I’m drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this mornin’
Drank the whiskey this mornin’ cos my baby she ain’t comin home
I’m drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this mornin’
Last night she went up to the bar
Said she met some big country star

She said he likes to make love when he’s smokin’
And he don’t walk around like he’s broken
And he sings just like Dwight Yoakam

My baby she left me she took all her things when she went
Left me standin’ out in the rain and didn’t look back
I’m drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this mornin’
She left me nothin’ but heartache and tears
She took every last one of my good years

She said he likes to make love when he’s smokin’
And he don’t walk around like he’s broken
And he sings just like Dwight Yoakam

I’m drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this mornin’
Drank the whiskey this mornin’ cos my baby she ain’t comin home
