What Am I Gonna Do

Merle Haggard

I can make it for a day or two without you
And maybe I can make it through the night
I can smoke I can drink and probably be alright until morning
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life


I’ve got things that I can do I’ve got places I can go to this evening
I’ve got whiskey I can drink that’ll help me not to think about you leaving
Yes I can smoke and I can drink probably be alright till morning

I’ve got things that I can do I’ve got places I can go to this evening
I’ve got whiskey I can drink that’ll help me not to think about you leaving
Yes I can smoke and I can drink probably be alright till morning

But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life
I’ve got things that I can do…
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life
