Product Description

“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”
Tom Waits ‘Bad Liver And A Broken Heart’
(Small Changes, 1976)
