The Drunk...

I found it....

Why do I drink, I do not know
I guess I'm just a poor lost soul.
I had everything money could buy,
But acted like a fool when they passed the Rye.

I drink so fast to ease the pain
of life, love and all lost fame.
The first drink always burns so bad,
The morning after I feel so sad.

I swore to quit, like times before,
by noon I shake and walk the floor.
I drank so much I ruined my life,
I lost my job, my pride, my wife.

I beg you people throughout this land
leave it alone while you still can.
As for me my life is lost,
for a drink I must have at any cost....

    I'd share anything.
