"Drink A Beer" as written by Christopher Stapleton and Jim Beavers....
When I got the news today
I didn't know what to say.
So I just hung up the phone.
I took a walk to clear my head,
This is where the walking lead
Can't believe you're really gone
Don't feel like going home

So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good lord knows
The reasons why it gets
Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don't make sense
I can't make it all make sense

So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

So long my friend, until we meet again
I'll remember you
And all the times we used to
Sit right here on the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
Drink a beer, drink a beer.

    General Comment"Drink a Beer" is a song written by Jim Beavers and Chris Stapleton, and recorded by American country music singer Luke Bryan. It was released in November 2013 as the third single from his fourth studio album, Crash My Party. Bryan has described "Drink a Beer" as "the coolest sad song ever" and, despite not having a hand in writing it, connects with the story after having lost both of his siblings.[1] He dedicated his performance of the song at the CMA Awards on November 6, 2013 to his late siblings Chris and Kelly
