Mickey Gilley The Power of Positive Drinkin' lyrics

Only come here once a day at hurtin' time

Payday, Charley knows I'm good for every dime

And I ease up on the barstool where I ease my pain

I'm just strong enough to face that lonely night again

 

Oh, the power

The powers of drinking

And it's fooling all of my native thinking

And it hurts so good

I never notice the sinking

Thanks a lot to positive drinking

 

Well, Charley always let me take a bottle home

After all, a man he can't fake it when he's all alone

And when the whiskey's talking

I can't hear your memory

Cause a little drinking drowns out a lot of you and me

 

Oh, the power

The powers of drinking

And it's fooling all of my native thinking

And it hurts so good

I never notice the sinking

Thanks a lot to positive drinking

 

Thanks a lot to positive drinking
