about

Whiskey Jeff and the Beer Back Band Minneapolis, Minnesota

From "The Legend of Whiskey Jeff" by Craig Drehmel:

Whiskey Jeff all the while has ambition only for his next drink, his next verse and whatever lies beyond the wide open stage door.

Sometimes you don’t know if you should be shedding tears or laughing over lost and found love and loneliness.

At least you know Jeff's been there, armed with a half a handle, a warm beer and yesterday's roach.

Track Name: Good Morning Heartache
Well good morning Head Ache, can I buy you a beer?
Buy you a round or two, and Head Ache you don't stay too long
Your brother Heart Ache, he's already here
Your brother Heart Ache, he ain't ever gone

Good morning Head Ache, can I roll you a joint?
Give you a drag or two, and Head Ache you don't stay too long
Saw her at the bar last night, and boys she was looking good
Had her hair just the way I like, it hung loose down over her shoulders
Said she came to hear me sing,
But she brought along that new man that she's seeing
I woke up this morning next to a woman and I didn't know her name

So good morning Head Ache, can I buy you a beer?
Buy you a round or two, and Head Ache you don't stay long
I can't remember the things I did last night
Your brother Heart Ache, he ain't ever gone

Your brother Heart Ache, he's already here
Your brother Heart Ache he ain't ever gone
Track Name: V8 Ford
Nothing compares to the that way I feel
When I got you beside me and I'm behind the wheel
Of my V­8 Ford going up and down the road
Me and you go cruising but we got no placed to go

When you ride shotgun you look so good
Just being near you honey puts me in a better mood
But I think they look better when they're bloodshot too
You got the prettiest eyes of blue

I got grass, I got gas
Why don't you get that pretty little ass
In the front seat of my truck
Pack a bowl and spark it up
Let's get high and fall in love

I've been your since the first day we met
And God Damn you look sexy as you smoke that cigarette
I always hate that I have to take you home
Say the work we'll keep on driving and we'll keep getting stoned

I got grass, I got gas
Why don't you get that pretty little ass
In the front seat of my truck
Pack a bowl and spark it up
Let's get high and fall in love
Track Name: Whiskey
Her hair was the color of bourbon
And she carried that sweet smell on her breath
Lord I thought she was perfect
Until that day she left
We'd spend all our nights drinking
Until that bottle went dry
Then we made love
But I never dreamed that she'd ever say good bye

Oh whiskey
If you were a woman I'd never be alone
Whiskey
You just remind me of
That bourbon drinking woman alone

You haven't always been good to me
But you've always been around
And whiskey if you were a woman I'd never be alone
If she came back I'd forgive her
She broke my heart so tenderly
She left me a bottle of liquor
With a note that said “Darling get drunk on me”

Lord I really miss her
That woman that knows me so well
That night I cried and I drank that whole damn bottle of Power's Gold Label

Oh whiskey
If you were a woman I'd never be alone
Whiskey
You just remind me of
That bourbon drinking woman alone
You haven't always been good to me
But you've always been around
And whiskey if you were a woman I'd never be alone
Track Name: Templeton
I'm the one that picks you up when you fall down
I'm the one that picks up the pieces when you fall apart
I'm the one that'll do anything for you
(You're the one)
You're the one that breaks my heart

I knew I loved you from the day we met
But a one night stand and let's just be friends is all I get
But I'll always have a shoulder when he makes your teardrops start
I'm the one that loves you and you're the one that breaks my heart

I'm the one that picks you up when you fall down
I'm the one that picks up the pieces when you fall apart
I'm the one that'll do anything for you
(You're the one)
You're the one that breaks my heart

One evening as we drank a bottle of rye
You started smiling at me with that twinkle in your eye
I thought you had finally been struck by one of Cupid's darts
Once again I said I love you and once again you broke my heart

I'm the one that picks you up when you fall down
I'm the one that picks up the pieces when you fall apart
I'm the one that'll do anything for you
(You're the one)
You're the one that breaks my heart
Track Name: Life I Want
The sky is gray and leaves are turning
I've got a desire burning
There's so many things I haven't seen
Everyday I keep relearning
Cheap pleasure's not worth pursuing
I've lost so many of my memories

I know the life I want
Is down a million miles of asphalt
Someplace where January's warm
And like the morning frost
My mind will soon be lost
And I feel like the calm before the storm

The trees are bare and snow is falling
I hear that road calling my name
It's calling me
Like the birds I'll be leaving
I hope that you believe in me
Chasing my dreams

I know the life I want
Is down a million miles of asphalt
Someplace where January's warm
And like the morning frost
My mind will soon be lost
And I feel like the calm before the storm
Track Name: Regret
I'm trying to have a good time so I'm taking pills
And drinking at the bar as you and your son walked in
To First Avenue so you could see the show
I couldn't talk so how could I say hello?

