Trace Adkins – Sometimes A Man Takes A Drink lyrics

Last night he fell down but he got right back up
Had one too many I guess
Tomorrow he won't remember
Tonight he just wants to forget

The pressure he's under, the hell he's been in
The knife twisted up in his gut
When this is all over, he's gonna get sober
Right now he's just down on his luck

Sometimes a man takes a drink
So he can just throw his head back and laugh
At the things he can't change like the bills he can't pay
And all of those ghosts from the past

It's the crutch he leans on when things have gone wrong
Life didn't turn out like he planned
Sometimes a man takes a drink
Oh, sometimes a drink takes the man

Not that long ago he could take it or leave it
Now he wonders when it all changed
When did he stop being happy go lucky
And become a prisoner in chains

Trapped behind bars, no longer in charge
Where did the good times all go?
He knows it's got him 'cause he's on the bottom
Real close to out of control

Sometimes a man takes a drink
So he can just throw his head back and laugh
At the things he can't change like the bills he can't pay
And all of those ghosts from the past

It's the crutch he leans on when things have gone wrong
Life didn't turn out like he planned
Sometimes a man takes a drink
Oh, sometimes a drink takes the man
Sometimes a man takes a drink
Oh, sometimes a drink takes the man
