I came in to this bar to have me a drink or two

then I turned around and ran right smack dab in to you

I thought that I left you on the other side of the mountain

when I climbed down here to have me a drink from this fountain

where I found you standing in the way of my dreams it's true

I just can't get away from you by drowning in my blues.

Like a sore thumb hit by a hammer by damned

another bill laid before me from old Uncle Sam

hit hard in the stomach of love by a ram

can't get away from you no matter where I am.

A complete stranger down at the end of the bar

came up to me and said mister, yore away out thar

It's like you left yer mind on the other side of the mountain

here buddy this drink is gonna be on me cause yore poutin'

and you can't chase em mares away cause they'll find you

you just can't get away from em by drowning in yer blues.

Like a sore thumb hit by a hammer by damned

another bill laid before me from old Uncle Sam

hit hard in the stomach of love by a ram

can't get away from you no matter where I am.

So you haunt me and taunt me like a ghost in the night

and I'm here getting drunk cause I can't put up a fight

with a dream left there on the other side of the mountain

when I climbed down here to have me a drink from this fountain

where memories come shimmering back like old song tunes

I just can't get away from you by drowning in my blues.

Like a sore thumb hit by a hammer by damned

another bill laid before me from old Uncle Sam

hit hard in the stomach of love by a ram

can't get away from you no matter where I am.

I came in to this bar to have me a drink or two

then I turned around and ran right smack dab in to you

I thought that I left you on the other side of the mountain

when I climbed down here to have me a drink from this fountain

where I found you standing in the way of my dreams it's true

I just can't get away from you by drowning in my blues.
