Drinkin' Song

Song Author Jason Boland Submitted by: Anonymous
[A]    
[A]Jesus has my heart, but [D]whiskey's got my liver,
[E]Floatin' through life like a [A]raft on a river.
I [D]know what's right and I [A]know what's wrong,
I [E]know how to quit but now its been too long.
Just the [A]other day, I was [D]thinkin' to myself,
At [E]least I still think to my[A]self.
Well [D]everything works ex[A]cept me of course,
I [E]still got some of my [A]health.

Well I [D]grit my teeth and I [A]wish,
I could [E]stand up and ram my [A]fist
Right [D]through this wall that [A]keeps on [B7]keepin' me [E]in.  
I got [A]sober, now its [D]over, I'm [E]back to drinkin' a[A]gain.

See the time before I [D]quit,
I quit [E]quittin' the very next [A]day.
[D]So many times, hell [A]I lost count,
I [E]guess it just works that [A]way.
See I forgot how it felt to feel [D]good in the mornin',
[E]Mornin's were for goin' to [A]bed.
And I'd [D]roll out the rack, a monkey [A]on my back,
I need a [E]drink to ease my [A]head.

Well I [D]grit my teeth and I [A]wish,
I could [E]stand up and ram my [A]fist
Right [D]through this wall that [A]keeps on [B7]keepin' me [E]in.  
I got [A]sober, now its [D]over, and its [E]back to drinkin' a[A]gain.

[D]    [A]    [E]    [A]    [D]    [A]    [B7]    [E]    [A]    [D]    [E]    [A]    
See [A]I'm not saying that its the [D]right way,
[E]Hell, its really no way at all[A].  
But you [D]know, it seems like I'm never gonna [A]get too tired,
[E] Of feelin' ten feet [A]tall.
So you may wanna watch what you're [D]doin',
Or better [E]yet you can just watch me[A].  
And [D]its not always enter[A]taining,
But you get what you [E]pay for, and baby its [A]free.

Well I [D]grit my teeth and I [A]wish,
I could [E]stand up and ram my [A]fist
Right [D]through this wall that [A]keeps on [B7]keepin' me [E]in.  
I got [A]sober, now its [D]over, and its [E]back to drinkin' a[A]gain.
Yeah I [D]grit my teeth and I [A]wish,
I could [E]stand up and ram my [A]fist
Right [D]through this wall that [A]keeps on [B7]keepin' me [E]in.  
I got [A]sober, now its [D]over, and its [E]back to drinkin' a[A]gain.
I got sober, now its [D]over, and its [E]back to drinkin' a[A]gain.


Jesus has my heart, but whiskey's got my liver,
Floatin' through life like a raft on a river.
I know what's right and I know what's wrong,
I know how to quit but now its been too long.
Just the other day, I was thinkin' to myself,
At least I still think to myself.
Well everything works except me of course,
I still got some of my health.

Well I grit my teeth and I wish,
I could stand up and ram my fist
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in.
I got sober, now its over, I'm back to drinkin' again.

See the time before I quit,
I quit quittin' the very next day.
So many times, hell I lost count,
I guess it just works that way.
See I forgot how it felt to feel good in the mornin',
Mornin's were for goin' to bed.
And I'd roll out the rack, a monkey on my back,
I need a drink to ease my head.

Well I grit my teeth and I wish,
I could stand up and ram my fist
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in.
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again.


See I'm not saying that its the right way,
Hell, its really no way at all.
But you know, it seems like I'm never gonna get too tired,
Of feelin' ten feet tall.
So you may wanna watch what you're doin',
Or better yet you can just watch me.
And its not always entertaining,
But you get what you pay for, and baby its free.

Well I grit my teeth and I wish,
I could stand up and ram my fist
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in.
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again.
Yeah I grit my teeth and I wish,
I could stand up and ram my fist
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in.
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again.
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again.
