Lyrics
Today the love of my life just became the wife of another man
I was there in the church left in the lurch, doin all I can
Until the hopelessness settled in
When I realized I'd never begin
To stand a bit of a chance to rekindle romance with her


That is how I got here so pour me a beer Mr bartender
I'll take a shot of that gin, until I begin to forget about her
If I keep drinkin I sure I'll arrive at a place where I can finally survive
Where all the pain and the hurt will finally become a blur

I'll have me another, double round
Until my emptiness settles down
And when I'm feeling no pain, then I won't need your lame sympathy
When I forget about me

Well as I live and I breathe, there's a girl that I need sitting next to me
She's a beauty no doubt, I just gotta find out if she's taken with me
If I keep drinkin I might get up the nerve to ask her if she's ever likely to serve
The cause of helping a schmuck stuck in a rut like me

I'll have me another, double round
Until my emptiness settles down
And when I'm feeling no pain, then I won't need your lame sympathy
When I forget about me
