Might As Well Get Stoned – Chris Stapleton

Well, she said, she didn’t love me
And kicked me out the door
Now I’m livin’ in one room
And sleepin’ on the floor
Think I’m gonna kick my boots off
And put some music on
And since I’m all alone
I might as well get stoned

[Chorus:]
I might as well get stoned
Get it off my mind
Ain’t got a thing to do
All I’ve got is time
The bottle’s all I’ve had to be a friend of mine
And since my whiskey’s gone
I might as well get stoned

Now every time I watch the TV
Another soldier dies
Another brother’s gone
Another mother cries
Now I know they’ve got a job to do
But if I had one wish
I wish they’d all come home
So, we could all get stoned

[Chorus]

Whiskey and You – Chris Stapleton

There’s a bottle on the dresser by your ring
And it’s empty so right now I don’t feel a thing
And I’ll be hurting when I wake up on the floor
But I’ll be over it by noon
That’s the difference between whiskey and you
Come tomorrow, I can walk in any store
It ain’t a problem, they’ll always sell me more
But your forgiveness
Well, that’s something I can’t buy
There ain’t a thing that I can do
That’s the difference between whiskey and you

[Chorus:]
One’s the devil, one keeps driving me insane
At times I wonder if they ain’t both the same
But one’s a liar that helps to hide me from my pain
And one’s the long gone bitter truth
That’s the difference between whiskey and you

I’ve got a problem but it ain’t like what you think
I drink because I’m lonesome and I’m lonesome ’cause I drink
But if I don’t break down and bring it on myself
It’ll hit out of the blue
That’s the difference between whiskey and you

[Chorus]

Ah, that’s the difference between whiskey and you

When the Stars Come Out – Chris Stapleton

I was looking for a change of scene
You were looking at a magazine
It was red carpets and limousines
And the grass seemed so much greener
All we wanted was to get there fast
So, we packed up everything we had
Running on hope and a tank of gas
Like dreams ain’t just for dreamers
We couldn’t wait to leave that life behind
Trying to find salvation in that city limit sign

[Chorus:]
And one of those LA nights
When the stars come out
Oh, the stars come out and shine
And they burn so bright
They drown the downtown lights
When the stars come out
Oh, when the stars come out

Everybody’s, somebody, someday
Everybody’s got a part to play
Everybody’s trying to find a way
To say, what needs saying
Everybody’s got a friend of a friend
Somebody that can get you in
Begging angels for a sin
In a game that we’re all playing
You and I, we’re gamblers holding cards that we can’t see
And I’m betting on you, you’re betting on me

[Chorus]

Down on the freeway, the sun is out of sight
And I got a feeling tonight might be the night
Yeah, tonight might be the night

[Chorus]

Traveller – Chris Stapleton

I see the sunrise creeping in
Everything changes like the desert wind
Here she comes and then she’s gone again

[Chorus:]
I’m just a traveller on this earth
Sure as my heart’s behind the pocket of my shirt
I’ll just keep rolling till I’m in the dirt
‘Cause I’m a traveller, oh, I’m a traveller
I couldn’t tell you honey, I don’t know
Where I’m going but I’ve got to go
‘Cause every turn reveals some other road
And I’m a traveller, oh, I’m a traveller

My heartbeat’s rhythm is a lonesome sound
Just like the rubber turning on the ground
Always lost and nowhere bound

[Chorus]

When I’m gone
Somebody else will have to feel this wrong
Somebody else will have to sing this song
Somebody else will have to sing along
Sing along

[Chorus]
