By david allan coe

She's just a tear I used to cry

Long before we said good bye

Now she's just a lady that I used to know

When the bottle took her place

She was a mirror I had to face

And a dream I dared to dream some time ago

I lost her eyes to a whole bunch of pena coladas

After a few margaritas I took all the blame

For drinking manhattans at tree in the morning I lost her

Between the vodka and gin and the beer and champagne

I lost her lips late one night on a strawberry daiquiri

Jack daniels, whiskey and rum couldn't help me that time

I lost her arms and her hands to a glass of tequila

I lost her heart and her soul to a bottle of wine

I lost a bet that our love would last forever

Sloe gin and tonic was making my heart hard to find

With two bloody mary's I ran out of vodka this morning

Losing my chances of drinking her off of my mind
