The doctor says I'm livin'
On precious borrowed time,
With all the time I'm givin'
To liquor beer and wine.

The X-rays of my liver
Look like molded old Swiss cheese.
My heart pumps blood and alcohol
Through hardended arteries.

Everybody knows me
Down at the local bar.
I drink until I can't see
And I wonder where you are.

I guess I let my health go
Since you quit bein' mine.
But there was nothing to replace you
Except liquor, beer, and wine.

Liquor, beer, and wine
Is the flashing sign I see.
Every single morning I get up
It's buzzin' down at me.

I look up to the heavens
For a ray of hope to shine.
And there it is in neon,
Liquor, beer, and wine.

Ever since you've left me
I've lived out of my car,
Parked between the liquor store,
And Uncle Bubba's bar.

Booze helps ease the heartache
But your constantly in mind.
As constant as that buzzing noise
Of Uncle Bubba's sign.

Liquor, beer, and wine
Is the flashing sign I see.
Every darn morning I get up
It's a buzzin' down at me.

I look up to the heavens
For a ray of hope to shine.
And there it is in neon,
Liquor, beer, and wine.
