Moon in my Shine

This week on Song Lyric Sunday, Jim Adams has given us the prompt of Earth/Wind/Fire/Air. I’ve chosen this killer love song by Tyler Farr, which is close to my heart: Whiskey in my Water.

 

Lyrics:

In my truck flying down a dirt road
Pickin’ you up, feelin’ kinda crazy
I think I’m in luck ’cause I know my baby

She slaps my knee says “boy why you smiling?”
Doing my best so hard to hide it
I know what’s up, so I just shoot her a wink

‘Cause when the sun goes down it’ll get a little hotter
Make an old boy’s heart beat a little harder
I know I can’t lose ’cause it’s going down smooth tonight, baby
One ain’t enough man may I have another
Sitting ’round the fire gettin’ drunk on each other
Every day I pray I thank God I got her she’s the moon in my shine
The whiskey in my water

(The whiskey in my water)

When we’re past Flint Bridge,
We’ll break out the bottle
Drop it down low, crank up the throttle
I’m good to go, ’cause I’ve got you tonight baby

‘Cause when the sun goes down it’ll get a little hotter
Make an old boy’s heart beat a little harder
I know I can’t lose ’cause it’s going down smooth tonight, baby
One ain’t enough man may I have another
Sitting ’round the fire gettin’ drunk on each other
Every day I pray I thank God I got her she’s the moon in my shine
The whiskey in my water

Sitting on this hill with her
Looking in them baby blues
Wishing that the sky would change
I’ve been thinking about it all damn day
I can hardly wait

‘Cause when the sun goes down it’ll get a little hotter
Make an old boy’s heart beat a little harder
I know I can’t lose ’cause it’s going down smooth tonight baby
One ain’t enough man may I have another
Sitting ’round the fire gettin’ drunk on each other
Every day I pray I thank God I got her she’s the moon in my shine
The whiskey in my water
The whiskey in my water


SongFacts

  • Tyler Farr: “‘Whiskey in My Water’ is just one of those songs that just came out of nowhere. The lyrics just flowed. It’s pretty much my way, or any other country boy’s way, of expressing to a girl, ‘Hey, you’re my kind of girl.”
  • The music video was directed by Chris Hicky (Chris Young’s “You“, Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah“). The clip was shot at the George Dickel distillery outside of Nashville.
  • Tyler Farr explained that he wanted to write a love song, and so he decided to write it from a country guy’s perspective. “As a songwriter or artist, there’s only so many ways you can say ‘I love you’ or ‘I think you’re beautiful,'” he said. “My way was to take that from a country boy standpoint and say ‘You’re the moon in my shine, whiskey in my water.'”

    Farr added that he had no hesitation about taking himself to a vulnerable place. “I don’t mind putting my heart out there for the audience, and for the country music fans … to be vulnerable with them … that’s my job as an artist,” he said. “That’s what country music is; it’s real songs about what real people do.”

  • The music video portrays a young couple passionately in love. The clip was directed by Chris Hicky, who has also worked with many other artists in the country music genre, including Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lamb
