Killin' Time Lyrics

You Were The First Thing That I Thought Of
When I Thought I Drank You Off My Mind
When I Get Lost In The Liquor
You're The Only One I Find

And If I Did The Things I Oughta
You Still Would Not Be Mine
So I'll Keep A Tight Grip On The...

    I think he's singing about marijuana in a round about way. He tried marijuana and liked it but can't smoke it because it's illegal or whatever reason. "You were the first thing that I thought of when I thought I drank you off my mind, when I get lost in the liquor, you're the only one I find.He's killin' time because someday he knows it will be legal but he just don't know when so he'll keep a tight grip on the bottle gettin' lose killin' time.

    Marijuana was legal in the u.s. up until 1937. He spent all his life just dyin' for a love that passed away. The love is marijuana.

    It seems he still smokes it though legal or not. "There's a menu of my sorrows, if this is the only price I'll pay, I'll be a happy man when I go and I can't wait another day.

    Just my interpration, listen to it again and see if marijuana doesn't fit in there.

    This is a really neat song to listen to, as well as very inspiring. I think it's about a man who can't win the love of his life, so he drinks alcohol in order to forget about her, but still remembers her (hence the lines "So I'll keep a tight grip on the bottle" and "You were the first thing that I thought of when I thought I drank you off my mind").

    Kudos to Clint Black for writing such a great and beautiful song. :)
