NASTY ALCOHOLIC

Alcohol’s been our selection
Since the big disconnection came about.
Rye’s for reason,
N’ jack’s for all seasons
In this tumbleweed-connection shout.
Elixir’s help ‘em function,
But you mights as well just block the sun-
You’re a nasty alcoholic in a town full of nice ones.
A nasty alcoholic in a town full of nice ones.
——
You’re on the wagon, without bragging’,
For your kids and for you wife,
‘Cuz from happy bender
To dark soul-sender,
Another good friend’s lost his life.
So your anger’s channeled
‘Cuz you’re sick to death of setting sons.
You’re a nasty alcoholic in a town full of nice ones
A nasty alcoholic in a town full of nice ones.
——
You hate the way good people wither,
Stranded in the way things used to be.
N’ hanging there much longer would’ve claimed you,
So you made your way to free.
You wanna be someone they turn to,
Not some cartoon to your kids.
Someone who’ll stare down all those demons
You’ve tried so hard to rid.
——
Sun comes up and shouts its witness
To the business that’s at hand
Proud n’ scenic’s
Long gone anemic;
To have lived it is to understand.
N’ you’re torn between a move away
Or stay, and reckon to-be-dones….
You’re a nasty alcoholic in a town full of nice ones
A nasty alcoholic in a town full of nice ones.
