PASS ME ANOTHER WHISKEY

Listen to me Beth of a tale Iíll tell of drinking and sinking into debt Mary packed, she ainít coming back, my heart is black and dead Pass me another whisky, Beth Hand me another cigarette I might die in this tavern tonight Donít try to tell me anybody cares When the wood mill closed I got to drinking - Not thinking it would ever come to this And I prayed to Saint Paul: ďIíll change it all if you let me do it over againĒ Pass me another whisky, Beth Hand me another cigarette I might die in this tavern tonight Donít try to tell me anybody cares Now Beth, you knew I loved her through and through And I thought she too would know And if I got a little mean it was the devil in me -not me- that made her go Pass me another whisky, Beth Hand me another cigarette I might die in this tavern tonight Donít try to tell me anybody cares Oh, Beth, youíre so very sweet and very kind to me And youíre so very, very pretty But do me a favor - save your labor and just listen to me Listen to me Beth of a tale Iíll tell of drinking and sinking into debt _______________________ by Jeff Kelly (c) 2011 St. Brigid Publishing BMI
