Box of Bad Habits

lyrics

2. Box of Bad Habits

Mac / Klamp

Hey listen brother…Yeah…Y' know sometimes…I like a shot of whisky…
Yeah…sometimes…I like a big bottle of wine…
You know an' on a hot, hot day….a cold keg of beer…is just fine…
now my poppa he...used to say...forget that wine...drink th' shine...Moonshine
y' know what I'm talkin' about...

[1] Don’t fix me up with no doctor… he’s gonna turn you in, man…
Yeah, don’t fix me up with no doctor… I'm tellin' ya...he’s gonna turn you in...
He don’t like all my drinkin’…all that whisky, wine and gin…

[2] Don’t set me down with no teacher…’cause you’re breakin’ all the rules…x2
Got me a box of bad habits…you learned them all after school…

[C] Well they…won’t let me drink…an' they…won’t let me smoke…
won’t let me gamble…’and they won’t let me toke…
*‘Aw hell’… yeah son…I’d say…we’re on the road to wreck and ruin…
Meanwhile…I got me a box of bad habits…an’ I won’t be quitin’ soon…

James 'Wicked' Cecil - harp solo
'Lonesome Mac' Galloway - guitar solo

[C] Well they…won’t let me drink…and they…won’t let me smoke…
don’t let me gamble…and they won't let me toke…
*‘Aw hell’…yeah son…I’d say…we’re on the road to wreck and ruin…
Meanwhile…I got a box of bad habits…an’ I won’t be quitin’ soon…

[3]- Don’t nail me down with no preacher…
an’ try to show you right ‘n’ wrong…x2
I’m goin’...to hell in a hand truck…
cause ‘anything’ you do is wrong…

[C] Now they…won’t let me drink…and they won’t let me smoke…
won’t let me gamble…and they won’t let me toke…
*‘Aw hell’…yeah son…I’d say…we’re on the road to wreck and ruin…
meanwhile…I got me a box of bad habits…an’ won’t be quitin’ soon…
(that's a fact brother...I tell ya)...
I got me a box of bad habits…an’ won’t be quitin’ soon…you know it...
(you know it)
mmmm...got a box of bad habits *an’ I won’t be quitin’ soon…

hey brother you got, y' got an opener...oh, they'll have one at the bar
hey waiter!...oh man, man I can't find my lighter...oh man he's payin' more attention to the women than to our empty table...ah...you know what!...
I'm plumb out of money...I gotta, I gotta bic lighter I can open a beer with that...Oh man at least 's better than teeth...I just got a couple of taxi cab vouchers in my pocket...ah, that's it brother...Ah man I tell ya...hey it's...we're way past closin' time ya know?...Ah, I think we had better get us, let's get outta here...I think the lights are out?...they have been for a while man!...
