Watching Chris Janson at the piano performing his thoughtful track "Drunk Girl" at the Grand Ole Opry is a must-see! Enjoy the live performance here.

Country music star Chris Janson’s powerful track “Drunk Girl” highlights an important topic— respecting women in every single situation.

“It’s drawing tears from people’s eyes, and pulling stories from men and women alike who might not have had a voice or a platform to talk about it. It’s amazing. It’s cool to see songs bring emotions out in people. It almost means more to me than getting played on the air – even when I just play it live. It reaches into peoples’ heartstrings and pulls on every single one of them. That feeling is hard to describe. I’ve never had a song do that. ‘Holdin’ Her’ has been the closest thing to it. It’s an emotional song, and one about my family. But this one is very universal. It’s for everybody. A lot of people have been there around the world – girls and guys alike. It’s a natural occurrence. You’re probably going to have one too many one night, and this is going to happen. It’s hard to believe, but when you see it with everyday average people, but it’s very humbling, to say the least,” Janson told Billboard about playing “Drunk Girl” for live audiences.

“Drunk Girl” Lyrics 

Couple of cover charge stamps got her hand looking like a rainbow
In and out of every bar on a whim just like the wind blows
She’s either a bachelorette or coming off a breakup
Take a drunk girl home

She’s bouncing like a pinball
Singing every word she never knew
Dancing with her eyes closed like she’s the only one in the room
Her hairs a perfect mess, falling out of that dress
Take a drunk girl home

Take a drunk girl home
Let her sleep all alone
Leave her keys on the counter your number by her phone
Pick up her life she threw on the floor
Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door
That’s how she knows the difference between a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

You leave her drive for a dive
You get something bad to eat
They’re singing closing time at that little bar across the street
Then two by two strangers and lovers headed for the covers hooking up
That TV in your two bedroom sounds turned off
Through the paper thin walls you can hear the neighbor’s cigarette cough
There’s a million things you could be doing, but there’s one thing you’re damn sure glad you did

Take a drunk girl home
Let her sleep all alone
Leave her keys on the counter your number by the phone
Pick up her life she threw on the floor
Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door
That’s how you know the difference in a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

Took a drunk girl home
In the sober light of dawn
She left you a message she thanked you on the phone
Cause you picked up her life she threw on the floor
You left the hall lights on walked out and locked the door
That’s how she knows the difference between a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

You took a drunk girl home
Take a drunk girl home
