Well I'm broke, lovesick, and driftin'
and I've done a lot of hard, hard livin'
Livin' on the road
and seein' how it goes
I grew up fast and it shows
Cause livin' the nightlife
is where I belong
and drinkin' with the drunks
who don't want to go home
and it's hard, it's rough
but I can't quite get enough
Oh I'm doin' the best that I can
Well I'm broke, lovesick, and driftin'
and I've had my share of good women
I once had a good home,
a wife to call my own,
but now I'm here drunk and alone
Cause livin' the nightlife
is where I belong
and drinkin' with the drunks
who don't want to go home
and it's hard, it's rough
but I can't quite get enough
Oh I'm doin' the best that I can
