I DRANK THAT BARREL DOWN
(Urs Odermatt - L. Steele)
RHYTHM' TRAIN (2005)

I've been gone too long
There ain't no end in sight
Lord, please help me make it
Round just one more bend

Gonna tell y'all a story
How I saved my poor ol' horse
We'd been through so much together
I really had no choice

Drank drank drank that barrel down
Folks sure were surprised
when I staggered into town
Perched high upon a cliff
with the devil down below
I drank that barrel down
Was a mighty fine Merlot

Well the road was gettin' narrow
And I had to lead the way
Took my horses reins in hand
And then began to pray

Them rocks they sure were jagged
Hoped we'd make it safe to town
Things were looking pretty good
Till them rocks came tumblin' down

Drank drank drank that barrel down
Folks sure were surprised
when I staggered into town
Perched high upon a cliff
with the devil down below
I drank that barrel down
Was a mighty fine Merlot

I felt the devil's breath
As them rocks flew round my head
Thought he'd come for me at last
But my horse got hit instead

Could see him start to sway
One barrel was smashed in two
That weight became his fate
Only one thing left to do...

Drank drank drank that barrel down
Folks sure were surprised
when I staggered into town
Perched high upon a cliff
with the devil down below
I drank that barrel down
Was a mighty fine Merlot
