"My Old Ways" as written by and Toby Leaman Scott Mcmicken....
She was a good girl before she met me
And I thought I'd introduce her to corruption
But love is a bargain, and she drove a hard one
Before long, she'd beat me into submission
But I kept on drinking and it started to rankle
When she'd talk to me about ambition
I wasn't willing to give up on the bottle
And that runed out to be one of her conditions
Now that she's kicked me out...

I can't wait to get back to my old ways
I'm gonna get me a gallon of hundred-proof whiskey
And get drunk for three days
I'm gonna take all the girls from the bar home with me
And see which one of them stays
God, ain't it great to be free

One night I came home about four in the morning
And she was waiting with the lights on
So I grabbed my guitar and started picking something
I guess I didn't play the right song
Then I made the mistake when she started crying
Of trying to ask her what's wrong
She said, «Goddamn you, you better get packing
That's the last time you'll ask me that question»
Now that she's kicked me out...
