Drinking Thing
Recorded by Gary Stewart
Written by Wayne Carson

C F G7
Everyday I tell myself it's temporary
F Dm
That it's only cause she's young
F G7
That makes her want another man
C F G7
Even though she makes me feel unnecessary
F G7 C
I've found a way to help me understand

C7 F
I've got this drinking thing
To keep from thinking things
Bout where you been who you been with
C C7 F
What you've done and it's a lonely thing
But it's the only thing
F G7 C
To keep a foolish man in love hanging on

F G7
If I wait up at home I'll only ask her questions
F Dm
She'd probably tell the truth
F G7
So I don't even ask
C F G7
So I sit here on this barstool feeling helpless
F G7 C
And I wonder just how long a man can last

Repeat #2
