Oh my boys I’m gonna drink this down
with a broken heart
Come on boys and help me drink my shame away
And my broken heart

‘Cause my fairest lovers gone
Where I do not know
So come on boys I’m gonna drink my pain away
And my broken heart

In my drink I ask her, "why’ve you left me
with a broken heart?
Come on, my love, just tell me truly
Why you broke my heart.”

She finally answers, “Man, you son of a gun
I didn’t just walk away, I had to run.
Because you wouldn't stop drinking it down
I had to break your heart."
