A drunken ballad.

lyrics

We Were Drunks (c) Darryl John 2014


Intro: D – Dm – D – Dm – A7

Verse 1:
D G
Well we drove out of town,
D G
As drunk as could be.
D G
We rolled the car,
E A
Into an old gum tree.
D G
When the dust finally settled,
D G
We looked at the twisted metal.
D G
And thought to ourselves,
A
How lucky are we?
D A7
We were drunks!

Verse 2:
D G
We got drunk every night,
D G
And in the occasional fight.
D G
And our local hotel,
E A
Was bursting at the seams.
D G
We sang and we danced,
D G
We were looking for romance.
D G
Trying so hard to find,
A
The girl of our dreams,
D
We were drunks!

Interlude: D – Dm – D – Dm – D – Dm - A7


Verse 3:
D G
After beer and stout,
D G
We’d get the spirits out.
D G
If we ran out of Coke,
E A
We’d start necking it straight.
D G
And along came the dawn,
D G
Hung-over all morn.
D G
By lunch we’d realise,
A
Our life wasn’t great,
D A7
We were drunks!

Verse 4:
D G
But when tea came around,
D G
Filled with buoyant rebound.
D G
We’d shower and shave,
E A
Go out and do it again.
D G
At dawn’s early light,
D G
In a bad state of fright.
D G
We’d vow and declare,
A
That this was the end,
D
We were drunks!

Interlude: D – Dm – D – Dm – D – Dm – A7
D
We were drunks.
