I'm Drinking Again (Ry Cooder)

Yes, it's me and I'm drinking again Tell everybody I'm drinking again Doctor said it'd kill me But he didn't say when Have mercy, I'm drinking again Yes, it's me and I'm drinking again I'd like to dry out but I doubt if I can My baby said she'd quit me but she didn't say when 'Cause I'm drinking again Working two jobs, tryin' to get straight Don't need the money, just want to lose weight Gonna get you all the things that you lack Diamond ring and a red Cadillac Came home drunk and pushed you around Don't you quit me baby, don't you put me down I'll never do it again I'll never do it again I'll never do it again I promise this time I came home last night about half past four Whole neighborhood was rocking out on my floor And my baby was working up under the sheet With a teenage boy that lives down the street I grabbed a bottle, he grabbed a gun I heard somebody holler: "Shoot him 'fore he runs" And that's the reason why I'm drinking again Tell everybody I'm drinking again You can't lick 'em and you just can't win Yes, it's me and I'm drinking again Ain't it enough to start you drinking again We got to live in a world full of sin Thank you Jesus for what you have done I'm sick and tired tryin' to be number one Change my suit, change my shirt Change what I dig and get out of the dirt I'll never do it again I'll never do it again I'm going to get back in my gin I'm drinking again
