Paycheck, Johnny - Drinkin' And Drivin' Lyrics



Five dollars worth of regular, three dollars worth of wine
Just hand me a road map, show me the state line
I got the blues on my bumper, lord, I gotta leave 'em behind
Yeah, I'm gonna drink and drive that woman right off of my mind

She bought a ticket for Texas, left me late last night
I got a ticket this morning for a D.U.I.
10-4 ten dollars is my very last dime
I'm gonna take it and drink and drive that woman right off of my mind

Breaker, breaker, this is heartache, now hear me loud and clear
I got a memory on my tailgate, hey-hey, and old smokey's on my rear
I'm gonna chase my headlights till I can drink me blind
I'm gonna be drinkin' and drivin' that woman right off of my mind

She took my grandma's picture and everything I had
I'm half tanked on misery, I've never felt so bad
My walls are filled with nothin' I can't face 'em tonight
So I'ma gonna keep drinkin' and drivin' that woman right off of my mind

Breaker, breaker, this is heartache, now hear me loud and clear
I got a memory on my tailgate, lord, and old smokey's on my rear
I'm gonna chase my headlights till I can drink me blind
I'm gonna be drinkin' and drivin' that woman right off of my mind

  15. chuck gardner

    after a rowdy bar weekend the lawyers have smiles on their faces with all the dui money

  16. Bill rash

    This song first came out when I was in high school, and I really dug it. Within a few short years, however, it seemed to disappear from the earth utterly & became very difficult to find anywhere. I used to scour the Paycheck records & tapes in all the stores for ages before I finally found a cassette tape with it on it. It must've been the MADD anti-drunk driving blitz, coupled with radical changes to country radio at the time. For years there, I thought I might never hear it again!

  17. Capt Larry -

    Damn good song.

  18. mark reinders

    Dang son!
    Way back then all Johnny needed was $5 to fill up his pick up! $3 could buy you a bottle of wine!
    . . . and a DUI ticket was just $10!!!!!!

    Dang! Those were the days boy.

    Casper 'the racist' Ghost

    Hey. Paul Krugman? Is that you?
    :D

    Justin Palmer

    Wish my DUI was $10.

  25. wreckin50s

    ohhhh duis cost a fuckin shit load nowadays haas hahahaha cheers mr paycheck you kicked cash's songs outta the water hahah

  26. Owen McCaffrey

    Just sayin' Johnny is the most under appreciated country star ever. He went from being a great country bassist and singer to full out country star. A natural for sure. Johnny is the definition of country for this bass player.  

    Scorpio73

    @Dingdonglong All truth man! I dig Johnny Paycheck but few can compete with DAC

    Owen McCaffrey

    Dingdongalong. I stated that Johnny was my favorite country performer. I didn't suggest that he should be your favorite country star or anyone else's for that matter. For the record, anyone that knows me, knows I'm anything but dumb. Chill.  

    PonderingDesertRat

    ACTUALLY what you said was 

    "Johnny is the most under appreciated country star ever"

    Which is a load of shit.

    Dumbass!

  27. SuperStang1968

    Country just aint this good any more, love the old stuff

  28. BUBBA BELL

    more deaths from textin while drivin

  29. Ernie Clifton
