Chris Young — Drinkin' Me Lonely lyrics

I'm pushing you away each time I pull up that ole barstool,
And drownin' you in every drop I drink.
I'm telling you to go to hell but I'm talking to myself
''cause you're not around to hear what I think.
I'm trying to teach my heart to hate you,
But it ain't workin' right
Now the truth is I'm only drinkin' me lonely tonight.
Lord, it's more than just thirsty that I'm feeling inside
''cause these tears I've been crying have left me bone dry,
I wish the bartender had a cure I could buy,
But the truth is I'm only, drinkin' me lonely tonight.

He said I'd have to choose between your love and this old bar room,
And I just laughed, but I guess you knew best,
Who cares whose right or wrong tonight, my better half is gone
And this whisky's laying claim to all that's left.
So I'll just order up another and pretend I'm all right,
When the truth is I'm only drinkin' me lonely tonight.
And Lord, it's more than just thirsty that I'm feeling inside
''cause these tears I've been crying have left me bone dry,
And I wish the bartender had a cure I could buy,
'cause I'm drinking me lonely tonight
