A country song for my friend Will, drinking every day and living with his mother

lyrics

My mind is bent
My kidneys are rent
And I’ll tell you I’ve been black and blue

My moneys been spent
On the cold steady flow
Of the booze that will keep me afloat

The whiskey ran dry
And my woman did fly
Away with the sun and good dreams

But I’m stuck out here
In the drudge and the dreary
House where I think I may die

Oh she been
She been indeed
And she’ll be to the end of all days.

And the whisky slur
Puts my thoughts on her
The reason that I play this game

Down
I’m going down
Down for her love and pain
I’m going down today

There’ll be some day
When the rain goes away
But O’Malley she been a bit grey.

It comes in bursts
My unquenchable thirst
But forgiveness for my wicked ways

Is what I ask
As I reach for my flasks
If she dumps me at least I’m ok

Oh she been
She been indeed
And she’ll be to the end of all days.

And the whisky slur
Puts my thoughts on her
The reason that I play this game
