Lyrics Heaven Was a Drink of Wine

That psychoed out psychologist asked me about my drinking ways
Every question that he asked me
All related back on to my childhood days
But if the truth was known
I never took to drinking long long as she was mine
But when she left me
I went to hell heaven was a drink of wine
That good doctor said look at all these ink spots and tell me what you see
Could I help it if they all looked like big ol' broken hearts to me?
All my friends and kin will tell you
Ol' Hag ain't the drinking kind
But when she left me
I went to hell
And heaven was a drink of wine
Get back
Get back
Get on back and leave me alone
Can't you see that you can't help a man that's this far gone
Hey good doctor
I've got something you can't find in my mind
When she left me
I went to hell heaven was a drink of wine
Hey good doctor heaven was a drink of wine
