Charlie Daniels Band, The - Drinkin' My Baby Goodbye Lyrics

Sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a durn fool
That's what I'm a-doin' today
Sitting' her drinkin' tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away
Well now I couldn't make her stay, well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try.
Pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye.

Everytime we disagreed
She was always askin' me
Are you a man or a mouse?
Now that she's gone
She probably thinks I'm home
Just a mopin' around the house
She probably thinks that she's the one thing
I just couldn't get along without
Well wouldn't it surprise her I got a sympathizer
As long as these bottles hold out

Sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a durn fool
That's what I'm a-doin' today.
Sitting' her drinkin' tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away.
Well now I couldn't make her stay, well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try.
Pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye.

Every time I try to sit down and talk to her
It always ends up in a fuss.
I tried to reason with her right up to the time
She got on that Greyhound bus.
It would be better if I could forget her
'Cause she sure forgot about me.
And if takes all night I'm gonna' do it right
I'm gonna' sit here till I can't see.

Sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a durn fool
That's what I'm a-doin' today
Sitting' her drinkin' tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away
Well now I couldn't make her stay well doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try
Pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye

    Sat across a table from this wonderful man twice! It was on his bus in Marietta, Ga. He is an amazing man, and one of my favorite musicians. He's so genuine and down to earth. I asked him if he would sign a picture for my momma and daddy. He asked their names, and told me to thank them for being fans. Love you Charlie!

  62. Rick Baldwin

    When I was in Iraq in 2009 the Charlie Daniels Band came and he opened his show with this song, he performed for an hour and a half and stayed for a extra 3 hours to sign autographs and pose for pictures for every soldier that wanted one. He is a true American.
