The Fourth Night Of My Drinking
On the first night of my drinking I was looking for my keys I was half-blind and stinking and bloody at the knees I had a built-in-fever and bright red cheeks My checks and balances up shit creek It was all in fun--I didn't hurt no one Until I crawled back for more Then there was damage done, but I made it home And woke up on the floor On the second night of my drinking i was looking for my car And as luck would have it, I found it parked outside my favorite bar I had a leather liver and lipstick streaks I had a disposition of valleys and peaks It was a lot of fun until I shot my gun And the neighbors called the law They didn't take me in, but they let it sink in That i was headed for a fall, headed for a fall On the third night of my drinking I was yelling at your house I had a stick in my hand and was convinced Some man was in there hiding out I had a foot on your door; you had me down on the floor I woke up next morning and my jaw was sore Then I was back at the bar and I was wanting some more Then I was back at the bar and I was wanting some more Then I was back at the bar and I was wanting some more Until they tried to cut me off On the fourth night of my drinking I had to go it all alone As my friend's list was shrinking and I was sinking like a stone I had a steely eye; I had a mouth full of grit; my disposition had gone full tilt There was a taste in my mouth; I wasn't liking it Guess it will be through with me before I'm through with it Guess it will be through with me before I'm through with it Guess it will be through with me before I'm through with it
