New Drink for the Old Drunk
Crooked Fingers
Capo 2

D G AWould you try, could you buy a new drink for the old drunk
D G AIt’s no crime to resign misery with a bottle
G A Bm DWell, you walked into town without making a sound
G A Bm D And you slipped as you slammed your face into the crowd
G A Bm DAs you tried to forget all the words that were said
G A Bm DTo deny all the things that you keep in your head
G AWhen you came you were new but today you’re much older
D G AYou were spent so you went to get used in the corner
G A Bm DWhere they kicked you around like a rodeo clown
G A Bm DAnd it echoed through town they were beating you down
G A Bm DAnd as they spread the word that you liked how it hurt
G A Bm DAll at once you were cause for a pitiful cure
DHours pass by half forgotten
G ANight turns black ‘cause it’s rotten
DAnd we slide right to the bottom
G AOur tongues made out of cotton
DEyes seal shut in a slumber
G A‘Til we hear someone mumble
DCould you spare from the tumbler
G A A new drink for the old drunk
D G ANow you waste all your days in the dark in the corner
D G AWithout light, without grace, where you wait for the slaughter
G A Bm DWhere they spit in your face as the hours grow late
G A Bm DAnd they laugh as they lie and then seal up your fate
G A Bm DAnd you cringe as you binge to forget how you hate
G A Bm DAll the doom in this pitiful room you create
D Hours pass by half forgotten
G ANight turns black ‘cause it’s rotten
DAnd we slide right to the bottom
G AOur tongues made out of cotton
DEyes seal shut in a slumber
G A‘Til we hear someone mumble
DCould you spare from the tumbler
G A A new drink for the old drunk
