"Whiskey Bent And Hell Bound" as written by and Kyle D./williams Sanders....
I've got a good woman at home
Who thinks I do no wrong
But sometimes, Lord, she just ain't always around
And you know that's when I fall
Now I can't help myself at all
And I get whiskey bent and hell bound

Play me some songs about a ramblin' man
Put a cold one in my hand
'Cause you know I love to hear those guitar sounds
Don't you play, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"
'Cause I'll get all balled up inside
And I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Sure enough about closin' time
'Bout stoned out of my mind
And I end up with some honkytonk special I found
Just as sure as the mornin' sun comes
Thinkin of my sweet girl at home
And I need to get whiskey bent and hell bound

Play me the songs about a ramblin' man
Put old Jim Beam in my hand
'Cause you know I still love to get drunk
And hear country sounds
But don't you play, "Your Cheatin' Heart"
'Cause that'll tear me all apart
I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Yeah, old Hank's songs
Always make me feel low down

    General CommentA great song about regreting getting drunk and cheating on his wife, but under the surface it's revealed that the pain that causes him to drink is from the loss of his dad.

    While that would be very hard on anybody, it's made unbearable to hear his dad pouring his heart out in songs like So Lonesome I Could Cry, or Your Cheatin' Heart.
