Well I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
Gonna spend my money callin' everybody honey
And wind up singin' the blues.

I'll spend my whole paycheck on some old wreck
And brother I can name you a few
Well, I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do

Well, I gotta get drunk, Lord, I can't stay sober
There's a lot of good people in town
They love to hear me holler, see me spend my dollar
I wouldn't dream of lettin 'em down.

Well, there's a lot of good doctors keep a-tellin' me, George
You'd better start slowin' it down
But there's more old drunks than there are old doctors
So I guess we'd better have another round.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money callin' everybody honey
And wind up singin' the blues.

I'll spend my whole paycheck on some old wreck
And baby, I can name you a few
Well, I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do...
