A bottle of Bulleit
And a bowl of rice
Never drank so warm
Never bit so nice
I think of you whenever I am in this place
With a bottle of Bulleit
And a bowl of rice

The senoritas are folkloring outside
I want so much to join them
But my rhythm ain’t right
I’ve I could only barter one song of light
For a bottle of Bulleit and a bowl of rice

We came through here just you and me
In the back of a pickup without windows to see
We held each other through the blackest pitch
They sent you back and left me naked in a ditch.

Oh God help you
If you come a-lookin’ for me
I’ll be sittin’ right here
But you will not see
I’ll be crying for you through my sightless eyes
Into my bottle of Bulleit
And my bowl of rice
Into my bottle of Bulleit
And my bowl of rice
