Lyrics: 
Swinging Doors and Whiskey River: the first words I learned to say
Willie, Merle, and all those outlaws was all that daddy'd ever play
These beer joints where I'm workin', I started workin' at sixteen
Now if I look a little ragged must be those thirty years between
My first single hit the big-time, for a while there I was hot
I can't recall the early nineties; these last ten I'd rather not
There are mornings when I wonder what I can show for all my time
Oh, but I sure can sing with feeling, "Whiskey river take my mind"
This honky tonkin' way of livin'
I've been livin' way too long
'Scuse me if I'm late for heaven
I just lived a country song
Now at this Super 8 in Reno, a couple screamin' through the wall
I'm layin' in my jeans and dreamin' about a girl in Omaha
Well that's been twenty years and counting–I can't go back there anyhow
I hitched my wagon to a heartache and Lord, I'm sleepin' with it now
This honky tonkin' way of livin'
Will make a weak out of the strong
Don't tell your troubles to me, mister
Until you've lived a country song
When that lost highway finds you
Those family ties won't bind you
No matter how your mama may cry
Just follow Hank down that highway
'Til you feel it when you say:
"I'm so lonesome I could cry"
This honky tonkin' way of livin'
I've been livin' way too long
'Scuse me if I'm late for heaven
I just lived a country song
And if I never get to heaven
It's 'cause I lived a country song
