Well, I don't know why you left me
But I do know that you're gone
Colder nights, you've turned my life into a sad ol' song
And one way or another, I gotta get me over you
And I think there's only one thing left for me to do.

Lord, I don't wanna die of a broken heart
That would be too sad
Or drive my car off a cliff
You see, that would just hurt too bad
And if I tied a rope around my neck
I couldn't get my breath
So I think I'll just honky tonk myself to death.

Well, I might get a little bit crazy
But I don't wanna go insane
Young Wendy and Dan's ol' whiskey
Well, it might just kill the pain
I'm gonna find the highest barstool and I'mma climb up to the top
Yeah, I think I'll just drink and two-step till I drop.

Oh, I don't wanna die of a broken heart
That would be too sad
Or drive my car off a cliff
You see, that would just hurt too bad
And if I tied a rope around my neck
I couldn't get my breath
So I think I'll just honky tonk myself to death.

--- Instrumental ---

And if I tied a rope around my neck
I couldn't get my breath
So I think I'll just honky tonk myself to death.

Hey, I think I'll honky tonk myself to death...
