Reasons To Quit

This song is by Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson and appears on the album Pancho & Lefty (1982) and on the compilation album Yesterdays Wine (1981-88) (2002) by Merle Haggard.

Reasons to quit, the smoke and booze don't do me like before
And I'm hardly ever sober and my ole friends don't come 'round much anymore
Reasons to quit, the low is always lower than the high
And the reasons to quit don't outnumber all the reasons why

So we keep smokin' and we keep drinkin'
Havin' fun and never thinkin'
Laughin' at the price tag the we paid
And we keep roarin' down the fast lane
Like it's two young men feelin' no pain
And the reasons for quittin's are gettin' bigger each day

Reasons to quit, I can't afford the habit all the time
I need to be sober, I need to write some new songs that will rhyme
Reasons to quit, they have no rival reason when your high
And the reasons to quit don't outnumber all the reasons why

So we keep smokin' and we keep drinkin'
Havin' fun and never thinkin'
And laughin' at the price tag that we paid
And we keep roarin' down the fast lane
Like two young men feelin' no pain
And the reasons for quittin's gettin' bigger each day
And the reason for quittin's gettin' bigger each day
