Heaven Was a Drink of Wine  Merle Haggard

Heaven Was A Drink Of Wine
That sychoed out psychologist, asked me [G] [C]
about drinking w[G]ays,
C Everything that he ask me all related back
unto my childhood d[G]ays.
B[C]ut if the truth was known, I never took to
drinking long, long as she was
mi[G]ne.
B[G]ut when she left me, I went to h[D]ell, and
heaven was a drink of w[G]ine.
G C That good doctor said "look at all those ink
spots and tell me what you s[G]ee".
C Could I help it, if they all looked like,
big ol' broken hearts to [G]me.
All my friends and kin will tell you, old [C]
Hag ainít the drinkíin k[G]ind.
But when she left me, I went to hell, and [G] [D]
heaven was a drink of w[G]ine.
Get back, get back, get on back and leave me [C]
a[G]lone.
C Canít you see that you canít help a man this
far g[D]one. -----(pause)
Hey good doctor, I got something you canít [G] [C]
f[G]ind, in my mind.
When she left me, I went to hell, and heaven [G] [D]
was a drink of w[G]ine.
G D When she left me, I went to hell, and heaven
was a drink of w[G]ine.
