I'll Have Another Drink Of Whiskey 'Cause Death Is Not So Far Away

Living life in the city can get so lonely
So I moved to the country got married and settled down
In my city life my glass was always half empty
Now I'm just trying to keep that glass around

I'll have another drink of whiskey
‘Cause death is not so far away
Just like ol' Shane MacGowan
I'll sing and drink my cares away

Just like an ol' cemetery & western love song
She put a stake right through my heart then walked away
But I survived I may have tripped and stumbled
I medicated myself with alcohol along the way

So I no longer try to keep up with the Joneses
And every day above ground is a good day
I won't wait ‘til I'm dead to stop and smell the roses
‘Cause I'm living life here and now instead
