Drinkin' Thing  Gary Stewart

Drinkin' Thing by Gary Stewart
Transcribed by Jody Purswell
Intro: F F F Bb C
(For the intro: play all barre chords, it makes it easier...
For the F's, hit a strong bass note and then strum; on the last one hit the bass
note and strum twice and switch directly into a Bb and strum once. Hit the
Bb once and slide up to a C then pause and start the verses.)
N.C. F Bb C C B Bb
Every day I tell myself it's temporary
[Bb]That it's only 'cause she's [F]young
That makes her [Bb]want another [C]man
Even [F]though she makes me [Bb]feel unece[C]ssary[C] [B] [Bb]
I've [Bb]found a way to [C]help me under[F]stand
N.C. Bb
I've got this drinking thing
To keep from [F]thinkin things
'Bout where you [Bb]been,
who you [C]been with
What you've [F]done
[F]And it's [F7]a l[Bb]onely thing
But it's the [F]only thing
To keep a [Bb]foolish man in [C]love hanging [F]on
N.C. F Bb C C B Bb
If I wait up at home I'll only ask her questions
[Bb]She'd probably tell the [F]truth,
[Bb]So I don't even [C]ask
So I [F]sit here on this [Bb]barstool feeling [C]helpless[C] [B] [Bb]
And I [Bb]wonder just how [C]long a man can [F]last
Repeat Chorus twice
