I'm just asking you to listen, not to understand
These confessions of a broken man
I don't know where my story starts..or i'd go back to then
All i know is it's a sad, sad tale and so far it has no end.
I know i drank too much...tho i didn't there at first
O.k., i'd have a beer or two and it just seemed to go from bad to worse.
Then one day i noticed my money was going faster than it was coming in
And i got scared and i started gambling...and i'm the kind that just never seems to win.
I had a woman...guess every man does;
And every man thinks his is the best...mine was.
Stuck by me through thick and thin til it just got too thin i guess
She walked in one day and said she had to leave me
I could have sworn i saw a big tear in her eye
I heard the other day that she'd gotten married again
I hope he treats her better than i.
Well, if you're getting the idea that i'm some kind of bum
You're catching on pretty fast,
And if you're wondering if i've turned into a wino,
Well, these are my fingerprints on the glass.
I've been sitting here in this bar since they opened up this
