Livin alone,
Singin my songs
Thinkin bout the good times
When you were my own
Lady you taught me
How to hurt and cry,
And each day I'm not with you
I die more inside
Honey sweet lady why did you go?
And leave me here dying
All alone in my world?
It's all gone wrong
Since you've been gone
So give me 5 shots of whiskey
To help kill the misery and pain
You put me through
Thanks for the good times,
For they were the best of my life
I spent with you
Now what can I do?
Walkin' on Broadway
Not havin a care
I see you and your new guy
Who's strokin' your hair
And I can't keep staying
Here in my hometown,
Got to get on with my life somehow
It's all gone wrong
Since you've been gone
So give me 5 shots of whiskey
To help kill the misery and pain
You put me through
Thanks for the good times,
For they were the best of my life
I spent with you
And I still love you
