I'm Drinkin' Once Again (Lloyd Snow)

Yes, I'm drinkin' once again,
I'm runnin' 'round with my old friends,
Heartache, pain and misery,
I can always count on them;
And the blues still come around,
I know they'll never let me down,
They're old friends that I can count on,
And there's one thing that I found.

The blues won't ever leave me
All alone the way you did,
Heartache seems to be here
Every moment that I live;
And misery keeps me company
And the whiskey's good for pain,
And old friends are forever
That's why I'm drinkin' once again.

I guess you thought I'd be alone
Since you walked out and done me wrong,
I don't mean to sound unfeelin'
I hardly noticed you were gone;
'Cause I been here with my old friends,
The day you left they moved back in,
So how could I be lonely
Now that I'm drinkin' once again?

The blues won't ever leave me
All alone the way you did,
Heartache seems to be here
Every moment that I live;
And misery keeps me company
And the whiskey's good for pain,
And old friends are forever
That's why I'm drinkin' once again.
