The Lyrics

Intro: Wife is drunkenly talking sternly to her husband who, yet again, is in the drunk tank.
Oh you hit the levee in your 56 Chevy
Why don't you sleep it off in the “tank”
You chugged all of my Captain
The Fireball was scorching
Like a mug of cold Dos Equis
I will do the laundry
Since you drank all the bills
You ain’t no John Wayne
You ain’t no prairie song
You ain’t no happy ending
Why are all the cowboys dru-u-unks?
Why don't you stay the evening
Kick back and watch the TV
But you’ll chug a bottled liquor like tea
Oh I know your back hurts from falling off the tractor
I’ll throw your coffee on you my sweet
I will raise the children
Since you drink all the bills
You ain’t no John Wayne
You ain’t no prairie song
You ain’t no happy ending
Why are all the cowboys dru-u-unks?
I am wearing my new dress tonight
But you don't, but you don't even notice me
Say goodbyes
Say goodbyes
Say goodbyes
You totaled out your Chevy
When you had another mai tai
And you lost the job in Tennessee
You lost friends at the farm
And got kicked out of the bar
Almost every single day of the week
I will drink more coffee
Since you drank all the beer
You ain’t no John Wayne
You ain’t no prairie song
You ain’t no happy ending
Why are all the cowboys dru-u-unks?
Where is my Marlboro man
He pawned his shiny gun
Where is my drunken ranger
Why are all the cowboys dru-u-unks?
Why are all the cowboys dru-u-unks?
Why are all the cowboys dru-u-unks?
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Wife pulls out a half-drank bottle of liquor, chugs the rest in front of him, and gets thrown in the tank with her husband.
