about

This song was inspired by having to go to work the next day after a night of heavy alcohol and drug consumption. I used to work at a liquor store and we'd have to unload at least 6 pallets (skids we'd call them) 6' high of booze. A reminder of the night before. I'm glad those days are behind me. I wrote this one on my 1969 Silvertone hollow body.

lyrics

Six 6’ Skids

It’s been a long day
Like a noose around my neck
I slept all day and worked all night
And the between time I gotta tell you
I got too high

I got cocaine and cigarettes
Coming up from the basement
I got booze flowing in my front door
I can’t take it
I got too high

I go to a show
And drink my face off filthy
I started off with some cheap champaign
And finished it off with some high end whiskey

(chorus)
I got six 6’ skids
In the morning to remind me
I got six 6’ skids
In the morning to remind me
I got too high

My coworker said something about the devil and a job well done
Well if cigarettes and drugs are a sin
Then Lord have mercy on us
I got too high
I got too high (short guitar part long vocal part)

Six 6’ skids
In the morning to remind me
Six 6’ skids
In the morning to remind me
Six 6’ skids
In the morning to remind me

Six 6’ skids
Six 6’ skids

I got too high
