lyrics

Drunkest Man in Town
(©K. Gordon)

Quiet streets, most folks are asleep
In the tavern there’s laughter
In the company you keep
They’re buying another round
For the drunkest man in town

You’ve come so far, on a stool in a bar
And you stuck with it til the devil
Paid you with a bleeding star
He’s grinning as he drowns
The drunkest man in town

Come the dawn, something’s missing
Morning flies without a friend
Not long ago you were laughing like
The night would have no end

To confess you’ll be the first
You’re happiest at your worst
Miles from where grace abounds
The drunkest man in town

Whiskey was fine; now you’re draining the wine
One hand on the bottle, still clinging to the vine
Leading you straight to the ground
The drunkest man in town

Someone pull the curtain down
On the drunkest man in town
