I rode up into town with a half empty bottle
I threw it on the ground, that damn warm whiskey
I mounted off my mare with a half empty shotgun
But I don't seem to care, I'm gettin' more tonight

I walk through the swingin' doors with my head down
They all saw me keepin' eyes with the floor
I walked up to the bar with a dead cold feeling
I'd made it this far, I was gettin' more tonight

CHORUS
Still holding my half empty shotgun
Still hoping for a time to use it right
Keep on looking for the right kind of victim
How this whiskey is the death of the night

I grabbed the man by his own blue collar
Said "In my hand, there should be a drink"
I knocked away the glass and only took the bottle
And rode away again, I'm gettin' more tonight

Still holding my half empty shotgun
Still hoping for a time to use it right
Keep on looking for the right kind of victim
How this whiskey is the death of the night

I'd just got out of town, surrounded by a clear night
I thought I could try and catch up with the sun
All I found was my feet falling all the way
To the ground by myself there I lay

I didn't move but the world wouldn't stop turning
The sky seemed blue, but it was only my emotions
I tried so hard to be so cool
With a half empty bottle, or is it half full

I rode back to town with a hand full of leather
I jumped to the ground when I reached the world
Took out my half empty shotgun and pulled the
Trigger that made my life unwind
I guess I got mine tonight
