Drunk As Cooter Brown
Cassandra Wilson Lyrics


He was drunk as Cooter Brown
Words fell from his tongue
With a slurring silver sound
He come this way from the other side of town

He was drunk as Cooter Brown
And his coat hung 'round his shoulders
With a gangster's tone
A stylish man no woman leaves alone
He blamed the warmth of the evening
I blamed the circle 'round the moon
We spoke as if in solitude

While the world was spinning around us
And people started to stare
But I just didn't care
I just couldn't move
I was was floating on air

I knew
We two
Were drunk as Cooter Brown
Sooo...

He blamed the warmth of the evening
I blamed the circle 'round the moon
We spoke as if in solitude

While the world was spreading around us
And people started to sing
I just didn't care
I couldn't move
We were floating on air

Yes...
I knew
I too

Was drunk as Cooter Brown
I was just one step away
From that drunk to the floor sound
A lady's grace
I claimed to hold my ground

But I was drunk as Cooter Brown
While he poured the cup of his hand
Fell my old beau just to be sure
I wouldn't fall for a man like him in June

I blamed the warmth of the evening
And he blamed the circle 'round the moon
We spoke as if in solitude

While the world was spinning around us
And people started to sing
But i just didn't care
I just couldn't move
I was floating on air

I knew
We two
Were drunk as Cooter Brown

Yes, we were drunk as Cooter Brown

Crazy!

'Cause...so warm...so warm tonight...
Drunk as cooter brown...I'm high on life...
Excuse me sir...

Humming...

Hey!
