Sometimes a Man Takes a Drink
Verse 1
Last night he fell down
But he got right back up
Had one too many I guess
Tomorrow he won't remember
Tonight he just wants to forget
The pressure he's under
The hell he's been in
The knife twisted up in his gut
When this is all over
He's gonna get sober
Tonight he's just down on his luck

Sometimes a man takes a drink
So he can just throw his head back and laugh
At the things he can't change
Like the bills he can't pay
And all of those ghosts from the past
It's the crutch he leans on
When things have gone wrong
Life didn't turn out like he planned
Sometimes a man takes a drink
Oh but sometimes a drink takes the man

Verse 2
Not that long ago
He could take it or leave it
Now he wonders when it all changed
When did he stop being happy go lucky
And become a prisoner in chains
Trapped behind bars no longer in charge
Where did the good times all go
He knows it got him cause he's on the bottom
Real close to out of control

Repeat Chorus
