Well I gotta get drunk 
And I sure do dread it 
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money 
Calling everybody honey 
And wind up singing the blues

I'll spend my whole paycheck 
On some old wreck 
And brother I can name you a few
But I gotta get drunk 
And I sure do dread it 
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do

I gotta get drunk I can't stay sober 
There's a lot of good people in town
Who'd like to hear me holler 
See me spend my dollars
And I wouldn't think of lettin' 'em down

There's a lot of doctors that tell me 
That I'd better start to slowin' it down
But there's more old drunkers 
Than there are old doctors
So I guess we'd better have another round

Well now I gotta get drunk 
And I sure do dread it 
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money 
Calling everybody honey 
And wind up singing the blues

I'll spend my whole paycheck 
On some old wreck 
And brother I can name you a few
Well I gotta get drunk 
And I sure do dread it 
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do

Well I gotta get drunk 
And I sure do dread it 
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money 
Calling everybody honey 
And wind up singing the blues

I'll spend my whole paycheck 
On some old wreck 
And brother I can name you a few
Well I gotta get drunk 
And I sure do dread it 
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
