Devil’s Whiskey

Must have been a helluva party I can barely open my eyes
When looked into the mirror I’d swear I was wearing some kind of disguise
Think I had a real good time but you can never tell
I might have been close to heaven last night but this morning it feels like hell
maybe I oughta stop this drinking it’s tearing my world apart
Gonna end up with a liver working overtime
And a permanent broken heart


Hey there’s Jenny with a jug in her hand
coming up over the hill
Her Daddy was a friend of Popcorn Sutton
Run a real high class still
People come from miles around to see if it’s all true
The best of the best there ever was that sacred mountain dew

Mama said it’s the Devils whiskey ain't nothin but a mortal sin
Don't go worrying now Mama I ain’t never gonna drink again


You know I shoulda known better it happens every time
Take a little taste of that clear corn liquor and I just about lose my mind
Laughed so hard I fell right down then nearly picked a fight
Asked every girl in the room to dance and meet me at the end of the night
mighta been a little lucky when I finished off that jar
Almost went and drove on home but I couldn't find the car

Hey there’s Jenny with a jug in her hand
coming up over the hill
Her Daddy was a friend of Popcorn Sutton
Run a real high class still
People come from miles around to see if it’s all true
The best of the best there ever was that sacred mountain dew

Mama said it’s the Devils whiskey ain't nothin but a mortal sin
Don't go worrying now Mama I ain’t never gonna drink again

Hey Tom,

Loved it! Funny yet classy. Your backing tracks are as good as the lyric and your vocal. We particularly liked this couplet:

mighta been a little lucky when I finished off that jar
Almost went and drove on home but I couldn't find the car

This is song is addictive! I can see us listening to this more than a couple of times. Great stuff, Tom! Best to a,

Alan & Di

Great track! I'm on my second listen as I type this.

Loved the lyrics, chorus especially. Nice guitar hook, very effective! And production just totally pro, for example the way you handle the track during the "Don't go worrying now Mama I ain’t never gonna drink again" line, very cool.

Great drums, what did you use if you don't mind my asking?

Nice looking website too!

So good

Tom,

Like Kenny, you just keep "killin' it" one after the other.

Everything about this is top-of-the-line-pro. Start to finish. Polished production and mix.

Your vocals get stronger with each recording - if that is possible - they have developed a "star quality". This might be your best ever.

A very strong write. These type fast-pace, uptempo song separates the "boys from the men" when it comes to writers - there is no weakness here - all man. Again, start to finish.

Stellar.

Have fun in the Keys!

Hi Tom.

That is one big, BIG, sound you've got going on there.

Sounds like a cross between ZZ Top and Dolly Parton.

Loved every minute of it.

Hello, Tom

Very fun song with super vocal!
The fusion of traditional country and rock'n'roll is really wonderful.
I do love both Bourbon and Scotch.
Which whiskey is the Devils Whiskey?
Jim Beam Devil's Cut, Jenny (Johnnie) Walker, Queen Jennie or else?
Very interested.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hey Tom, you once schooled me on Appalachian Honky Tonk and, man, did you nail it here.

This would appeal to modern country folks, traditional country folks, progressive bluegrass folks and Americana folks.

I just checked in and the accolades have already hit on your vocals/guitar, the write and the superb production...so DITTO!!!

We ain't gonna parse it out any further -- rather go back for another listen.

Album quality stuff you got going Mr. Adams!

J&B

Tom,

You've done it again! This is fantastic!

As others have already noted, everything about this sits perfectly with everything else. The clarity of the mix is exceptionally good and your performance is up there with the best in the forum. floyd mentioned "star quality" and I want to add +1 to that!

Your choice of instruments is excellent and the groove you put together really engages the listener! Loved it!

All the best,
Noel

Man, this totally reminded me of Jerry Reed.

And since Jerry Reed is just about my favorite feller besides Chet Atkins that is a super high compliment.

Great genre song!!!

Now, if you can just do me a triple time version of Jerry's Breakdown we can be real good friends.

Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!

Un nuevo Navegador de Funciones permite al usuario nuevo u "olvidadizo" encontrar y usar fácilmente la mayoría de las funciones / teclas de acceso rápido / documentos desde una sola ventana. Ecualizar Tempo permite cambiar una canción de rubato grabada a un tempo fijo. Tiempo de audio mejorado / estiramiento de tono (Elastique) incluido. Hay mejoras en el Selector de Canciones, Bajo/Batería o Batería solo Auto-Intros, 3.400 títulos añadidos, mejoras MusicXML, guitarra para "Zurdos" y "Vista de estudiante", mejoras de Arrastrar y Soltar, Ventana Múltiple del Mago del Acorde de Audio y mucho más!
