Misery and Gin
Performed by Merle Hagard

Verse 1:
Memories and drinks don't mix too well.
And jukebox records don't play those wedding bells.
Starin' at the world through the bottom of a glass,
                                D     D7
All I see is a man who's fading fast.

Verse 2:
Tonight I need that woman again.
What I'd give for my baby to just walk in.
Sit down beside me and say it's alright.
                                       D       D7
Take me home and make sweet love to me tonight.

G              G7           C
But here I am again, mixin' misery and gin.
             D                  D7           G
Sittin' with all my friends and talkin' to myself.
  C                      C(barre)          B        C
I look like I'm havin' a good time but any fool can tell,
          G                                 D  D7     G     D7
That this Honkytonk Heaven really makes ya' feel like hell.

Verse 3:
I light a lonely womans cigarette, 
We both start talkin' 'bout what we want to forget.
Her life story and mine are the same.
                                                D      D7
We both lost someone and only have ourselves to blame.
