I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink Lyrics

Merle Haggard

Could be holding you tonight
Could be doing wrong or start doing right
You don’t care about what I think
I think I’ll just stay here and drink

Hey, putting you down, don’t square no deal
Least you’ll know the way I feel
Take all the money in the bank
I think I’ll just stay here and drink

Listen close and you can hear
That loud jukebox playing in my ear
Ain’t no woman gon’ change the way I think
I think I’ll just stay here and drink

Hurtin’ me know don’t mean a thing
Since love ain’t here, don’t feel no pain
My mind ain’t nothing but a total blank
I think I’ll just stay here and drink
