Alan Jackson – You’re Not Drinking Enough lyrics

(Kortchmar)

I can see that you havn’t recovered

From the girl who let you down

You would sell what is left of your soul

For another go ’round.

You keep telling yourself she means nothing

Maybe you should call her bluff

But if you don’t really mean it

You must not be drinking enough.

Well, the perfume she wore

You can buy down at the five and dime

But on some other woman

It don’t smell the same in your mind.

You keep telling yourself you can take it

You tell yourself that you’re tough

But if you still want to hold her

You must not be drinking enough.

You’re not drinking enough,

To wash away old memories

And there ain’t enough whiskey in Texas

To keep you from beggin’, please, please, please.

She passed on your passion, stepped on your pride

It turns out you ain’t quite so tough

‘Cause you still want to hold her

You must not be drinking enough.

You heard this grown man cry

You ask yourself why

‘Cause you still want to hold her

You must not be drinking enough.

Ay – yi – yi – yi

Ask yourself why

You still wanna hold her

You must no be drinkin’ enough…
