Old woman’s song

When i was a young girl
i rambled and i gambled
and i flirted with the cowboys
so pretty young and fine
I would never have a fear
I would drink whiskey and beer
and the bottles full of nectar
from the fruits upon the vine
So won't you open another bottle
cause my throught is thirsty and dry
i sure would like a taste of that whiskey
one more time before i die
Well i never had a husband
never had a real hometown
but the whole world was my lover
when i drank a bottle down
A party here and a party there
a pair of kinky underwears
and a pile of napkins
next to all the whiskey
down the stairs
So won't you open another bottle ...
I've done a lot of stupid things
but i never wore a ring
never found a man who was brave enough
to try and be my king
Still i kept looking for that prince
to bring me fortune and good luck
and thank God i had a bottle
when again my heart got stuck
So won't you open another bottle...
And now i'm an old woman
my life's a memory
there's times i don't remember
how things used to be
But there ain't no shame or sadness
for my life of drunken madness
if i had a second go you know...
i'd do it all again
So won't you open another bottle...

Most of the songs find their origine in the crazy adventures that she encounters and during her shows Ingrid likes to talk about how they came about.

And since the combination “singing & telling” tends to work out real fine on solo shows, Ingrid often plays her “naked songs” just by herself as singer songwriter.
