Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Nope ... Pat Benatar hasn't sung this one ... well, not yet anyway.

It's a song to which I wrote the lyric in 2005 but never put music to it. It has noise now. As most of you know, I played lead guitar in several country bands for about 50 years. But ... I do not have a voice for country music. That probably applies to a lot of other genres, too. But this is my best effort at a country song that might have been contemporary in the 1980s and 1990s.

Sorry I've not been around to listen very much but Di is having more serious health issues. Will visit and listen as I can.

Open to constructive suggestions ... other than "Get another singer!" I already know that!!! Also, is the vocal too hot? Sometimes I think so ... and then I'm not so sure.

Didn’t see her leaving coming
It took me by surprise
The truth’s not always honest
Sometimes it hides the lies

I’m here to drown the heartache
That leaving leaves behind
If I can’t lose these mem’ries
I just might lose my mind

Jim, Jack or Johnny Red
The best of what you got
Put away that barroom stock
I’m gonna need the good stuff
Hit me with your best shot

Keep that courage flowing
Leave the bottle on the bar
I need a liquid medic
For a heart that’s battle scarred

If I run out of money
Bartender start a tab
If I’m still here at last call
Just pour me in a cab
(but till then)

Repeat Chorus

Yes, I’m gonna need the good stuff
So hit me with your best shot
