lyrics

Folks think I drink too much
That I medicate till' I levitate and go flying on my rubber crutch
But I ain't drinking to forget her, I know I never will anyhow
There's no occasion, no celebration, it's just my occupation now

So when the booze is gone, I put the cap back on
So I can lock my tears inside
When it's good and tight I get to feeling right
Till' my blues they get loose the next night
I ain't no saint, I ain't your role model
I'm just a poor man who's trying to leave his blues at the bottom of the bottle

I don't care just where I'll be
Whether or not the weathers cold or hot
You know it's all the same to me
Cause I'll be in some old dive joint
, till' they turn out the neon sign
Ain't no amnesty for a reffuge with a worried mind like mine

So when the booze is gone, I put the cap back on
So I can lock my tears inside
When it's good and tight I get to feeling right
Till' my blues they get loose the next night
I ain't no saint, I ain't your role model
I'm just a poor man who's trying to leave his blues at the bottom of the bottle

Well I might be right, or wrong
but I spend each night wondering how my life
Became a goddamned country song
But I'm the king of this old dive joint
And the bar stool is my throne
All the girls one meets are all the drunks and the cheats
But it sure beats drinking alone

So when the booze is gone, I put the cap back on
So I can lock my tears inside
When it's good and tight I get to feeling right
Till' my blues they get loose the next night
I ain't no saint, I ain't your role model
I'm just a poor boy who's trying to leave his blues at the bottom of the bottle
