Drunk
Totally drained
On the verge of going crazy
On the edge of insane
I know you'd prayed I'd make it
But I never pulled through
I gave up on going on girl
Just like I gave up on you

But don't you cry darlin'
Though it's a cryin' shame
I was hooked on that whisky so bad
I didn't know my name when I died
Don't cry darlin'
You know it's not you're fault
I was stealin' time from the devil and I
Just got caught

You know Hon
David left you so long ago
He didn't want to darlin'
Aw but his dying words told you so
But that strong stuff
Aww it was always his weakness
But hell any man can be a fool
And I know that he was so ashamed and sorry
For all those bad things that he did to you

But don't you cry darlin'
Though it's a cryin' shame
I was hooked on that whisky so bad
I didn't know my name when I died
Don't cry darlin'
Well it's not you're fault
I was stealin' time from the devil and I
Just got caught

Don't you cry darlin'

Though it's a cryin' shame
I was hooked on that bottle so bad
I didn't know my name when I died
Don't cry darlin'
