Uncle Tupelo - Before I Break

On liquor I spend my last dime

Sunday morning, 8am
Cursing myself again
Drinking like this one might be my last

Memories of making jokes
Too much beer and talk-show hosts
One of them that's fading fast

Here's to waking up at night
Drunk and undressed by the side of the road
You're still thinking

That you can't go on like this
Before I break down
You keep saying thanks so much, I can't live
Thanks so much, I've had enough

Well, it'd do me just fine to make it through the night
On liquor I spend my last dime

A worried man drinks a healthy drink
But he drinks nine or ten until he's done
Then he'll tell you his life story
But he won't stop until he's told you and everyone

Here's to waking up at night
Drunk and undressed by the side of the road
You're still thinking

That you can't go on like this
Before I break down
You keep saying thanks so much, I can't live
Thanks so much, I've had enough

Well, it'd do me just fine to make it through the night
On liquor I spend my last dime

Memories of making jokes
Too much beer and talk-show hosts
One of them that's fading fast

Here's to waking up at night
Drunk and undresssed by the side of the road
You're still thinking

That you can't go on like this
Before I break down
You keep saying thanks so much, I can't live
