Well, yes, people I am a poor, drunken hearted boy. Well, yeah, people I am a poor, drunken hearted boy. I have a whole ocean of trouble, And just a little, half pint of joy.
I drink because I'm worried, I don't drink because I'm dry. I know if I keep on drinkin', I'm liable to drink away my life. But that's alright.
Baby, bring me another half-a-pint, I'm trying to drown these blues, yes I am. People if you had my trouble, Baby, I know you'd be drinkin' too.
Alright. Baby, bring me some old Grandad's hundred proof. Don't play like that man, you'll make me thirsty. Oh, Lord.
Baby, if I keep on drinkin', I know I can't last too long. Woman, if I keep on drinkin', people ya know I can't last too long. That's alright, cause when I'm dead and buried, Please think about me when you hear this song.
