"They Oughta Name A Drink After You" as written by and John Prine....
Oh I get drunk most every night, seems like all we do is fight
The more I drink, the less I feel blue
Sometimes I feel like an awful fool
Spendin' my life on an old bar stool
And yes I guess they oughta name a drink after you
[Incomprehensible]

If this date were to be our last, I'd never sit down this glass
It'd take all the booze in the world to forget you
You've left my heart a vacant lot, I'll fill it with another shot
And yes I guess they oughta name a drink after you
[Incomprehensible]

Looks like I had my fill, guess I better pay my bill
When I started out I only meant to have a few
Someone just said that you left town, I better get a double round
And yes I guess they oughta name a drink after you
Yes I guess they oughta name a drink after you

    General CommentThis song is pure genius! The person in this song likes a good drink but it seems that drink fills the empty hole in the persons life. Drink is used to cover up the unhappiness in their life. As a result, the drink only makes things worse. An underated song from a very underated artist.
