lyrics

Pour Me A Strong One

It’s been weeks and weeks of travelling down long and winding roads
And I’m getting tired of sleeping in my car all alone
So I pull into the nearest hotel vendor that I see
And I sit myself in a chair I say bar tender will you please

Pour me a strong one make it a gin on the rocks
Well you see sir I’m a singer and I’ve got the night off
If there are any cowboys here who’d like to take me for a ride
Well I’m here for one night only and I’m here for a good time

Then before you know it out of the corner of my eye
Some tall dark handsome stranger starts taking up my size
He starts waltzing over says can I buy you a drink
I haven’t seen you round these parts before and I will simply say

Pour me a strong one make it a gin on the rocks
Well you see sir I’m a singer and I’ve got the night off
If there are any cowboys here who’d like to take me for a ride
Well I’m here for one night only and I’m here for a good time

So he tipped his hat and he took my hand out on to the dance floor
And I showed him a thing or two on how a two step really goes
He was fine at dancing but he talked just a little too much
I said listen boy I’ll tell you what a woman really wants

Poor me a strong one make it a gin on the rocks
If you’re sticking to the whiskey you best just let it talk
And if you’re good if you know how to work that dance floor
I’ve been sleeping in my car and I might let you take me home

Then before you know it well it was time for last call
You know how to fix my drinks make ‘em short don’t make ‘em tall
And after a few more rounds you’ll see double the fun
Let’s hop into your big old truck and just wait ‘til you take me home

Pour me a strong one make it a gin on the rocks
You were sticking to the whiskey and I liked the way it talked
You look like a cowboy I could take for a ride
I’m here for one night only and I’m here for a good time

Pour me a strong one make it a gin on the rocks
Well you see sir I’m a singer and I’ve got the night off
If there are any cowboys here who’d like to take me for a ride
Well I’m here for one night only and I’m here for a good time
I’m here for one night only and I’m here for a good time
