lyrics

I went to looking for a place to sleep
A bed to share, some warm company
Seventeen dollars but i needed just one more
Seventeen dollars but i had to sleep alone

I heard love left for another town
So i went out to try to track her down
Seventeen days but i needed just one more
Seventeen days still i didn’t have the time

I tried my best then to figure her out
Talked to all the sad men sitting at the bar
Seventeen fools and we needed just one smart
Seventeen fools and we figure this shit out

I went on a walk to clear my head
I passed out on the street instead
Seventeen drinks and I needed just one more
Seventeen drinks and I needed just one more
Seventeen drinks and I need just one more
Seventeen drinks and I need just one more
