Lyrics

You like tears and I like pain
A good excuse to drink again
Can’t bring me to my senses without wine
Gin will make a man too tough
Too much beer is not enough
But the blood of Christ at a discount price
Is the only way to make me cry

We woke up in Milwaukee
Went to bed in Sturgeon Bay
I guess we didn’t wanna be at home
The sign above read Pigsville
Nothin’ more to say
They told me the high life
Would treat me a different way

You like tears and I like pain
A good excuse to drink again
Can’t bring me to my senses without wine
Gin will make a man too tough
Too much beer is not enough
But the blood of Christ at a discount price
Is the only way to make me cry

Cross the devil’s river
Hitchhikin’ up to Trivers
On Highway 43
The 30-pack from Sheboygan’s gettin’ low
The night’s gettin’ clearer in the rearview mirror
As the miles keep rollin’ on
Hit the Crazy 8 in Tisch Mills
We’re livin’ in a drinkin’ song

You like tears and I like pain
A good excuse to drink again
Can’t bring me to my senses without wine
Gin will make a man too tough
Too much beer is not enough
But the blood of Christ at a discount price
Is the only way to make me cry

Did a bit of sloppy kissin’ at the Steelhead Saloon
Washed-up alewives waftin’ on the breeze
By the time we got back to Sturgeon
We were two shots shy of dead
We bent down to kiss the ground
Booted off the bridge instead

You like tears and I like pain
A good excuse to drink again
Can’t bring me to my senses without wine
Gin will make a man too tough
Too much beer is not enough
But the blood of Christ at a discount price
Is the only way to make me cry

I said the blood of Christ at a discount price
Is the only way to make me cry
