"Drowning My Troubles" lyrics

Drowning My Troubles

Two eyes in a mirror
Staring back at me
Circles on the bar now
Where empty glasses used to be

But singles turn to doubles
And now I've doubled them
I've been a drowning my troubles
Till they've learned how to swim

When my baby let me down
The bottle picked me up
For the while I could drown her memory
But now I can't drink that much

I've been drinking
To keep from thinking
But her memory won't go dim
I've been a drowning my troubles
Till they've learned how to swim

Jukebox in the corner
Adds to my misery
The song that it keeps playing
Is the song she sang to me

Memories mixed with music
I've got heartaches to go with them
I keep a drowning my troubles
Till they've learned how to swim

When my baby let me down
The bottle picked me up
For the while I could drown her memory
But now I can't drink that much

I've been drinking
To keep from thinking
But her memory won't go dim
I've been a drowning my troubles
Till they've learned how to swim
