  One more beer and I'll be gone from you
  don't need a six-pack one bottle will do
  If you've got none on hand
  then I'll drink from a can
  even a warm one will do
  Just something to help me get through

      [Chorus]
      And it's just one drink for the road
      And it's just one drink for the road
      One more beer and I'll be outta here
      One drink for the road

  And if i'm caught with an open container
  I won't be distraught or fear my detainer
  I'll be alright
  you can't hold me the night
  I got me a lawyer
  he's on retainer
  and he owes me one for the road

      [Chorus]

  You said I'm cut off and I look like a shame
  but we'd laughed and we'd sang and I'd called you by name
  but I'd asked for one
  more from my spot on the floor
  you accepted the tip just the same
  And you gave me one for the road

      [Chorus]

  I won't tell a soul where I bought my last beer
  it's a secret I'll keep when I disappear
  when the cops come around
  when they're draggin' the town
  you can swear that I didn't drink here
  'cause you gave me one for the road

      [Chorus]
