"Nobody Drinks Alone" as written by and Matraca Maria/collins Berg....
You brought that bottle home in a paper sack
Drew the blinds and locked the doors
And there's nothing but empty there inside that glass
So you pour a little more
And there's no one there to judge you
At least that's what you tell yourself, but

[Chorus]
Don't you know
Nobody drinks alone
Every demon, every ghost
From your past
And every memory you've held back
Follows you home
Nobody drinks alone

You remember whiskey on your daddy's breath
So you always stick to wine
And you scared your little brother half to death
You just kept it all inside
You can hear your mama cryin'
Only now she cries for you, and

[Chorus]

Though you're only
Hey don't you let that feelin' fool ya

[Chorus]

Nobody drinks alone

    General Commentthis song is about an alcoholic (obviously)

    the song is about a man who drinks privately in his home to forget about his troubled past. But drinking doesn't heal him because all he is doing is wallowing in pain he can't erase.
