I've been thinking
that I should quit drinking,
That I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around;
When the morning comes around,
When the morning comes around,
me true love,
I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around.

When I was just thirteen
my friend he gave a gift to me,
He had stolen from his father
a bottle of whiskey;
We passed that bottle 'round,
as sweet as honey it went down,
Next morning did I suffer
when the light shone down on me!

I've been thinking
that I should quit drinking,
That I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around;
When the morning comes around,
When the morning comes around,
me true love, I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around.

It was on my wedding day,
before I went to church to pray,
I loaded down on whiskey
then went to say 'I do';
As she walked down the aisle,
on my face I felt a smile,
But nobody was smiling
when I got sick in a pew.

I've been thinking
that I should quit drinking,
That I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around;
When the morning comes around,
When the morning comes around,
me true love, I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around.

After a couple of days,
my wife she saw my drinking ways,
She packed her bags and on the bed
a letter left for me;
When I staggered home,
I cursed her as I read the note,
At least I had some whiskey though
to keep me company.

I've been thinking
that I should quit drinking,
That I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around;
When the morning comes around,
When the morning comes around,
me true love, I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around.

So take a word from me,
if you ever fall in love with whiskey,
Be prepared to spend a lot
of days and nights alone;
But if you never mind,
then you and whiskey have a good time,
And I'll buy you a drink
when the devil calls you home.

I've been thinking
that I should quit drinking,
That I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around;
When the morning comes around,
When the morning comes around,
me true love, I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around.

I've been thinking
that I should quit drinking,
That I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around;
When the morning comes around,
When the morning comes around,
me true love, I should quit drinking
when the morning comes around.
