Why Am I Drinking
By Merle Haggard
C                                G7               C
Hey why am I drinking there's no really reason to quit
                       G7                      C
And why am I thinking  God knows I'm trying to forget
    F                                             C
And why does that woman stay on my mind night and day
                      G7                    C
And why am I drinking why am I hurting this way
   F                          C
Is love just another word for memory
    F                             C
And is love just another word for pain
    F                               C
The question is  is love really the answer
                 G7              D7
And if so why is love so much to blame
   F                         C
If love is what we're really after
     F                C
Then why am I running away
And why am I drinking
G7                    C
Why am I hurting this way
Repeat #3
Yes honey why am I drinking
G7                    C
Why am I hurting this way
