  • [Chorus]
    Sitting on a bar stool
    Acting like a dern fool
    That's what I'm a doin' today
    I'm sittin' here drinkin'
    Tryin' to keep a thinking I'm crusin' my troubles away
    Well now I couldn't make her stay
    Well dog gone her anyway
    She can't say that I didn't try-hi-hi
    Poor me another one I'm finished with the other one
    I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye

    Every time we disagree she was always asking me
    Are you a man or a mouse?
    Now that she's gone she probably thinks that I'm home just a moping around the house
    She probably thinks that she's the one thing I just couldn't get along without
    Well wouldn't this surprise her
    I gotta sympathize her as long as these bottles hold out

    Well I'm a
    [Chorus]

    Every time I tried to sit down and talk with her it always ended up in a fuss
    I tried to reason with her right up till the time that she got on that Grayhound bus
    It'd be better if I just forget if 'cause she sure forgot about me
    And if it takes all night I'm gonna do it right
    I'm gonna sit here till I can't see

    Well I'm a
    [Chorus]

    Well I'm a
    [Chorus]

    I said to pour me another one I'm finished with the other one.
    I'm drinking my baby goodbye
    I said to pour me another one I'm finished with the other one.
    I'm drinking my baby goodbye
