My good gal left and I can't stand the pain.
When she walked out my teardrops fell like rain.
So set-em up joe and give me some dimes.
I've got an appointment with a friend of mine.
I'm gonna get drunk and play hank williams all night long.

CHORUS:

Cause the wedding bells will never ring for me.
And that whipporwill ain't got no sympathy.
I'm broken down and torn apart,
The moanin blues and your cheatin heart.
I'm gonna get drunk and play hank williams all night long.

But lovesick blues sure ain't no state of mind.
And mixed with broken heart and juke joint wine.
But I ain't leavin done turned in my keys,
The bartender told me stay as long as you please.
I'm gonna get drunk and play hank williams all night long.

Ahh cause those wedding bells will never ring for me.
And that whipporwill ain't got no sympathy.
I'm broken down and torn apart,
Whiskey bent and your cheatin heart
I'm gonna get drunk and play hank williams all night long.

Cause the wedding bells will never ring for me.
Long gone lomesome blues sure fits me to a tee.
I'm broken down and torn apart,
Whiskey bent and your cheatin heart
I'm gonna get drunk and play hank williams all night long.

Why don't you love me like you used to do.
Yeah all night long.
