Women and whiskey...pretty cliche for a country song, I know. I've had this song written for a while, but I've been swamped. Haven't posted in a good long while, but I do appreciate the feedback here. I'll get home and digest some songs written by others and give some feedback tonight hopefully. I was listening to Hank Jr. a lot when I wrote this I think. The lyrics and the tune I have in my head are sort of a blend between Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound and Outlaw Women, so there's that.

V1
A good, strong whiskey crawls down the sides of the glass.
Every sip leaves a burn on the throat that’ll last.
A solid whiskey will give you a buzz, nice and long.
And I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong.

C
I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong.
A woman who can thrive right by my side or alone.
100 proof whether I’m right or I’m wrong.
I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong.

V2
Women or whiskey can be either bitter or sweet.
Amber hair or amber liquid, I prefer both to be neat.
They put a smile on my face, to my heart sing a song
Women and whiskey, I want them both to be strong.

C
I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong.
A woman who can thrive right by my side or alone.
100 proof whether I’m right or I’m wrong.
I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong.

V3
Gimme that liquid fire or a firecracker in jeans
King of the bottle or a hot country queen.
Truth be told, I’ve been addicted to both all along.
A good woman, a good bourbon, I like both of ‘em strong

C
I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong.
A woman who can thrive right by my side or alone.
100 proof whether I’m right or I’m wrong.
I like my women like I like my whiskey, I like ‘em strong

Thanks, guys. I guess my biggest concern at this point is the redundancy of another country song about women and whiskey. Can be white noise.

I understand what you are saying, and it seems like a fair concern. I am not familiar enough with country music to give my opinion. Could it be tweaked to be something besides whiskey? Maybe moonshine? I am not sure that would be better, but thought I would throw it out there.

Nothing wrong with a song about women and whiskey. Sure it won't be the first but with the right music it will always work. I like these lyrics and look forward to hearing them in a song.:)

I can't fault this either.

I did misread " I like ‘em strong." at one point as "I like 'em all night long..."

But that's just wishful thinking on my part I guess!:Thumbs

That may make a great tagline at the end of the last chorus, "And I like both all night long" or something like that.
