beer and bones lyrics – john michael montgomery

(sanger d. shafer/lonnie williams)

i ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones
honey since i lost you
i ain’t ate a bite
since the night
that you said we’re through
i walked to that jukebox to play
a few sad country songs
i heard someone say
hey that old boy
ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones

i got to work this morning
early this afternoon
yeah my boss man nudged me
said son i need to talk to you
you used to make me money
but lately i been taking a loss
well he smelled my breath
gave me what was left
of the day off

i ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones
honey since i lost you
i ain’t ate a bite
since the night
that you said we’re through
i walked to that jukebox to play
a few sad country songs
i heard someone say
hey that old boy
ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones

well i wish i could go home
and rest my weary head
but i know i’ll just stay here
and have another beer instead
that little waitress asked me
honey could you use some help
i said i thank you miss
i’ll have to get through this
by my dang self

i ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones
honey since i lost you
i ain’t ate a bite
since the night
that you said we’re through
i walked to that jukebox to play
a few sad country songs
i heard someone say
hey that old boy
ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones
i heard someone say
hey that old boy
ain’t nothin’ but beer and bones
