Drunken Hearted Boy

This song is by The Allman Brothers Band, features Elvin Bishop on lead vocals and appears on the live album At Fillmore East (1971) and on the compilation album Dreams (1989).

Well yes, people I am a poor, drunken hearted boy
Well yeah, people I am a poor, drunken hearted boy
I have a whole ocean of trouble
And just a little half a pint of joy

I drink because I'm worried, I don't drink because I'm dry
I know if I keep on drinkin', I'm liable to drink away my life
But that's alright

Baby, bring me another half a pint
I'm trying to drown these blues, yes I am
People if you had my trouble
Baby, I know you would be drinkin' too

Alright!

Spoken
Baby, bring me some old Grandad's 100 proof, woo!
Don't play like that man, you'll make me thirsty, woo!
Oh Lord!
One more time, woo!

Baby, if I keep on drinkin', I know I can't last too long
Woman, if I keep on drinkin', people you know I can't last too long
That's alright 'cause when I'm dead and buried
Please think about me when you hear this song
