Drinkin' Thing Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Every day I tell myself, it's temporary
That it's only 'cause she's young
That makes her want another man
Even though she makes me feel unnecessary
I've found a way to help me understand

I've got this drinkin' thing
To keep from thinkin' things
About where you've been
Who you've been with, what you've done

And it's a lonely thing
But, it's the only thing
To keep a foolish man in love, hangin' on

If I wait up at home, I'll only ask her questions
She'd probably the truth, so I don't even ask
So, I sit here on this barstool, feelin' helpless
And I wonder, just how long a man can last

I've got this drinkin' thing
To keep from thinkin' things
About where you've been
Who you've been with, what you've done

And it's a lonely thing
It's the only thing
To keep a foolish man in love, hangin' on

I've got this drinkin' thing
To keep from thinkin' things
About where you've been
Who you've been with, what you've done
