Drank Like A River

Lyrics: Ryan Adams et al
Music: Ryan Adams et al

A Whiskeytown song sung by Brian Lesh with Phil Lesh and Friends.

He was nearly died when he returned to the town where he'd come from
He's brown baggin' it tonight, behind some tavern
Somebody wrecked his life, and I bet you it was his darlin'
Somebody wrecked his life, and I bet you it was his darlin'

So he drank like a river when their wedding bells rang
Watched from the steeple as the choir girls sang
Died in the gutter on his feet and his hands
Same hands that once touched her face

He was nearly died when he returned to the town he'd come from
He's hanging out drinking beer with his brother in-law
He was a drinker at night, in the morning he was unnerving
He was a drinker full time, the day that he lost his darlin'

So he drank like a river when their wedding bells rang
Watched from the steeple as the choir girls sang
Died in the gutter on his feet and his hands
Same hands that once touched her face

So he drank like a river when their wedding bells rang
Watched from the steeple as the choir girls sang
Died in the gutter on his feet and his hands
Same hands that once touched her face
