Dwight Yoakam — This Drinkin' Will Kill Me lyrics

(dwight yoakam)

They say this drinkin' will kill me
I don't know, oh lord, it might be true
If I stop I'll just die from your leavin'
So either way that I go, it's 'cause of you

Chorus:
Death can come from this broken heart
Or it can come from this bottle
So why prolong the agony
Hey, bartender, I think I'll hit the throttle

I don't care how the preacher might preach me
About the evils of being drunk with wine
I don't care how the doctor might warn me
'cause since you left, it's just a matter of time

Chorus:
Death can come from this broken heart
Or it can come from this bottle
So why prolong the agony
Hey, bartender, I think I'll hit the throttle

I don't care that my friends have all left me
'cause they swear that I have gone insane
And I don't care anymore about livin'
Without you, just the grave can ease the pain

Chorus:
Death can come from this broken heart
Or it can come from this bottle
So why prolong the agony
Hey, bartender, I think I'll hit the throttle

Yeah, they say this drinkin' will kill me
I don't know, oh lord, it might be true
If I stop I'll just die from your leavin'
So either way that I go, it's 'cause of you
Yeah, either way that I go, it's 'cause of you
Oh, anyway that I go, it's 'cause of you
