Has it been a year since the last time I've seen her
My God I could swear it was ten
And the ocean of liquor I drank to forget her
Is gonna kill me but I'll drink till then

I've been livin' in hell with a bar for a cell
Still payin' for my cheatin' crime
Oh, and I got a long way to go, still doin' time

Still doin' time in a honky tonk prison
Still doin' time, where a man ain't forgiven
My poor heart is breakin' but there's no escapin'
Each morning I wake up and I find
Still doin' time

Oh, when you're caught cheatin' twice it's twenty to life
In a place where the sun never shines
And tomorrow you're gonna find me right here
Still doin' time

Still doin' time in a honky tonk prison
Still doin' time, where a man ain't forgiven
My poor heart is breakin' but there's no escapin'
Each morning I wake up and I find,
Still doin' time
Still doin' time
