“Unwound” Lyrics

Give me a bottle
Of your very best
‘Cause I got a problem
I gotta drink off my chest
Gonna spend the night
Gettin’ down
‘Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

That woman that I had had wrapped around my finger just come unwound
She kicked me out of the house and tonight I’m whisky bound
I’m gonna be the drunkest fool in town
‘Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

Well she packed my bags
And opened up the door
I got a feelin’
She don’t want me around no more
She caught me in a lie
When I was messin’ ’round
And that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

That woman that I had had wrapped around my finger just come unwound
She kicked me out of the house and tonight I’m whisky bound
I’m gonna be the drunkest fool in town
‘Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound
