    "Why Henry Drinks" Lyrics

    Drive-by Truckers

    Them stories that you tell me are so hard to swallow
    You said, "Go to hell", but I know you'd just follow
    The future's closing in quicker than you think

    And hanging with you I know why Henry drinks

    Those obnoxious drunks downstairs are fighting and cussing
    And twelve years of you and me don't add up to nothing
    You say what's on your mind, tell it to your shrink

    So he can know like me why Henry drinks

    Just a few more hours till the sun comes back around
    To tear each other down and drink another round
    Lost it on the way now I'm hating what we found
    Mendacity and grudge-fucks and pieces out of town

    I drink half a case of beer for a get home from work
    Daddy needs his medicine to keep his hands off mama's throat
    Baby, push a little harder 'cause you got me on the brink

    Of spilling more than guts about why Henry drinks
    Telling you so much about why Henry drinks
