Trouble In Mind
Knockin Over Whiskeys
I keep knockin' over whiskeys
No one's laughing at my jokes
They got me spinnin' 'round in circles
Like a tin can in the spokes
When I left town this mornin'
With a smile upon my face
Oh babe I swear I never knew
I'd end up in this place
Run away little darlin'
You don't need me any more
I've been out here for too long
And it ain't like it was before
If I get back home to Huston
I'm going to tip my hat and cry
When I left I was a younger man
Too proud to say goodbye
I'm gonna wake up in the morning
With a conscience ten feet tall
I'm going to lay my head down awhile
So I won't look down at all
Run away little darlin'
You don't need me any more
I've been out here for too long
And it ain't like it was before
I used to live out on the border
Where no one else could reach
Now I can ask a question
Without you givin' a speech
You said I never cared babe
You know that isn't true
It's just the only thing you ask of me
Is the one thing I can't do
Run away little darlin'
You don't need me any more
I've been out here for too long
And it ain't like it was before
Run away little darlin'
And leave you with a smile
I'm knockin' over whiskeys
And I will be for awhile
