I remember a girl from the Salvation Army,
Walked into the barroom last night;
She took out her Bible and sat down beside us,
And proceeded to show us the Light.

Yeah! We must of been drunk,
When we said we'd quit drinkin',
A double shot over the line;
Lord, we had to be drunk, what was we thinkin'?
We must of been out of our mind.

While I rolled a smoke, she read the scripture,
Saint Peter, Saint Luke, and Saint Paul;
Said, how come you're talkin'
'bout walkin' on water?
The two drunks can't even crawl.

Yeah! We must of been drunk,
When we said we'd quit drinkin',
A double shot over the line;
Lord, we had to be drunk, what was we thinkin'?
We must of been out of our mind.

I was down on my knees, last I remember,
She was prayin' me back to the fold;
And I made a promise that I'd give up the bottle,
But Jack Daniel's walked off with my soul.

Yeah! We must of been drunk,
When we said we'd quit drinkin',
A double shot over the line;
Lord, we had to be drunk, what was we thinkin'?
We must of been out of our mind.

Yeah! We must of been drunk,
When we said we'd quit drinkin',
A double shot over the line;
Lord, we had to be drunk, what was we thinkin'?
We must of been out of our mind.

Yeah! We must of been out of our mind.
