What good can drinkin' do, what good can drinkin' do?
Lord, I drink all night but the next day I still feel blue

There's a glass on the table, they say it's gonna ease all my pain,
And there's a glass on the table, they say it's gonna ease all my pain
But I drink it down, an' the next day I feel the same

Gimme whiskey, gimme bourbon, give me gin
Oh, gimme whiskey, give me bourbon, gimme gin
'Cause it don't matter what I'm drinkin', Lord, as long as it drown this sorrow I'm in

I start drinking Friday, I start drinking Friday night
Lord, I start drinking Friday, start drinking Friday night
But then I wake up on Sunday, child, there ain't nothin' that's right

My man he left me, child, he left me here
Yeah, my good man left me, went away and left me here
Lord, I'm feelin' lowdown, just give me another glass of beer

What good can drinkin' do, what good can drinkin' do?
Well, I drink all night but the next day I still feel blue!

    General CommentShe's realizing that drinking alcohol is not a good idea. It's a relief to hear this after hearing every other song out there glorify alcohol use.
