[Verse]
           D
It's the middle of the week

I'm just drivin' home
     G
The sun's goin' down and nothin's goin' on
             D
They play "Whiskey River" I turn it up
      G
And suddenly it hit me how thirsty I was
           C
It's only Wednesday night gotta get up early
    G
To tell you the truth I ain't that worried
        D
'Bout that right now
                               G
So I think I'm gonna head downtown and get loud


[Chorus]
          D
Well it's one of them nights
                              G
Feels like we ought to be drinkin'
          D
We gotta get a little rowdy
                                G
Like we're livin' in a country song
      C
Well some nights are made for stayin' at home
   G
Sittin' on the couch and watchin' TV alone
      D
But tonight it sure feels like
               G
We oughta be drinkin'


[Verse]
 D
I'll be dammed I'm not the only one here
                 G
Looks like the whole dang town's in the mood for a beer
              D
It ain't the weekend ain't even two-for-one night
             G
Guess we're just drawn to that heavenly neon light
          C
I might hate my job, what's your excuse
               G
You've got a broken heart or you're just thirsty too
          D
Could be anything but whatever the case
G
I think we're all plannin' on gettin' shit-faced



[Chorus]
          D
Well it's one of them nights
                              G
Feels like we ought to be drinkin'
          D
We gotta get a little rowdy
                                G
Like we're livin' in a country song
       C
Well some nights are made for stayin' at home
    G
Sittin' on the couch and watchin' TV alone
      D
But tonight it sure feels like
                  G
We oughta be drinkin'


[Interlude]
D  G  D  G


[Outro]
     C
Oh, some nights are made for stayin' at home
        G
Roll a big fat one and watchin' Nashville alone
      D
But tonight it sure feels like
                 G
We oughta be drinkin'

         D
Honey tonight it sure feels like
               G
We oughta be drinkin'

        D
Yeah tonight it sure feels like
                  G
We oughta be drinkin'
