whiskey do my talkin’ lyrics – brooks & dunn

i’m not some c’mon strong, romeo cowboy,
no, i’m not that type.
without a little help, i’d prob’ly have two left feet.
but you ain’t gonna let that happen tonight.
turn up that jukebox, sit me at the bar.
i promised her the moon, you throw in the stars.

whiskey, do my talkin’,
say all the things i can’t.
here’s to you, my hundred proof friend,
oh, go on an’ do your thing.
she’s just a line away from fallin’,
goin’ wild, an’ honky-tonkin’…
whiskey, do my talkin’.

i’m better on the street in the broad daylight.
if i could bring myself to speak or get a word out right.
but you put me in a bar-room, you put a drink in my hand…
i’m a cool, calm, collected, silver-tongued ladies man.

whiskey, do my talkin’,
say all the things i can’t.
here’s to you, my hundred proof friend,
oh, go on an’ do your thing.
she’s just a line away from fallin’,
goin’ wild, an’ honky-tonkin’…
whiskey, do my talkin’.

[instrumental break]

oh, i… tell her all the things i can’t.
here’s to you, my hundred proof friend,
go on an’ do your thing.
she’s just a line away from fallin’,
goin’ wild, an’ honky-tonkin’…
hey.

whiskey, do my talkin’,
say all the things i can’t.
here’s to you, my hundred proof friend,
oh, go on an’ do your thing.
she’s just a line away from fallin’,
goin’ wild, an’ honky-tonkin’…
whiskey, do my talkin’.

oh, i.
