This old world ain’t been kind to me
And no matter how I try I can’t seem to change my stars
And though they shine bright they only bring me misery
Misery without company

I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow
I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow
But for now the only thing keepin’ my chin up is this bottle

This life of mine is out to do me in
It lies in wait up ahead at every turn
If I started thinkin’ that I could take it on and win
It would only prove that I’ll never learn

I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow
I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow
But for now the only thing keepin’ my chin up is this bottle

The weight of finding out there is no cure
For every moment up til now I lived before
I will carry with me to a lonely grave
Misery without company
Misery without company

I’m fixing to dry out tomorrow
I’m fixing to dry out tomorrow
I’m fixing to dry out tomorrow
But for now the only thing keepin’ my chin up is this bottle
