One Drunkard's Blues


Lonely nights which seem sublime
Can lead to broken hearts over time
So I'll sit here and continue drinkin'
To lessen the agitation of me thinkin'
But it hurts so very bad
To ruin what I could've had

I came home one night drunk
With my breath smellin' like skunk
She said remove 'em grapefields from between your teeth
And I didn't want to start no beef

So I said honey I better get in touch with you later
She said forget it you're never touchin' me again

Hell, it's hard not to smile
