You ask me if I'm happy now
That's good as any joke I've heard 
It seems since I've seen you last 
I done forget the meaning of the words 
If happiness is empty rooms
And drinkin' in the afternoon 
Well I guess I'm as happy as a clam 
But if it's got a thing to do 
With smilin' or forgettin' you 
Well I don't guess that I could say I am 

Did you ever see a down and outer waking up alone  Without a blanket on to keep him from the dew
When the water from the weeds had soaked the papers 
He'd been puttin' in his shoes to keep the ground from comin' though 
And his future feels as empty as the pockets in his pants 
 Because he's never seen a single dream come true
That's the way that I've been feelin' since the day I started falling 
From the bottle to the bottom stool by stool 
Learnin' hard to live with losin' you 

You wonder if I'm better off
With freedom now to do the things I choose 
Well all my times my own and 
I've got nothin' left but sleepin' time to lose
There's no one here to carry on 
If I stay out the whole night long 
Or give a tinkers damn if I don't call 
I'm livin' like I wanted to
And doin' things I wanna do 
And nothin' means a thing to me at all 

Did you ever see a down and outer waking up alone  Without a blanket on to keep him from the dew
When the water from the weeds had soaked the papers 
He'd been puttin' in his shoes to keep the ground from comin' though 
And his future feels as empty as the pockets in his pants 
 Because he's never seen a single dream come true
That's the way that I've been feelin' since the day I started falling 
From the bottle to the bottom stool by stool 
Learnin' hard to live with losin' you
