Drinking Thing

Song Author Wayne Carson Performer: Gary Stewart Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Everyday I tell [F]myself it's tempo[G7]rary   
[F]That it's only cause she's [Dm]young
That makes her [F]want another [G7]man   
Even [C]though she makes me [F]feel unneces[G7]sary   
I've [F]found a way to [G7]help me under[C]stand

[C7]I've got this [F]drinking thing
To keep from [C]thinking things
Bout where you [F]been who you been with
What you've [C]done [C7]and it's a [F]lonely thing
But it's the [C]only thing
To keep a [F]foolish man in [G7]love hanging [C]on  

If I wait up at home [F]I'll only ask her [G7]questions
[F]She'd probably tell the [Dm]truth
[F]So I don't even [G7]ask   
So I [C]sit here on this [F]barstool feeling [G7]helpless
And I [F]wonder just how [G7]long a man can [C]last

[C7]I've got this [F]drinking thing
To keep from [C]thinking things
Bout where you [F]been who you been with
What you've [C]done [C7]and it's a [F]lonely thing
But it's the [C]only thing
To keep a [F]foolish man in [G7]love hanging [C]on  


Everyday I tell myself it's temporary
That it's only cause she's young
That makes her want another man
Even though she makes me feel unnecessary
I've found a way to help me understand

I've got this drinking thing
To keep from thinking things
Bout where you been who you been with
What you've done and it's a lonely thing
But it's the only thing
To keep a foolish man in love hanging on

If I wait up at home I'll only ask her questions
She'd probably tell the truth
So I don't even ask
So I sit here on this barstool feeling helpless
And I wonder just how long a man can last

I've got this drinking thing
To keep from thinking things
Bout where you been who you been with
What you've done and it's a lonely thing
But it's the only thing
To keep a foolish man in love hanging on
