lyrics

DICKEL, STRAIT & JONES
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Jeff Batson)
She’s drawn here most every night
Like a moth to a neon light
Memories burnin’ way too bright
She’s missing her old man
She never orders wine or beer
And if you ask her why she comes in here
She’ll tell you it’s the atmosphere
And three friends who understand

A bottle and a jukebox make her feel at home
Tennessee sippin’ whiskey and classic country songs
Jack is good Merle is great but that ain’t what she wants
She loves the Georges Dickel Strait and Jones

Her daddy played the radio
All night trucking coast to coast
When he’d get home he’d drink a toast
And she’d crawl up in his lap
She remembers how the whiskey smelled
And all the stories he would tell
They sang his favorite songs and she almost felt
Like she was with him in that cab

A bottle and a jukebox make her feel at home
Tennessee sippin’ whiskey and classic country songs
Jack is good Merle is great but that ain’t what she wants
She loves the Georges Dickel Strait and Jones

She'll have a round of what he used to drink before that heart attack
And play the guys who sing the songs that bring her daddy back

Jack is good Merle is great but that ain’t what she wants
She loves the Georges Dickel Strait and Jones
She loves the Georges Dickel Strait and Jones
