Song Description

His girlfriend wants all the attention, but he also needs to see his male friends, which she doesn't agree he can do. So he drinks...

Story Behind the Song

Like my song "Have Another Drink", this is in the same genre as Sinatra's "One for My Baby" ... even down to the echoey, distant-sounding piano.

Lyrics

Drinking alone, my baby has gone,
She said she's had enough
Of my wandering eyes, and seeing the guys -
She wants to be the only one!

Drinking alone, and why do I feel
There's no other way to go?
There is hope in a glass that love can surpass,
But love has given me such a blow.

I must as well get drunk again,
The whisky is my friend.
They tell me to stop - I need every drop.
The boozing may well be my end.

Drinking alone, give me a break,
'Cos I'm just a soul that's down.
If the loneliness stays, at least there's a way
Of trying to get it to drown.

I never even shave no more,
Or even wash my clothes.
If I try to stop, I still need that drop
As all of this solitude grows.

Drinking alone and staying at home
Or seeing the guys in a bar -
Maybe it's not the way, but what can I say?
That's just the way that things are, and they'll stay,
That's just the way that things are. Cheers!
