"Stinking Of Whiskey Blues" as written by Robert John Lange, Stephen Maynard Clark, Philip Kenneth Collen, Richard Savage, Joseph Elliott and Richard John Cyril Allen....
I've heard it said it takes twice the length
Of an affair for the heart to heal
And if that's the case then I guess in 20 years
I'll be sitting in this bar room still

Cause you were the one
I felt that I was lucky just to have you by my side
Now it's 10 years gone and I'm sitting all alone
With this bottle for a place to hide

Bar time is 6:30
And you're still on my mind
By 8:15 I'll have had a couple in me
And I've already forgotten you were even mine

By 9:43 I'll be regretting my decisions
And cursing this city of sin
By 10:15 I'll be stinking of whiskey
And thinking of you again

I've heard it said by many of my friends
You were a girl I should leave alone
They said all you're gonna get
Is a pocket full of regrets and broken down rotary phone

Now all I got are those and 15 "I told you so's"
So I guess I'm the one to blame
Sitting on a stool feeling like a broken fool
A tarnished drunkard with a tarnished name
