Well it's another rainy night, here in my hometown,
And the rain beats down on the stone surround
Of the prison grounds
Well you can raise a smile but lower your eyes
When you pass by
You'd surely understand if you were the man
I guess it's fair to say I had more than my share that day And
You know, I've been told all prison bars are closed
[Chorus:] So won't you raise your glass and get drunk
For me cause I'm the fool who drank too much, you see.
So won't you set them up unselfishly Please raise your
Glass to foolish me.
When I left the factory gate I was perfectly straight and sober But I
Stopped for a short one which led to a long one and murder Well he
Was six feet five, about twice my size, but I was crazy Because I heard
Him say, my wife, in the day was no lady.
I guess it's fair to say
I had more than my share that day
And you know, I've been told all prison bars are closed
[Chorus:] So won't you raise your glass and drink
To me cause I'm the fool who left her alone you see.
So won't you set them up unselfishly Please raise
Your glass to foolish me.
