Liquor Store Blues



Standing at this liquor storeWhiskey coming through my poresFeeling like I run this whole blockLotto tickets and cheap beerThat's why you can catch me hereTryna scratch my way up to the top
Cause my job got me going nowhereSo I ain't got a thing to loseTake me to a place where I don't careThis is me and my liquor store blues
I'll take one shot for my painOne drag for my sorrowGet messed up todayI'll be okay tomorrow
One shot for my painOne drag for my sorrowGet messed up todayI'll be okay tomorrow
Me and my guitar tonightSinging to the city lightsTryna live on more than what I gotCause '68 CitrusAin't gonna pay the rent soI'll be out here til they call the cops
Cause my job got me going nowhereSo I ain't got a thing to loseTake me to a place where I don't careThis is me and my liquor store blues
I'll take one shot for my painOne drag for my sorrowGet messed up todayI'll be okay tomorrow
One shot for my painOne drag for my sorrowGet messed up todayI'll be okay tomorrow
[Damian Marley:]Here comes Junior GongI'm flying high like supermanAnd thinkin that I run the whole blockI don't know if it's just becausePineapple kush between my jawsHas got me feeling like I'm on topFeeling like I woulda stand up to the copsAnd stand up to the bigger heads cause the whole ah them are sapsAll the talk them are talk and them fly make no dropEnough getto youth cannot escape the trap.
Give me this one shot for my painOne drag for my sorrowGet messed up todayI'll be okay tomorrow
One shot for my painOne drag for my sorrowGet messed up todayI'll be okay tomorrow
