I Gotta Get Drunk
Willie Nelson, adpt.: The Little Willies


Well, I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it,
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do.
I start to spend my money, callin' everybody honey,
And wind up singin' the blues.
I've spent my whole paycheck on some old wreck,
And brother, I can name you a few.
Well, I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it,
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do.

I gotta get drunk, I can't stay sober,
There's a lot of good people in town,
Who'd like to hear me holler, see me spend my dollars,
And I wouldn't think of lettin' 'em down.
There's a lot of doctors that tell me,
That I'd better start to slowin' it down.
But there's more old drunks than there are old doctors,
So I guess we'd better have another round.

There's a lot of doctors that ell me,
That I'd better start to slowin' it down.
But there's more old drunks than there are old doctors,
So I guess we'd better have another round.
