Hank Thompson - Teach 'em How To Swim

Babe you got me up a tree a way out on a limb

You told me lies you let me on then turned me down for him

You took my heart tore it all apart and then threw it away

And now that it's all over babe here's all I can say

Oh take my glass fill it up fill it to the brim

If I can't drown my troubles babe I'll teach 'em how to swim

If I can't teach 'em how to swim I'll teach 'em how to float

So please just pass one more glass to please my dusty throat

Grandpa's swallowed his first drink when he was only eight

The doctor warned him then and there to stop before it was too late

But grandpa was a real strong man he wouldn't heed the plea

Now he's done drink hisself to death he died at ninety-three

So since my grandpa lived so long I want to be like him

If I can't drown my troubles babe I'll teach 'em how to swim

So here I sit in this old bar my future's looking dim

If I can't drown my troubles babe I'll teach 'em how to swim

Oh take my glass fill it up...
