I have not heard this Elvin Bishop tune, but wouldn't be surprised if it's very close to Robert Johnson's "Drunken Hearted Man", the lyrics to which can be found at http://xroads.virginia.edu/~MUSIC/BLUES/dhm.html
or search The Robert Johnson Notebooks.

Hope that this is of assistance.

Regards,

Steve Latimer

Can't help with posting the lyrics, but you can find the track on the Allman Brothers : "Dreams" album with Elvin Bishop on guitar and vocals.

Transcribed from the recording on Spotify:


DRUNKEN HEARTED BOY
By Elvin Bishop
As sung by the Allman Brothers Band on "The Fillmore Concerts" (1993)

Well, yeah, 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.
Baby, bring me another half a pint. I'm tryin to drown these blues. Yes, I am.
People, if you had my troubles, baby, I know you would be drinkin' too.

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 all right, 'cause when I'm dead and buried, please think about me when you hear this song.
