"Roll It On Home" as written by and John Clayton Mayer....
One last drink to wishful thinkin'
And then another again
The bar is getting brighter
And the walls are closin' in

Journey on the jukebox singin'
Don't let the believin' end
The one that you had eyes for
Had their eyes for your best friend

Nobody's gonna love you right
Nobody's gonna take you in tonight
Finish out the bottle or step into the light
And roll it on home

Roll it on home
Roll it on home
Tomorrow's another chance you won't go it alone
If you roll it on home

The last ten texts were with your ex
And all of 'em were sent by you
But you keep starin' at your phone like something's comin' through
Come to grips and take your chips when the cards aren't goin' your way
You've been here so long tonight's already yesterday

Nobody's gonna love you right
Nobody's gonna take you in tonight
Finish out the bottle or step into the light
And roll it on home

Roll it on home
Roll it on home
Tomorrow's another chance you won't go it alone
If you roll it on home

Nobody's gonna love you right
Nobody's gonna take you in tonight
Drop a couple dollars, bum yourself a light
And roll it on home

Roll it on home
Roll it on home
Tomorrow's another chance you won't go it alone
If you roll it on home

Roll it on home
Roll it on home
Roll it on home

    General CommentJust me but i think this is another ode to weed from John. He said in an interview that he replaced drinking booze with smoking weed on 2017, but even before that John Mayer has been pretty open about his love for the cannabis (also Who Says is about weed more or less).

    But just looking at the lyrics, he clearly is stating that going out and drinking, even being let down by women he wants to bed or him saying hes going to "bum a light" all indicate him lighting up a spliff
