"Daddy Needs A Drink" as written by and Brad Morgan Patterson Hood....
Daddy needs a drink to deal with all the beauty
To deal with all the madness to keep from blowing up
Daddy needs a drink to calm down the badness
To execute his gladness on the fullness of his cup

Daddy needs a drink to keep the wheels from rubbing
To compensate for nothing or nothing going on

Daddy needs a drink so Mama fix one quick
Pour it nice and strong with your cleaning outfit on

Daddy needs a drink to hem in his demons
To hear through baby screaming or the TV set turned on
There ain't nothing on the radio like the wave my transmitter's on
Put that drinking jacket on and enjoy a little fog

    General CommentThe father in this song is obviously doing what he can to keep sane and hold his relationships and life together... sometimes you just have to take the edge off. Its not healthy but sometimes its all we have.

    General CommentI had been listening to this tune for a while when I came upon a review of the album. According to that, this sing was supposed to be about the pit of alcoholism. I always thought it was just about needing a drink...
