about

At the songwriting series I hosted in Providence, one night the audience came up with the theme "Foggy Minded Breakdown". This is the result.

lyrics

Head full of whiskey, heart full of woe
I've got an evil woman with her fingers on my soul
If I was talking sober I might get back in control
But I don't want to wait that long

Her eyes, they look like heaven
Her lips taste like rain
Her hips are swaying back and forth
Through my weary brain
If I watch her move a minute more
She might drive me insane
And I don't want to wait that long

I don't want to wait that long (good God honey)
I don't want to wait that long
I might be alright when I'm back in her arms tonight
But I don't want to wait that long

Well it's one round for the money
Two rounds it's a show
Three rounds and I'm good and ready
After four rounds I should go
That fifth round, don't tell me
I don't want to know
I don't want to wait that long

Well if whiskey was a river
And I was a diving duck
I'd be stranded on the shoreline
'Cause you know that's just my luck
I'd watch you diving down
And someday you might come back up
But I don't want to wait that long

I don't want to wait that long (good God honey)
I don't want to wait that long
I might be alright when I'm back in her arms tonight
But I don't want to wait that long

Well that fiddle it's ringing yeah the bass is pumping loud
And I can see you staring at me from clear across the crowd
Way you got me feeling only heaven will allow
And I don't want to wait that long

I don't want to wait that long (good God honey)
I don't want to wait that long
I might be alright when I'm back in her arms tonight
But I don't want to wait that long
I don't want to wait that long (good God now honey)
I don't want to wait that long
I might be alright when I'm back in her arms tonight
But I don't want to wait that long
I don't want to wait that long

Aquarium Drunkard said: "His rhythmic folk songs are more of the hand-banging variety, his delivery marked with dark traces like the end of the night, and he plays with captivating confidence."
