Well I gotta get drunk
And I sure do dread it
Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money
Call everybody honey
And wind up singing the blues
I'll spend my whole paycheck
On some old wreck
And brother I can name you a few
But I gotta get drunk
And I sure do dread it
Cause I know just what I'm gonna do

I gotta get drunk I just can't stay sober
There's a lot of good people in town
