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.
