I'll Go Down Swinging

This song is by Bill Anderson and appears on the album Bright Lights and Country Music (1965).

The one I love don't want me hanging round
All she does is put me on and put me down
Tonight she's with a stranger at a party in her home
And I'm here at a tavern gettin' stoned.

'Cause if I gotta go, I'll go down swinging
Where there's lights and laughter
Booze and blonds and a lots of sad, sad singing
I'll sober up tomorrow and cry all day I know
At least I'll go down swinging, what a swinging way to go.

I'll dance with all the girls and buy the wine
Play the jukebox till I'm down to my last dime
She thinks she made a fool of me by loving someone else
She should see me make a fool out of myself.

'Cause if I gotta go, I'll go down swinging
Where there's lights and laughter
Booze and blonds and a lots of sad, sad singing
I'll sober up tomorrow and cry all day I know
At least I'll go down swinging, what a swinging way to go...
