WHISKEY BEER AND WINE

Written: Gallagher Street, Las Cruces NM, 1981

 

There used to be a wonderfully rustic bar in Anthony TX called the Anthony Gap. Knees played there quite a bit with Night Flight and got to know the owner well enough to ask her for an old neon Budweiser sign that she wasnít using. He thought it would look great in his living room window at home, but it didnít. It did, however, inspire this song about booze.

 

Thereís a neon sign in a smoky little bar

It flashes on and off red and white

And the neon sign itís the story of my life

It tells my tale a thousand times a night.

 

Whiskey beer and wine

Reads the flashing neon sign

Whiskey beer and wine every night

Whiskey beer and wine

Do you wanna know my sign?

Itís whiskey beer and wine.

 

Once there was a girl, aw but that was long ago

Before I learned to drink my blues away

And once there was a dream,

Oh I wonder where itís gone

Letís drink to it comin back someday.
