There's a Tear in My Beer Lyrics

by Hank Williams

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you dear
You are on my lonely mind

Into these last nine beers
I have shed a million tears
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin'
Until I'm petrified
And then maybe these tears
Will leave my eyes

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm crying' for you dear
You were on my lonely mind

Last night I walked the floor
And the night before
You were on my lonely mind
It seems my life is through
And I'm so doggone blue
You were on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin'
'Till I can't move a toe
And then maybe my heart
Won't hurt me so

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you dear
You were on my lonely mind

Lord, I've tried and I've tried
But my tears, I can't hide
You are on my lonely mind
All these blues that I've found
Have really got me down
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin'
'Till I can't even think
'Cause in the last week
I ain't slept a wink

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm crying for you dear
You were on my lonely mind
