lyrics

On the second to longest night of the year
Drunk on old laughter and American beer
You slapped on my shoulder my sunburnt flesh
Crispy from the stars that were reaching for breath

CHORUS:
Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'

We sing in off time we sing out of tune
Never knowing the answer
But we've got that old country tune
That makes sure we keep dancing

Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'

Fern forms a circle and our hands form a song
Love comes on like thunder
Amber's got whiskey she's passing it round
Dust kicks up this adventure

Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'

Roachie made cake
Maggie sang lead
Sailor plucked out a sad tune
But under this old dusty north Oakland sky
We can laugh crazy with that old fool moon

Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'
