"He Can't Quit Her" as written by Edward Monroe Hill and Casey Michael Beathard....
She was cool, she was hot
She was smokin' a lot
At the end of the bar
She had more than one
Too many buttons undone
On that blouse she wore

Starin' too long
At her lost in that Skynyrd song
Was his first mistake
And when she shot him that
'Boy you don't want none of this' look
It was way too late

She's like a needle to a junkie
She's like whiskey to a drunk
She's like poker to a gambler
She's like a bullet in a gun
She's in his blood
He can't explain the rush when he gets with her
Might be the death of him, but he's addicted man
He can't quit her

Well she'd come to his house
And he'd tell her she belonged just with him
She'd get up, she'd get dressed
Take five hundred, no less
And then leave again

He said, "Baby, I'll take care of you.
Can't stand the thought of sharing you
With them other guys."
Well she'd laugh and say
"Well, maybe you shouldn't call me no more than, baby."
And he didn't that first night.

She's like a needle to a junkie
She's like whiskey to a drunk
She's like poker to a gambler
She's like a bullet in a gun
She's in his blood
He can't explain the rush when he gets with her
Might be the death of him, but he's addicted man
He can't quit her

She's in his blood
He can't explain the rush when he gets with her
Might be the death of him, but he's addicted man
He can't quit her

She was cool, she was hot
She was walkin' cross the parking lot
With some other guy

Well, he was jealous, he was jonesin'
And he wound up on the wrong end of a .45

    General CommentWhat a great comparison for what a woman can do to a man:

    "She's like a needle to a junkie
    She's like whiskey to a drunk
    She's like poker to a gambler
    She's like a bullet in a gun
    She's in his blood
    He can't explain the rush when he gets with her
    Might be the death of him, but he's addicted man
    He can't quit her"

    General Commenti think its about a guy hooks up with a girl and he started to get real feelings for her but she didnt think anything of it excapt that it was just a hook up, nothing more.
    and he killed him self when she told him that she didnt want to settle down with him.

    General CommentIt's a song about a man who became so in love with a prostitute that "he can't quit her" despite her not loving him back. In the end, he commits suicide with a .45 calliber gun.
    A haunting song by Allan that really shows grasp women could have on men, especially when they're beautiful and seductive. Love the comparison of the woman to drugs, whiskey and a gun, it goes to show how dangerous love can be with the wrong person.
