LIQUOR, BEER, AND WINE
Reverend Horton Heat

The doctor says I'm livin'
On precious borrowed time,
With all the time I'm givin',
To liquor, beer, and wine.
The X-rays of my liver,
Look like molded old Swiss cheese,
My heart pumps blood and alcohol,
Through hardened arteries.

Everybody knows me,
Down at the local bar,
I drink until I can't see,
And I wonder where you are.
I guess I let my health go,
Since you quit bein' mine,
But there was nothing to replace you,
Except liquor, beer, and wine.

(Chorus)
Liquor, beer and wine,
Is the flashing sign I see,
Every single morning I get up,
It's buzzing down at me.
I look up to the heavens,
For a ray of hope to shine,
And there it is in neon,
Liquor, beer, and wine.

Ever since you've left me,
I've lived out of my car,
Parked between the liquor store,
And Uncle Bubba's bar.
Booze helps ease the heartache,
But you're constantly in mind,
As constant as that buzzing noise,
Of Uncle Bubba's sign.

(Chorus)
