Lyrics

Well I've been in some bars where they serve them in big silver goblets, and pewter and brass I've been in some joints where they serve them in paper cups and maybe an old bar glass But it's all the same in the old drinkin' game, you drink and you try to forget One woman who loved you and another who didn't, and I ain't seen one winner yet

What have you got to lose What have you got to lose Try women and booze And the cigarette blues What have you got to lose Well I've been in some towns with some high rollin' heavies and I know some unknow scars The big equalizer is a good drink of liquer when they all belly up to the bar Some cry for fame, some cry for money, and some people reach for the sky But when a honky tonk heart starts cryin' for a honky tonk, you can't get a tear in edgeways What have you got to lose What have you got to lose Try women and booze And the cigarette blues What have you got to lose Now an old country boy just can't sit on the porch and watch while the worlds go by No, he's got to be part of some social endeavour so he gets him a jug and he tries He'll play that old juke box and chase them old lies while daylight comes to his room When that sun's comin' up he's 'bout half way to hell and about halfway back home by noon What have you got to lose What have you got to lose Try women and booze And the cigarette blues What have you got to lose (2X)
