Verse 1 Lyrics
I've been drinkin' since a half past noon
And God knows that I've tried
The sun's gone down, the Devil's out
And I'm not hard to find
I'm placed at this here altar
Where many men have died
At the bottom of this empty glass
Where you I just might find

Chorus 1 Lyrics
So wake me in the morning
And send me on my way
Pick me up and dust me off
And tell me it's okay
I'm sorry for all the things that I
Have done or might have said
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my head
Verse 2 (0:58 - 1:10)
Guitar 2 Plays Riff 3 1x
Verse 2 Lyrics
I've been sober now for six long months
And god knows that I've tried (yeah, right!)
But every time that I pass a pub
I break right down and cry
So help me I now wish that I
Had never gotten paid
For here I am, I'm drunk again
And I've spent my life away
Chorus 2 (1:10 - 1:33)
Guitar 2 Plays Riff 4 (Modified) 1x

The sun's gone down, the Devil's out
And I'm not hard to find
I'm placed at this here altar
Where many men have died
At the bottom of this empty glass
Where you I just might find
So wake me in the morning
And send me on my way
Pick me up and dust me off
And tell me it's okay
I'm sorry for all the things that I
Have done or might have said
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my head
I've been sober now for six long months
And god knows that I've tried (yeah, right!)
But every time that I pass a pub
I break right down and cry
So help me I now wish that I
Had never gotten paid
For here I am, I'm drunk again
And I've spent my life away
So wake me in the morning
And send me on my way
Pick me up and dust me off
And tell me it's okay
I'm sorry for all the things that I
Have done or might have said
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my head
So wake me in the morning
And send me on my way
Pick me up and dust me off
And tell me it's okay
I'm sorry for all the things that I
Have done or might have said
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my head
If I fall down just pick me up again
If I fall down just pick me up again
If I fall down just pick me up again
If I fall down just pick me up again
So wake me in the morning
And send me on my way
Pick me up and dust me off
And tell me it's okay
I'm sorry for all the things that I
Have done or might have said
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my head
So wake me in the morning
And send me on my way
Pick me up and dust me off
And tell me it's okay
I'm sorry for all the things that I
Have done or might have said
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my head
Twas all in good fun
The drink went to my...
