Allman Brothers Band – Drunken Hearted Boy Lyrics

by The Allman Brothers Band

from The Fillmore Concerts

Well, yes, 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 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.

But that’s alright.

Baby, bring me another half-a-pint,

I’m trying to drown these blues, yes I am.

People if you had my trouble,

Baby, I know you’d be drinkin too.

Alright.

Baby, bring me some Old Grandad’s 100 proof.

Don’t play like that man, you’ll make me thirsty.

Oh, Lord.

Baby, if I keep on drinkin, I know I can’t last too long.

Woman, if I keep on drinkin, people ya know I can’t last too long.

That’s alright, cause when I’m dead and buried,

Please think about me when you hear this song.
