In Alcohol’s Defense lyrics

by

Hayes Carll


[Verse 1]
He says, "I'm sorry, baby
Last night was just the whiskey talkin'
You know how when I get to drinkin'
I can sometimes lose my head"
She puts down her coffee
And smiles to keep from cryin'
Picks up an empty bottle
Holds it out and says

[Chorus]
In alcohol's defense
It's not the one that did the hurtin'
It just opened up the curtain
To show what you really feel
You just needed ninety-proof
To give me your two cents
That's how I see it
In alcohol's defense

[Verse 2]
So, you see, I don't believe you
When you say you didn't mean it
'Cause last night you were certain
And you told me to my facе
And now you stumble in here
With alibis and bad еxcuses
Blamin' booze for what the truth is
Tryin' to plead your losin' case
[Chorus]
And so in alcohol's defense
It's not the one that did the hurtin'
It just opened up the curtain
To show what you really think
Those words don't come from nowhere
You had to feel that way to get there
And damn you, it just ain't fair
When you blame it on the drink
You just needed ninety-proof
To throw out your two cents
That's how I see it
In alcohol's defense
That's how it is
In alcohol's defense
