hurt 'cause this whiskey eases misery
But even whiskey cannot ease your hurting me

Today I had another bout with sorrow
You know this time I almost won
If this bottle would just hold out 'til tomorrow
I know that I'd have sorrow on the run

[Chorus]

It won't hurt when I fall down from this bar stool
And it won't hurt when I stumble in the street
It won't hurt 'cause this whiskey eases misery
But even whiskey cannot ease your hurting me

Your memory comes back up with each sunrise
I reach out for the bottle and find it's gone
Yeah, Lord, somewhere every night the whiskey leaves me
To face this cold, cold world on my own

[Chorus]

It won't hurt when I fall down from this bar stool
And it won't hurt when I stumble in the street
It won't hurt 'cause this whiskey eases misery
But even whiskey cannot ease your hurting me

    How true, how true.

    A song about a man who has lost just about everything and tries to drown his sorrows and not even that helps. A typical countrysong.

    General CommentIt is about the numbing effect Wiskey has on the heart and body, as well as the lack of numbing in has with one particular girl I suppose. It also talks about Sorrow, which ole Dwight talks about throughout his songs.
