Sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a darn fool
That's what I'm a doin' today
Sitting' here drinkin', tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away

Well now I couldn't make her stay, well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try
So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye

Every time we disagreed, she was always askin' me
"Are you a man or a mouse?"
Now that she's gone, she probably thinks I'm home
Just a mopin' around the house

She probably thinks that she's the one thing
I just couldn't get along without
Well wouldn't it surprise her I got a sympathizer
As long as these bottles hold out

Well I'm sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a darn fool
That's what I'm a doin' today
And I'm sitting' here drinkin', tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away

Well now I couldn't make her stay, well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try
So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye

Every time I try to sit down and talk to her
It always end up in a fuss
I tried to reason with her right up to the time
That she got on that greyhound bus

It would be better if I could forget her
'Cause she sure forgot about me
And if it takes all night I'm gonna' do it right
I'm gonna' sit here till I can't see

Well I'm sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a darn fool
That's what I'm a doin' today
And I'm sittin' here drinkin', tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away

Well now I couldn't make her stay, well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try
So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye

Well I'm sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a darn fool
That's what I'm a doin' today
And I'm sittin' here drinkin', tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away

Well now I couldn't make her stay, well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try
So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye
I said, "So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye"
I said, "So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye"
