Oh Misery
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I walked out to a rainy midnight; street lights dimmed in fog
I tried the whiskey but her memory lingers on
A little temptation and a whole lotta gin
Has brought me to this lonely nowhere; what a fool I've been

CHORUS
What makes a man like me turn bad
Lose the best thing I've ever had?
She treated me like I was a king
She was my queen, my everything
Will I ever get back, ooh, what used to be?
I took the fall; I lost it all -- oh, misery

VERSE
I crushed out my last cigarette, stepped out on the street
How could I ever forget the love she shared with me?
The street is dead and empty; just how I feel inside
There's no place now for me to go, nowhere to hide

Repeat CHORUS

SOLO

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Will I ever get back, ooh, what used to be?
I took the fall; I lost it all -- oh, misery
