Dead, Drunk, And Naked Lyrics

When I was a young boy I sniffed a lot of glue
Mom sent me to rehab, they told me what to do
We didn't have much money; the lord picked up the tab
They made me write him love songs, sitting in my room

Now I just drink whiskey and drive around my friends
Get a haircut, get a job, maybe born again
And if you're living badly, we'll tell you how to live
Dead, Drunk, And Nakedâ?¦

If you're out there listening, I just want you to know
I been doing just fine, psychiatrists tell me so
My scars are patched up; my arms have almost healed
My demons almost tranquilized, my pains almost killed

Me and old Jack Daniel's, become the best of friends
We got all them Baptist's to die for our sins
I know the lord is coming
The South will rise again! (Dead, drunk, and naked)

Daddy used to tell me, everything comes down to what they say about you when you're not around
And I wish that he was here now, I'm sure he would be proud
No one talks about me; the voices are too loud.

So if you come to see me, I'm sure you'll be impressed
By how well I'm behaving and how well I'm dressed
If you come to see me, hope you're coming soon

Dead, drunk, and naked

Dead, Drunk, And Naked
  • This is about Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Allen Collins. Some of the anecdotes mentioned in the lyrics:
    Collins signed up for wood shop class in High School so that he could sniff glue all day. On one occasion, he passed out in class from sniffing glue.
    In 1986, Collins was involved in a death that resulted from drunk driving. His girlfriend was riding in the car with him when he crashed. She was killed while Allen Collins was paralyzed.
    Collins was convicted of DUI manslaughter after pleading no contest. He had a bad habit of drinking throughout his years with Lynyrd Skynyrd. In 1990, he died of pneumonia.
    At one point, Collins father forced him to cut his hair and get a job.
  • The entire album deals with the history of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
