I'll Take the Fifth
© Dallas Wayne

V.1
WITH MY RIGHT HAND ON THE BIBLE AND THE OTHER IN THE AIR

YES YOUR HONOR, I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR

THAT WHAT I'M GONNA TELL YOU IS NOTHIN' BUT THE TRUTH

AND I'VE GOT AN ALIBI AND IT'S 90 PROOF

YEAH OLD JACK WAS WITH ME ALL NIGHT LONG

JUST LIKE EVERY NIGHT SINCE SHE'S BEEN GONE

NOTHIN' I CAN DO BUT PLEAD INSANITY

SO PLEASE, PLEASE, JUDGE HAVE MERCY ON ME


BR.

YOU SEE I DROVE MY CAR THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE BAR

'CAUSE I WAS TOO DRUNK TO WALK

ALL I WANTED WAS TO SEE HER AGAIN 

SO WE COULD HAVE US A LITTLE TALK

AND I CAN'T ADMIT TO WHAT HAPPENED THEN 

IT'S ALL JUST A LITTLE BIT HAZY

CAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO THAT GIRL OF MINE 

I GET A LITTLE CRAZY


CH.
AND I'LL TAKE THE FIFTH, IíM GONNA DRINK IT DOWN

CAUSE I REFUSE TO ANSWER ON THE GROUNDS

THAT ANYTHING I SAY MIGHT INCRIMINATE

JUST LET MY BROKEN HEARTED PEERS DECIDE MY FATE

BECAUSE THE ONLY THING I'M GUILTY OF IS LOVIN' HER THE WAY I DO 

AND I'LL TAKE THE FIFTH, IF IT'S ALL THE SAME TO YOU


V.2
WELL ITíS TRUE YOUR HONOR NOW IT WAS ME

OUT IN FRONT OF HER HOUSE AT A QUARTER PAST THREE

I WAS CALLIN' HER NAME IN THE COLD, COLD RAIN

BUT JUST LET ME EXPLAIN BEFORE YOU HAUL ME AWAY

I KNOW A MAN IS JUDGED BY THE COMPANY HE KEEPS

BUT SINCE SHE LEFT IT'S BEEN THIS BOTTLE AND ME

IF YOU LOOKED INTO HER EYES THEN YOU'D UNDERSTAND

AND YOU'D BE SITTIN' HERE IN THE WITNESS STAND

I'VE GOT ONE MORE THING I'D LIKE TO SAY

BEFORE YOU LOCK ME AWAY

REPEAT CH.

WELL, I'LL TAKE THE FIFTH, IF IT'S ALL THE SAME TO YOU
