Baby, bring me some old Grandad's hundred proof.
Don't play like that man, you'll make me thirsty.
Oh, Lord.

Baby, if I keep on drinkin', I know I can't last too long.
Woman, if I keep on drinkin', people ya know I can't last too long.
That's alright, cause when I'm dead and buried,
Please think about me when you hear this song.
