I am drunk now
Will be sober after a while
Well, now I am drunk now
Will be sober after a while
Well now, if I don't get sober
Hoo-ooo-brown, please why don't you let me die?

My fairasee made me mad
Whiskey now is all I known
Well, my baby made me mad
Whiskey, I said is all I've known
Well, now if you don't want me, brown babe
Hm-mm-well, why in the world don't you let me go?

You known I drink whiskey
Now before we ever met
Well now she known I drink whiskey
Now before we ever met
And I'll guarantee, know right now
Um-um-well, that I'd been drinking whiskey yet

(piano)

Yes, I meant it, babe
Before I take this drink
Mm-mm, just remember babe
Before I take a drink
Well now, I wanna give you plenty time
Woo-well brown, now in this world to think

I am sorry, now
That I'm a whiskey-headed man
I say I'm sorry, now
That I'm a whiskey-headed man
But now I just want you go home
Hoo-well brown babe
Now do the best you can.
