The Ergs! – Stinking Of Whiskey Blues lyrics

I've heard it said it takes twice the length
Of an affair for the heart to heal
And if that's the case then I guess in 20 years
I'll be sitting on this barstool still

Cause you were the one
I felt that I was lucky just to have you by my side
Now it's 10 years gone and I'm sitting all alone
Drinking and stuff

Bar time is 6: 30
And you're still on my mind
By 8: 15 I already have a couple in me
And I've already forgotten you were even mine

By 9: 43 I'll be regretting my decisions
And cursing this city of sin
By 10: 15 I'll be stinking of whiskey
And thinking of you again

I've heard it said by many of my friends
You were a girl I should leave alone
They said all you're gonna do is check
Into your room only to find a Gideon's Bible

Now all I got are those and 15 "I told you so's"
So I guess I'm the one to blame
Sitting on a stool feeling like a broken fool
A tarnished drunkard with a tarnished name
