I Drink Alone

Words & Music:

George Thorogood & The Destroyers



I drink alone, yeah, with nobody else.




I drink alone, yeah with nobody else.

C7                                 D7                  E7

Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself.


Now, every morning just before breakfast, I don't want no coffee or tea.

Just me and my good Buddy Wiser, that's all I ever need.




Yeah, the other night I lay sleepin' and I woke from a terrible dream.

So I called up my pal Jack Daniels and his partner Jimmy Beam.




Yeah, the other day I got invited to a party, but I stayed home instead.

Just me and my pal Johnny Walker and his brothers, Black and Red.




Yeah, my whole family done give up on me & it makes me feel oh, so bad.

The only one who'll hang out with me is my dear Old Granddad.


CHORUS:  [2x]
