Savoy Brown - Everybody Loves A Drinking Man Lyrics




Well my daddy never drank no whiskey
He never wet his liver with gin
My momma said she loved nobody else
But she really loved the drinking man

Respectable though my daddy was
Until he heard of mama's sin
He drank every drop of liquor in this place
And we never saw my daddy again

Because everybody loves a drinking man
Everybody loves a drinking man

Well my uncle was a real good talker
He'd talk the beak off a myna bird
Until someone dropped a glass of whiskey in his hand
He never said another word

Because everybody loves a drinking man
Everybody loves a drinking man

So understand that people will judge you
On your good and not your words
So if you're looking for a favor or two
You may likely die of thirst

Because everybody loves a drinking man
Everybody loves a drinking man
Everybody loves a drinking man
Everybody loves a drinking man
