by the allman brothers band
from the fillmore concerts
well, yes, people i am a poor, drunken hearted boy.
well, yeah, people i am a poor, drunken hearted boy.
i have a whole ocean of trouble,
and just a little, half pint of joy.
i drink because i’m worried, i don’t drink because i’m dry.
i know if i keep on drinkin, i’m liable to drink away my life.
but that’s alright.
baby, bring me another half-a-pint,
i’m trying to drown these blues, yes i am.
people if you had my trouble,
baby, i know you’d be drinkin too.
baby, bring me some old grandad’s 100 proof.
don’t play like that man, you’ll make me thirsty.
baby, if i keep on drinkin, i know i can’t last too long.
woman, if i keep on drinkin, people ya know i can’t last too long.
that’s alright, cause when i’m dead and buried,
please think about me when you hear this song.
