Misery & Gin
Words & Music: Steven Wells
Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2019

She says I drink too much as she’s smokin’ pot
Gives me a wink then she takes a shot
Well I guess you never really know what you’ve got, until it’s thru
As I gaze upon her ocean the rain begins to fall
She whispers to me “you barely missed last call”
Now I’m haunted by the moonlight and drunk on the blues

The river’s floodin’ the tides are risin’
And It’s time for me to sink or swim
I’m realizin’, I’m capsizin’
And I’m drownin’ in misery and gin

I’m the jack of spades she’s the queen of hearts
She gives me a nod as she deals the cards
Well, ain’t it funny how the love, gets shuffled in with pain
A good bottle and a woman I ain’t askin’ for much
But one drives me crazy and the other makes me numb
As I turn my head, close my eyes and slowly walk away

The river’s floodin’ the tides are risin’
And It’s time for me to sink or swim
I’m realizin’, I’m capsizin’
And I’m drownin’ in misery and gin

Love’s like tryin’ sell the devil to an angry nun
Down at the house of the rising sun
When you’re halfway to a smile, she’ll kick ya in the nuts

The river’s floodin’ the tides are risin’
And It’s time for me to sink or swim
I’m realizin’, I’m capsizin’
And I’m drownin’ in misery and gin
Yeah, I’m drownin’ in misery and gin
