Drinkin' Song

	  		 
A 
INTRO 
 
 
A                       D 
Jesus has my heart, but whiskey's got my liver, 
E                            A 
Floatin' through life like a raft on a river. 
  D                       A 
I know what's right and I know what's wrong, 
  E                             
I know how to quit but now its been too long. 
         A                D 
Just the other day, I was thinkin' to myself, 
   E                        A 
At least I still think to myself. 
     D                  A 
Well everything works except me of course, 
  E                    A 
I still got some of my health. 
 
 
 
       D                   A 
Well I grit my teeth and I wish, 
        E                   A 
I could stand up and ram my fist 
      D                      A        B7         E 
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in. 
      A              D         E                 A 
I got sober, now its over, I'm back to drinkin' again. 
 
 
                      D 
See the time before I quit, 
       E                      A 
I quit quittin' the very next day. 
D                   A                      
So many times, hell I lost count, 
  E                        A 
I guess it just works that way. 
                                 D 
See I forgot how it felt to feel good in the mornin', 
E                          A 
Mornin's were for goin' to bed. 
        D                           A 
And I'd roll out the rack, a monkey on my back, 
         E                A 
I need a drink to ease my head. 
 
 
 
       D                   A 
Well I grit my teeth and I wish, 
        E                   A 
I could stand up and ram my fist 
      D                      A        B7         E 
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in. 
      A              D             E                 A 
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again.

INSTRUMENTAL 
 
 
 
    A                           D 
See I'm not saying that its the right way, 
E                             A 
Hell, its really no way at all. 
        D                                   A 
But you know, it seems like I'm never gonna get too tired, 
E                    A 
 Of feelin' ten feet tall. 
                                   D 
So you may wanna watch what you're doin', 
          E                        A 
Or better yet you can just watch me. 
    D                   A 
And its not always entertaining, 
                     E                     A 
But you get what you pay for, and baby its free. 
 
 
 
 
       D                   A 
Well I grit my teeth and I wish, 
        E                   A 
I could stand up and ram my fist 
      D                      A        B7         E 
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in. 
      A              D             E                 A 
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again. 
       D                   A 
Yeah I grit my teeth and I wish, 
        E                   A 
I could stand up and ram my fist 
      D                      A        B7         E 
Right through this wall that keeps on keepin' me in. 
      A              D             E                 A 
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again. 
                     D             E                 A              
I got sober, now its over, and its back to drinkin' again.
