Bad liver and a broken heart (in lowell)

by Tom Waits


Well I got a bad liver and broken heart, yeah,
I drunk me a river since you tore me apart
And I don´t have a drinking problem, ´cept when I can´t get a drink
And I wish you´d a-known her, we were quite a pair,
She was sharp as a razor and soft as a prayer
So welcome to the continuing saga, she was my better half, and I was just a dog
And so here am I slumped, I´ve been chipped and I´ve been chumped on my stool
So buy this fool some spirits and libations, it´s these railroad station bars
And all these conductors and porters, and I´m all out of quarters
And this epitaph is the aftermath, yeah I choose my path, hey, come on, Kath,
He´s a lawyer, he ain´t the one for ya
No, the moon ain´t romantic, it´s intimidating as hell,
And some guy´s trying to sell me a watch
And so I´ll meet you at the bottom of a bottle of bargain Scotch
I got me a bottle and a dream, it´s so maudlin it seems,
You can name your poison, go on ahead and make some noise
I ain´t sentimental, this ain´t a purchase, it´s a rental, and it´s purgatory,
And hey, what´s your story, well I don´t even care
´Cause I got my own double-cross to bear

And I´ll see your Red Label, and I´ll raise you one more,
And you can pour me a cab, I just can´t drink no more,
´Cause it don´t douse the flames that are started by dames,
It ain´t like asbestos
It don´t do nothing but rest us assured,
And substantiate the rumors that you´ve heard
