Lyrics

Got the drunkard's blues

It was down at Big Kiss' barroom on the corner beyond the square
Everybody drinkin' liquor, the regular crowd was there
I strolled out on the sidewalk began walkin' around
I looked every place I thought she'd be, but my baby couldn't be found

So I strolled back to the barroom to get another drink of gin
The first thing I knew I was reeling, rocking and drunk again

Got the drunkard's blues

Sixteen coal black horses all hitched up in a line
In that pretty buggy she's ridin' goodbye ol' gal of mine

Got the drunkard's blues
