Broken Hearted People Lyrics

 

Broken Hearted People - Guy Clark

Now broken hearted people always seem to drink

And tryin' to drown those sorrows ain't as easy as you think

But living with a liar is a hard old way to go

Laughin' just to keep from crying ain't no way to grow old

 

So take me to a barroom driver

Set me on a stool

If I can't be her man

I'm damned if I'll be her fool

 

They say that whiskey ain't the best way but then I ain't too smart

To think I just found out she was lyin' from the start

So if this is nothing but a bad joke lookin' for a laugh

Hold on to your lampshade darlin' cause I'm looking for a hat

So take me to a barroom driver

Set me on a stool

If I can't be her man

I'm damned if I'll be her fool

 

So get this taxi movin' cause I got no time to lose

There's no time to be choosy any old bar will do

 

Cause I'm lookin' to get silly and I'm lookin' to get loose

And if that don't get it done darlin' I'll come looking for you

So take me to a barroom driver

Set me on a stool

If I can't be her man

I'm damned if I'll be her fool

 

So take me to a barroom driver

Set me on a stool

If I can't be her man

 

I'm damned if I'll be her fool
