Latest Lyric – High and Dry

You ever notice how everybody, sings about whiskey and drinking
Talking about how great it is, but you know what? Maybe its not that great…
I slide my belly up to the bar, sipping seven up from a mason jar Pretty girl, pours my drink just the same Just because my bros are there, doesn't mean that I've got to share A shot to the gut that'll take my breath away
Yeah I am high and I'm dry I've traded in the bottle for a better life Yeah I am high and I'm dry Now the best of me, is still inside of me But the whiskey has come and gone I have never felt so strong And my baby, she done cried Yeah I'm high and I'm dry
You didn't leave me, I left you, a little bitty thing that I had to do You were hanging on to me, just a little too much I'm piling up your money, you aint' getting none Don't need a bullet from a loaded gun I can walk just fine without your crutch
Yeah I am high and I'm dry I've traded in the bottle for a better life Yeah I am high and I'm dry Now the best of me, is still inside of me But the whiskey has come and gone I have never felt so strong And my baby, she done cried Yeah I'm high and I'm dry
Mr. Jameson, it aint' all your fault Just one big family of all y'all Selling that triple filtered toxic water My girl my friends, my mom and dad They love me still, yet I was sad And loving you, don't make me a better father Gonna' look above me and pray to god That I'll be driving sober, I'm done with you my love Don't need your hangover… I am high and I'm dry I've traded in the bottle for a better life Yeah I am high and I'm dry Now the best of me, is still inside of me But the whiskey has come and gone I have never felt so strong And my baby, she done cried Yeah I'm high… I am high… I am high and I'm dry Words and music written by Brian Lee Bender

I wrote High and Dry to share my personal experience with others. This story is my recent  journey to work hard on a better version of myself. Improved health, energy and mental acuity have been witnessed in my life from simply quitting a social habit of drinking. Honestly, I don’t miss it and I would never preach to others about what brings thems joy. 

The way I looked at it, was that, I wanted to know how much sharper I might become by giving it up. Happily it has worked for me. If you know somebody who might find strength in this song, it is my pleasure to have you pass it along. 

Cheers
