Drink Up and Be Somebody Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Well, I gotta keep my reputation, I gotta keep my pride
Can't let you know you've hurt me, I can't let you know I've cried
I gotta make you think I'm happy everywhere I go
I gotta keep my hurt inside me, I can't let it show

I gotta drink up and be somebody, I have another round
I can't let my troubles find me, I gotta keep your memory down
Can't let you drive me crazy, can't let you win
I gotta drink up and be somebody again

Well, I can't spend my whole life grieving, I gotta find myself
I gotta put me back together, I gotta find me someone else
I don't make you think I'm happy everywhere I go
I gotta keep my hurt inside me, I can't let it show
I gotta drink up and be somebody
