Misery and gin Merle Haggard
[D]Memories and drinks don't mix too well.
And jukebox records don't play those wedding [G]bells.
[C]Starin' at the world through the bottom of a glass,
All I see is a man who's fading [D]fast.[D7]
[D]Tonight I need that woman again.
What I'd give for my baby to just walk [G]in.
[C]Sit down beside me and say it's alright.
Take me home and make sweet love to me [D]tonight.[D7]
[G]But here I am a[G7]gain, mixin' [C]misery and gin.
Sittin' with [D]all my friends and [D7]talkin' to my[G]self.
C C(barre) B C
I look like I'm havin' a good time but any fool can tell,
That this [G]Honkytonk Heaven really makes ya' [D]fee[D7]l like [G]hell.[D7]
[D]I light a lonely womans cigarette,
We both start talkin' 'bout what we want to [G]forget.
[C]Her life story and mine are the same.
We both lost someone and only have ourselves to [D]blame.[D7]
