Leave me here with my bottle of wine and let me drink it by myself.
‘Cause I don’t need a thing from you, so leave me to myself.

Troubles come and troubles they go. I guess you know the tune.
But all my days, all my troubles stayed and left me howling at the moon.

I came into this here town seven months ago.
I just wish I could hop that train and make my way back home.
‘Cause home is where the heart is and where you hang your hat.
The last time I saw my old lady, she threw me out on my back.

Now all you kids just leave me alone and I won’t bother you.
‘Cause I sure wish that I could crawl inside of this here bottle of booze.
‘Cause I’d set sail on the seas of merlot,
and maybe I’d change my tune.
‘Cause I’d see the world in a different light inside my little round glass room.

Oh no. I never stood a chance.
