Lyrics

V1
Since you left me, darlin', I got over being sad.
Now that I'm back on my own I'm not doing all that bad.
I picked up a couple of hobbies to help me occupy my time.
What else was I going to do to get you off my mind?

Refrain
Yeah, I took up heavy drinkin' and a little macramé.
Then I started smoking a couple packs a day.
Lately I've been cryin' when I hear a sad old song.
I take up heavy drinkin' when your memory comes along.

V2
I think I've finally found the secret to escape your memory.
I could probably write a self-help book for other guys like me.
If I just keep my mind distracted, then I'm OK for a while.
Until I smell her sweet perfume or I recall her smile.

Refrain
Then I take up heavy drinkin' and a little macramé.
Then I start smoking several joints every day.
Lately I've been cryin' when I hear a sad old song.
I take up heavy drinkin' when your memory comes along.
Yeah, I take up heavy drinkin' when your memory comes along.

Bridge
Model railroads take too much time.
Crossword puzzles drive me out of my mind.
So for now I guess I'll be just fine...

Refrain
If I take up heavy drinkin' and a little macramé.
Then I start smoking a bunch of crack cocaine.
Lately I've been cryin' when I hear a sad old song.
I take up heavy drinkin' when your memory comes along.
