Gary Stewart – Drinkin' Thing lyrics
Every day... I tell myself, it's temporary
That it's only 'cause she's young
That makes her want... Another man

Eventhough she makes me feel un-necessary
I've found a way to help me understand

I've got this drinkin' thing
To keep from thinkin' things
About where you've been
Who you've been with
What you've done

And it's a lonely thing
But, it's the only thing
To keep a foolish man in love
Hangin' on...

If I wait at home, I'll only ask her questions
She'd probably the truth, so I don't even ask
So, I sit here on this barstool, feelin' helpless
And I wonder, just how long... A man can last

I've got this drinkin' thing
To keep from thinkin' things
About where you've been
Who you've been with
What you've done

And it's a lonely thing
But it's the only thing
To keep a foolish man in love
Hangin' on...

I've got this drinkin' thing
To keep from thinkin' things
About where you've been
Who you've been with
What you've done...

(music fades)
