Well I don't know why you left me but I do know that your gone 
Over night you turned my life into a sad ol' song And one way or another, 
I gotta get over you Well there's only one thing left for me to do Lord, 
I don't wanna die of a broken heart That would be too sad Or drive my car off a cliff 

Well, that would just hurt too bad And if I tied a rope around my neck, 
I couldn't get my breath Well I think I'll just honky-tonk myself to death 
Well, I may get a little bit crazy but I don't wanna go insane Young women and ole whisky, 
Well it just may kill the pain I'm gonna find the highest barstool and climb up to the top. 

I think I'll just drink and two-step until I drop Lord, 
I don't wanna die of a broken heart That would be too sad Or drive my car off a cliff 
Well, that would just hurt too bad And if I tied a rope around my neck, 
I couldn't get my breath Well I think I'll just honky-tonk myself to death 

And if I tied a rope around my neck, 
I couldn't get my breath Well I think I'll just honky-tonk myself to death Yeah, 
I think I'll honky-tonk myself to death
