Merle Haggard – I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink Lyrics

Could be holding you tonight
Could quit doing wrong, start doin’ right
You don’t care about what I think
I think I’ll just stay here and drink

Hey, puttin’ you down, don’t square no deal
Least you know the way I feel
Take all the money in the bank
I think I’ll just stay here and drink

Listen close and you can hear
That loud jukebox playin’ in my ear
Ain’t no woman gonna change the way I think
I think I’ll just stay here and drink

Hurtin’ me now, don’t mean a thing
Since lovin’ you, don’t feel no pain
My mind ain’t nothin’ but a total blank
I think I’ll just stay here and drink, yeah
