"Rye Whiskey" as written by and Paul Kowert Chris Eldridge....
Rye Whiskey makes the band sound better
Makes your baby cuter, makes itself taste sweeter, oh, boy
Rye whiskey makes your heart beat louder
Makes your voice seem softer, makes the back room hotter, oh, but

Rye thoughts aren't good thoughts, boys
Have I ever told you about the time I

Rye whiskey wraps your troubles up into a bright blue package
Ties a bow around it, oh, boy
Just throw it on the pile in the corner
See, you're not alone in not being alone tonight, but

Rye love isn't good love, boys
Have I ever told you about the time I

I used to wake up bright and early
Got my work done quickly, held my baby tightly, oh, boy
Rye whiskey makes the sun set faster
Makes the spirit more willing but the body weaker because

Rye sleep isn't good sleep, boys
Have I ever told you about the time I

Took it and took her for granted?
How I took it and took her for granted?
So let's take some and take them all for granted

Oh, boy

    This song is about alcohol and the general malaise and indifference it creates. It sharpens immediate experience but dulls lasting meaning, especially in the realm of interpersonal relationships.
