Lyrics

Drinking in the Graveyard

She’d put that
Old record on
And sing along
But now she’s gone
And it’s ruined that song

I’m gonna go drinking
in the graveyard tonight
As the street light
Weeps her weak light
The bone orchard’s heavy
All the fruit is ripe
So I’m gonna go drinking
In the graveyard tonight

I drive round this town
Past the places we lived
Got Patsy on the oldies station
Begging me to forgive

I’m gonna go drinking
in the graveyard tonight
As the street light
Weeps her weak light
The bone orchard’s heavy
All the fruit is ripe
So I’m gonna go drinking
In the graveyard tonight

She’s singing crazy
And so were you
And now you’ve gone
And proved to yourself
There’s only so much
One man’s love can do

I don't want to hear
That old song no more
Ever since
You walked out my door

I’m gonna go drinking
in the graveyard tonight
As the street light
Weeps her weak light
The bone orchard’s heavy
All the fruit is ripe
So I’m gonna go drinking
In the graveyard tonight
