Found a prophet on the jukebox
One who spoke non stop
It’s like he lived my life and knew my soul

So I tithed a quarter
To hear one more song
That’s when I drank the kool aid of Jones

He made it real clear
I should trade tears for beers
He helped me realize
I wasn’t living this alone

Then he preached of a place
Selling whiskey by the case
That’s when I drank the kool aid of Jones

Yes I drank the kool aid
One bottle at a time
How did ole George make hell
Seem so divine

His passion my poison
A barstools paradise
That’s why I drank the kool aid of Jones

He taught me so clear
To trade my tears for cold beers
He helped me realize I wasn’t living this alone

Then he preached of a place
Selling whiskey by the case
That’s when I drank the kool aid of Jones

Yes I still, drink the kool aid... of Jones

Very smooth my friend.

I particularly liked:
His passion my poison
A barstools paradise

though maybe a barstool paradise?

The slow rhythm of it feels spot on.

I like it MP. Has a great flow to it. But all of your stuff does.
Very cool and interesting lyrics.
I think it would be awesome if you put Jonestown in there somewhere too.
Great start man.

Thank you Sam. I kinda wonder at what point/age the idea of it all will be lost. Guessing most below 40 would not get it.

Killer lyrics! You always have an interesting and novel way to deliver a message/story.

One small thought: I should trade tears for beers - I could?

Thanks Andrea. It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything.
