"Knockin' Over Whiskeys" as written by and Hayes Carll....
I keep knockin' over whiskeys
No ones laughin' at my jokes
They got me spinnin' round in circles
Like a tin can in the spokes

When I left town this mornin'
With a smile upon my face
Ah babe I swear I never knew
I'd end up in this place

[Chorus]
Run away little darlin'
You don't need me anymore
I've been out here for too long
It ain't like it was before

If I get back home to Houston
I'm gonna tip my hat and cry
When I left I was a younger man
Too proud to say goodbye
I'm gonna wake up in the mornin'
With a conscience ten feet tall
I'm gonna lay my head down wiser
Or I won't lay down at all

[Chorus]

You used to live out on the border
Where no one else could reach
Now I can't ask a question
Without you givin' a speech
You said, I never cared
Babe you know that isn't true
Its just the only thing you asked of me
Was the one thing I can't do

[Chorus: x2]
