about

Bumpkin returns after 5 years with his follow up to More Songs About Drinking and Women Who Left (2007). Themes of drinking and general disorder are evident still, but the artist also explores more somber themes that have come to light upon getting older.

Track Name: Blame It On Somethin'
There's not much new
Still feel like cryin'
Or better yet dying'
She said "we're through"

I'll still fight them lonesome blues
Gonna drink until you're gone
to the back of my dead brain
Where the other ones remain


I'll just blame it on somethin'
that you were hell bent on leaving
I'll tell myself there's nothing I could do
But my conscience ain't agreein'
Since you're not the first one leaving
I'm not quite ready to blame it on myself

You found someone new
Well good for you
Honey did you call
Just to rub it in?

Well it won't do a lick of good
I'm digging here in the ground
And I've cried inside this hole so long
I can't get farther down

I'll just blame it on somethin'
That you were hell bent on leaving
I'll tell myself there's nothing I could do
But my conscience ain't agreein'
Since you're not the first one leaving
I'm still not ready to blame it on myself


There's not much new
Still feel like cryin'
Or better yet dyin'
She said "we're through"
Track Name: The Path You're On
It's time to face what we both know
It's time you let me go
It's clear what path you're on

I'll try and say it's all God's plan
A game my heart won't understand
Knowing where it's been


I don't know how much you cried
But I know how much I tried
To show you I'm not them


And I tried to ease the fear from loves long gone
I thought that I could turn you on
Now time is proving me wrong

Too blind to see it for myself
That all the time that's left
Won't change your mind

I don't know how much you cried
But I know how much I tried
To show you I'm not them

I hold out hope before we're old
Memories die that kept you alone
'Cause honey I'm not through tryin'

It's time to face what we both know
It's time you let me go
It's clear what path you're on
Track Name: Sometimes When I Get Real Drunk
Sometimes When I get real drunk
I get a hankerin' to call you up
But I don't
Thank God I don't.

The alcohol plays a trick on me
And I forget about the nights you left me alone
And I think of home

When the light of day comes 'round
I think God you're mine no more
I sober up and my mind gets clear
about why I left our house before

I do fear there's gonna come a time
A night when I get all out of line
And call you up
And let you know how sorry I really am

Then my misery'd begin again
Roamin' bars and asking where you've been
All because I got too drunk

When the light of day comes 'round
I think God you're mine no more
I sober up and my mind gets clear
about why I left our house before


Sometimes When I get real drunk
I get a hankerin' to call you up
But I don't, thank God I don't
But I don't, thank God I don't
Track Name: Gonna Be the One You've Been Treatin' Bad
So I heard you dumped another man
Now it seems to be some yearly plan
Take 'em in then send them on their way
I thought you'd settle down by now
But old habits tend to be the last to break

Word in this town travels fast
Get her 'cause she will not last
Now I'm another standing in a line
The man who wins will know the end
It's just a temporary ride


I wanna be the one you've been treatin' bad
And I'll tell myself we'll end up better than the others that you had
And even though I'm sure to cry when loves turns to the past
Gonna be the one you've been treatin' bad


What caused my girl to act this way?
I can only speculate
No one knows and it's clear you'll never say
Maybe someone hurt you long ago
And you cried until your heart just ran away

Now I can't make outlandish claims
That I'm the one to heal the pain
That's reserved for you and God alone
But I'll wait my turn in hopes to love you
More than all the other men you've known

I'm gonna be the one you've been treatin' bad
And I'll tell myself we'll end up better than the others that you had
And even though I'm sure to cry when loves turns to the past
Gonna be the one you've been treatin' bad
Gonna be the one you've been treatin' bad
Track Name: Shanty
Gonna sit down in the kitchen
And fix me something good to eat
And make my head a little high
And make this whole day complete
Cuz we gonna lay around the shanty, mama
And put a good buzz on

Well pass it to me baby
Pass it to me slow
We'll take time out to smile a little
Before we let it go
Cuz we gonna lay around the shanty, mama
And put a good buzz on

Well there ain't nothin' to do
And there's always room for more
Fill it, light it, shut up
And close the door
Cuz we gonna lay around the shanty, mama
And put a good buzz on

We gonna sit around the kitchen
Fix us somethin' good to eat
And make ourselves a little high
And make the whole day complete
Cuz we gonna lay around the shanty, mama
And put a good buzz on
Cuz we gonna lay around the shanty, mama
And put a good buzz on
Track Name: The Maze
Girl when you gonna let me in to stay
It's gettin' pretty late
It's gettin' pretty late

When I was young I had time enough to wait
Now I'm running out of ways
Out of ways to say

"Are you still at the end of this maze you got me stuck in
Hoping there's time
Hoping there's time?"
