  1. Drunk Again

From the recording Drunk Again

A time honored tradition, the Screaming Clams close their evening’s performance with the singing of this anthem, Drunk Again, usually joined by a chorus of those patrons still remaining in the bar at this late hour. The sentiments echoed in the refrain have universal appeal, as does the literary allusion to the “guns and ammo of fortune.” As the last beer is quaffed, a sense of sadness begins to stir as the strains of the last verse die away into oblivion

Lyrics

Drunk Again
(Words and music by Jimi Dee)
 
Well I’m drunk again, empty bottle’s my only friend.
When I’m away from you, you know I feel so blue!
When those guns and ammo of fortune blows a hole right through my heart,
I’ll be thinking of you the whole time we’re apart.
 
Well it’s Saturday night in the Lone Star State.
Last call’s been made, and it a’gettin’ late.
When the guns and ammo of fortune blast a hole right through my heart,
I’ll be thinking of you the whole time we’re apart.
 
I’ll have one more beer, bring it over here.
I’ll try not to drink it fast, I’m gonna make it last.
When those guns and ammo of fortune blows a hole right through my heart,
I’ll be thinking of you the whole time we’re apart.
 
I’ll have one more beer…
I’ll have another one more beer…
When the guns and ammo of fortune blast a hole right through my heart,
I’ll be thinking of you the whole time…
Well I’m drunk again.
