George Jones — Hundred Proof Memories lyrics

Love on the rocks that's all he said
As he sat there beside me shaking his head
I said, Mister, you look like you're taking it rough
The next round's on me. He said, I don't touch the stuff.

'Cause these hundred proof mem'ries are stronger than wine
It don't take but one taste to send you out of your mind
No, I don't want the whiskey but I could sure use a ride
'Cause with hundred proof mem'ries, Lord, you don't think and drive.

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/george-jones-hundred-proof-memories-lyrics.html ]
He said, I quit drinkin' the day that she left
I come here out of habit in spite of myself
But there ain't no liquor that money can buy
That's stronger than what's bottled up inside.

'Cause these hundred proof mem'ries are stronger than wine
It don't take but one taste to send you out of your mind
No, I don't want the whiskey but I could sure use a ride
'Cause with hundred proof mem'ries, Lord, you don't think and drive.

No, I don't want the whiskey but I could sure use a ride
'Cause with hundred proof mem'ries, Lord, you don't think and drive...
