Lyrics



One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

Well, my baby, she gone, gone tonight

I ain't seen the girl since night before last

I wanna get drunk, get off of my mind


One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer


And I sit there

Get stoned

Mellow

Stoned, feelin' good

Real mellow

Dreamin'

After a while, I looked down the bar

At the bartender

I said, "Hey, what do you want?"


One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

Well, my baby, she gone, gone tonight

I ain't seen the baby since night before last

I wanna get drunk, get off of my mind


One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer


Ah-ha, yeah, uh-m

I'm gonna sit there, I was tastin'

Sippin', gettin' rolling

And gettin' a little dizzy

Couldn't hardly see

The bartender

Couldn't hardly sip

On the bar stool

I was rockin' and I was dizzy

And after a while, I looked on the wall

At the old clock

By that time eleven o'clock

Gettin' a little late

And I looked down the bar

At the bartender

I said, "Hey, what do you want?"


One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

Well, my baby, she gone, gone tonight

I ain't seen my baby since night before last

I wanna get drunk, get off of my mind


One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer


Ah-ha, yeah, yes, sir

And I sit there

At the bar

Uh-m, drinkin'

And after a while, I looked down the bar

At the bartender

Then after I looked down the bar, I looked on the wall

At the old clock

By that time, when the last call for alcohol

Was a quarter to two

Then I looked down the bar

At the bartender

I said, "Hey, what do you want?"


One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer
