Barley & Grape Rag Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well I don't care if I get arrested,
'Cos tonight they'll need more than a ball and chain,
I don't care who's interested,
I'm coming into town just the same.
I've been so alone, I've been feeling blue,
I think I need a little drink or two,
Be my friend, tell me where the place is,
Where the whiskey flows and the dices roll till dawn?
Verse 2
My baby's done me wrong you must have guessed it,
My heart's so low I think it must be told,
That I don't wanna know where east or west is,
'Cos pretty soon I won't feel the cold.
Verse 3
When I'm walking down mainstreet, feeling no pain,
Along comes a cop, he can take my name,
And explain to me what a federal case is,
I'm mixing the barley with the grape again.
Verse 4
Bright city lights, make me feel alright,
I'm right or wrong and tomorrow never comes.
I don't care if I get investigated,
And the city fathers they all black my name.
Verse 5
I'm pretty sure that you can smell the traces,
For tomorrow morning, I'll take all the blame.
I've been feeling bad and feeling blue,
I think I need a little whiskey or two,
God, brother, you look like you could do with it too.
(That's true)
Tonight I'll sleep on a walking-cane.
Verse 6
Bright city lights, make me feel alright,
I'm right or wrong and tomorrow never comes.
I don't care if I get arrested,
Cause tonight they'll need more than a ball and chain.
Verse 7
I don't care who's interested,
I'm coming into town just the same,
I've been feeling alone and I've been feeling blue.
I think I need a little drink or two.
Verse 8
Hey, be my friend, tell me where the place is,
Where the whiskey flows and the dices roll till dawn