And my good idea turned to regret
Three Vicodin and the whiskey on my breath
I'm fall'n in love
But I'm just so God Damn dumb
Cause tonight I'm just a fall'n mess
I'm down in Council Bluffs so I could see David Allan Coe
I take a shot of whiskey during every single song
I'm feeling pretty good, but by the end of the night
I'm talking shit to two dudes twice my size

And my good idea turned to regret
When I called a biker a pussy and a cowboy a faggot
I'm running my mouth
And I'm a bout to be knocked out
Cause tonight I'm just a fall'n mess

I'm listening to sad songs and I'm drinking gin
You come over to my house and we start talking
You're headed to a party and you say that I should go
I'm so damn drunk I just have to say no

And my good idea turned to regret
Merle Haggard records and the vomit on my breath
I'm fall'n in love
But I'm just so God Damn dumb
Cause tonight I'm just a fall'n mess
Track Name: Heart For Sale
Heart for sale, hardly used
It's only been broken once still works like new
Do I got any takers?
It's perfect for heart breakers

Heart for sale, hardly used
Heart for sale, heart for sale,I'll give you a good price
It broke on me once, I just can't stand it breaking twice
Heart for sale, going cheap
Heart for sale, yours to keep

Heart for sale
Track Name: Asshole
Last night when I walked you home we were both stumbling
I got to your door and told you how I felt
Then you got me stoned, I don't remember what you told me
It was something about only being friends

Now I don't need anymore of those dear
Can't you see I've already got quite a few
What I need is keeping steady company
With someone smart and pretty and I was hoping that was you

I thought we were walking down that road of love
But we got to a dead end
I'm not trying to be an asshole honey
But I don't need anymore friends

Now I don't hold any ill will towards you
It's just that for you my heart still pines
When ever we're spending time together my darling
I'm miserable just wishing you were mine

So if you ever change your mind dear
Don't you hesitate to give me a call
I'll be right here just drinking a beer
Not doing to much of anything at all

I thought we were walking down that road of love
But we got to a dead end
I'm not trying to be an asshole honey
But I don't need anymore friends
Track Name: Hank
Today I was listening to my local country station
They played fifteen songs that mentioned Hank Williams
I listened to that country station all day long
I didn't hear one Hank Williams song

So where the Hell is all the Hank?
He's the King of country music for Christ sake
I'm getting fed up, I've had all that I can take
Where the Hell is all the Hank?

Now Easton Corbin he ain't more country than Hank Williams
I think he should be shot for claiming that he is*
Today's music is egregious
And if you talk to Bochephus
I bet he would ask you this

So where the Hell is all the Hank?
He's the King of country music for Christ sake
I'm getting fed up, I've had all that I can take
Where the Hell is all the Hank?
Track Name: Alamo
The sky is getting brighter, the walls are getting tighter
So I guess I'll have to face another day
In my sick sad room, that reminds me of you
Where I'm slowly going insane

I should get out
But I can't stand up right now
So I lay right here where you left me dear
And I cry
I'm laying here in our old soft bed
And now it's all mine

With the booze and those sad old songs until the sunrise
And I know life will go on
But I still don't know why
This bottle is empty, so now it's just like me
We're both going to be thrown away
But you've found another, so I'll drink another
And everything will be just great

I should get out
But I just can't stand up right now
So I lay right here where you left me dear
And I cry
I'm laying here in our old soft bed
And now it's all mine

Wiih the booze and those sad old songs until the sunrise
And I know life will go on
But I still don't know why
Track Name: L.S.D.
You tell me things I like to hear
You whisper sweet lies in my ear
Then you always leave me sad and blue
You know the way I feel
It's a game to you so you spin my wheel
Just to see what you can get me to do

I'd run into a building on fire
I'd swim a raging river
Just to make sure you were safe from harm

Now I'm picking fight with random men
I'm lonesome stoned and drunk again
All I got is a bloody nose and kicked out of my favorite bar
Your wicked ways have left their token
My body is weak and broken
Women, whiskey and bouncers can be so cruel

Lord look at the mess I'm making
All the chances I've been taking
Honey, I secure all the blame to you

I'd run into a building on fire
I'd swim a raging river
Just to make sure you were safe from harm
Now I'm picking fight with random men

I'm lonesome stoned and drunk again
All I got is a bloody nose and kicked out of my favorite bar

I'm lonesome stoned and drunk again
