I Lie When I Drink – Dale Watson

Oh I lie when I drink, and I drink a lot,
Don’t believe me when I’ve had a few.
Oh I lie when I drink, and I drink a lot,
I only drink when I’m missin’ you.

I walk in the bartender rolls his eyes.
At the same time the waitress, she just smiles.
He’s heard the truth about you
She’s heard it too but slightly skewed
I had lied I broke your heart in two.

Oh I lie when I drink, and I drink a lot,
Don’t believe me when I’ve had a few.
Oh I lie when I drink, and I drink a lot,
I only drink when I’m missin’ you.

At closin’ time I’m the last one out the door.
I tip that waitress, that bartender I ignore.
I yell “I’m never comin’ back!” That always makes them laugh.
They know me, I won’t keep my word.

Cause’ I lie when I drink, and I drink a lot,
Don’t belive me when I’ve had a few.
Oh I lie when I drink, and I drink a lot,
I only drink when I’m missin’ you.
I only drink when I’m missin’ you.
