Day Drinker
Recorded by Johnny Duncan
Written by Sonny Curtis

C G7
Day drinker habitual no-count drunk
And bum all day long
Em F G7 F
Day drinker I ain't had one sober thought
G7 C
Since you been gone

I find the livin' on the byway
F C G7
Trying to make a dollar and a dime
I beg and spend my salary
On a ninety cent room at some hotel
G7 F C G7 C
A twenty cent jug of bootleg sneaky beatin' wine

Repeat #1

My life's a mere existence
F C G7
A daily search for wine
But if I had resistance
I'd find myself a good woman to love
G7 F C G7 C
Forget about you and bootleg sneaky beatin' wine
