Please just try to make it plain
Strange blood is pounding in my veins
Face-down on the street with a mouth of broken teeth
I shouldn’t have run mounting my retreat
Never fired a gun and never caused a scene
Make for the county line
Get there before daylight comes

Let me explain my bad idea again
I know your face, I know you’re not a friend
No shame anymore, death in the afternoon
Bloody trente-et-uns, I swear that I was true
A man without his hat laid out with the flu
The remedy he knows he traces to an Irish king
It’s four o’clock somewhere and
A bird can’t fly on one wing

Through the night with hospital patience
Like a saint with the hospital patience
Through the night with hospital patience

Let me explain my bad idea again
And stay with me until the very end
And take and take and take and take all ills away
