On the evening news

Said things could be much worse, we still got our health

My paycheck in the mail

                 C                  G
I promised to my wife, and children

F                  C              G
I'd never touch another drink as long as I live

F                  C           G
But even then, it sounds so soothing

This will blow over in time

I'd never touch another drink as long as I live

But even then, it sounds so soothing

F                 C           G
To mix a gin and sink into oblivion

I promised to my wife and children

But at the meetings I felt so empty

This will all blow over in time
