(3:04) Beautiful fiddling on a bluesy song about being left behind. Fortunately the bourbon was left behind as well. Elfy Kornfeld, vocals; Rick Russell, guitar; Terrell Jones, bass; Josh Sill, mandolin; Mark Lewis (guest artist), fiddle

Glass of water on the counter top
But I won't drink it, I won't spill a drop
Cause I can't swallow this bitter pill
That you left me on the window sill, the window sill

And it's all shattered dreams and broken glass
That has brought me to my knees on this jagged path
Cause you're not coming back

You went south without saying why
But I won't ask and I won't cry
It's just a sickness that I can't shake
And a fever that I can't break, I can't break

I got a bottle of bourbon and if it comes to pass
That I wake up in the morning I'll pour another glass
Cause you're not coming back

I will put on my best dress
And I will wait here cause all that I got left
Is more time until the fever breaks
And I can drink as long as it takes, long as it takes

Cause I got a jug of water and a bitter pill
That has brought me to my knees at the window sill
And it's all bourbon whiskey in a shattered glass
Cause you're not coming back
You're not coming back
You're not coming back
You're not coming back
