Well she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Much more so than you or I
And she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Drain the well and leave you dry
Well she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Much more so than you or I
And she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Close the bar down every night
Close the bar down every night

Well young lady, pretty lady
Much more so than you or I
Young lady, pretty lady
She's got the diamonds in her eyes
Young lady, pretty lady
Much more so than you or I
Young lady, pretty lady
Reckless and wild

She's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Much more so than you or I
And she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Drain the well and leave you dry
She's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Much more so than you or I
She's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Close the bar down every night

Well the boys say Kate I need ya
The boys say please come home
The boys say Kate you know I love ya,
But Kate is long gone.

And the ships have all come in
But no sign of her is found
She drank the whiskey
To the bottom of the ocean drowned

'Cause she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Much more so than you or I
And she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Drain the well and leave you dry
And she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Much more so than you or I
And she's a drinker, a heavy drinker
Close the bar down every night
