We Drink Whiskey

lyrics

How ‘bout a drink? With all this corn, let’s make the air stink.
Let’s start a distillery. Let’s make some whiskey!
(I’ve) got some buds who are bankers. I’ve got Moss with the boats.
I come from retail, and we’ve got some land we own.
They ask, “Hey, you done this before?”
I say, “Nah, but whatcha gonna do with corn
besides make the devil’s drink?
And, you’ll all follow our lead.

‘Cause, we are sparks. We are the flames.
We are pioneers in this debaucherous scene.
We are sparks. We are the flames.
We are pioneers and we drink whiskey!”
Before the Trust, and y’all got robbed by Greenhut…
Before Carrie Nation came and swung her hatchet…
Before Woodruff and his soda shops…
Before $2 a gallon to pay the war debts off…

We were sparks. We were the flames.
We were pioneers in this debaucherous scene.
We were sparks. We were the flames.
We were pioneers and we drank whiskey!
Yeah, we are sparks. We are the flames.
We are pioneers in this debaucherous scene.
We are sparks. We are the flames.
We are pioneers and we drink whiskey!

We are sparks. We are the flames.
We are pioneers in this debaucherous scene.
We are sparks. We are the flames.
We are pioneers and we drink.
