​Hair Of The Dog

This song is by Dale Watson and appears on the album I Hate These Songs (1997) and on the album Preachin' To The Choir (2001).

I woke up this morning;, my head was poundin'
I can't believe I let me do it again
I stayed out all night drinkin',
What the hell must I be thinkin'
Well I swore I'd never drink like that back then
Swear I'll never drink again, again

Give me a hair of the dog that bit
'Cause I heard somewhere it takes the bite away
Give me a hair of the dog that bit me
They tell me that it helps to ease the pain
I swear I'll never drink again, again

That's an old familiar story that I've told a thousand times
Somehow I just can't get it through my mind
But my mem'ry gets much clearer when I look into a mirror
After huggin' that cold porcelain oh so tight
Prayin' Jesus just get me through the night

Give me a hair of the dog that bit
'Cause I heard somewhere it takes the bite away
Give me a hair of the dog that bit me
They tell me that it helps to ease the pain
I swear I'll never drink again, again
