Lyrics

Ho! He! Ho! He! You're just as drunk as me
Ho! He! Ho! He! Headin' for the deep blue sea
I went down to the corner, just for to meet my pal
I found him talking on the sidewalk, talking to my gal
I went back to the bar room, to get another drink of gin
But the first thing I knew I was reeling, rocking drunk again

Ho! He! Ho! He! You're just as drunk as me
Ho! He! Ho! He! Headin' for the deep blue sea

I kept on drinking liquor, to way out in the night
My pal came into the bar room and we had an awful fight
I reached down for my razor and then we messed around
But when I drew my pistol, I quickly smoked him down

Hey! He! Hey! He! You're just as drunk as me
Hey! He! Hey! He! Headin' for the deep blue sea

So I headed on back to the bar room, stopping in at the bar
And there I met a policeman, sitting in a motor car
We kept drinking lots of liquor, that flat-footed cop, and I
I thought he would never leave me. I knew that he had to die
And I laid my head on the bar room floor

Never get drunk anymore
I pawned my watch, my golden chain
I pawned my baby's diamond ring

Hey! He! Hey! He! You're just as drunk as me
Hey! He! Hey! He! Headin' for the deep blue sea

Hey! He! Hey! He! You're just as drunk as me
Hey! He! Hey! He! Headin' for the deep blue sea
