Cocktail And A Song Lyrics

The Highwomen – Cocktail And A Song Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Daddy passed me his bottle of tequila
Said, "Time's running out
We're gonna have to pretend it's a margarita
It's the order of things, it's the way it goes
Don't you look at me, girl, like I'm already gone"

[Chorus]
The day is close, it won't be long
Couple of cocktails and a song
And don't you let me see you cry
Don't you go grieving
Not before I'm gone

[Verse 2]
He had his lighter on a leash
And menthols in his shirt pocket
Said, "I'm going up with the smoke
There's no doin' anything to stop it
So take a deep breath
Quit with the countdown
You've always been your daddy's girl
Nothing's gonna change that now"

[Chorus]
The day is close, it won't be long
Couple of cocktails and a song
And don't you let me see you cry
Don't you go grieving
Not before I'm gone

[Bridge]
And then he stared down at his shoes
Through the pink begonia's blue
Said, "Daddy, all I want is your silver belt buckle
And maybe your black Stetson hat"
And both of us laughed about that

[Chorus]
The day is close, no it won't be long
Couple of cocktails and a song
Don't you let me see you cry
Don't you go grieving
Not before I die
