lyrics

What with the warm weather
And the rum and ginger
With a whole half a lime
Why not hold off on the walk home?
Find us a bottom to top the night

Shooting bottles off the back deck
Take all the fooling that you can get
With just a penny in your purse
It ain't the traveling that's tough
It ain't the working that hurts

If you dress sharp, play well
Be modest and keep good what you have
When you're warmed up in a wood room
What could be better?
What more could you use?

Than the front table at our favorite bar
Starr Hill Amber and Sandy Grey's guitar
Just look at those fingers fly!
Three cheers for the hometown
But my heart for the traveler's wine

Making 'em talk about nothing
Or what happened last year
Her head on his Tennessee sweatshirt
Not a cloud in the sky, not a negative word
Not a passerby

And so you gotta dig you a hole
Before you put your fence in
Go it alone
Before you let your friends in
Quit a party once in a while
Hold out for that warm weather
Fill your glass and keep trying

To dress sharp, play well
Be modest and keep good what you have
Warmed up in a wood room
What could be better?
What more could you use?
