​A Drunk Can't Be A Man

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album Alone Again (1976) and on the album Walking the Line (1987) by ​Merle Haggard, ​George Jones and ​Willie Nelson.

He embarrasses his child and wife
Lord, he leads a miserable life
But still he thinks the bottle is his right hand

Yes and he can tear down more
Than he's ever built before
A man can be a drunk sometimes
But a drunk can't be a man

He lets your business lag behind
For the nightlife he can find
Why he does all this he'll never understand

And in the morning when he wakes up
Lord, he can't wait to fill his cup
A man can be a drunk sometimes
But a drunk can't be a man

For he goes from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde
He seems proud to have the devil for his guide

Still he keeps on reachin' out
Lord, he needs a helping hand
But a man can be a drunk sometimes
But a drunk can't be a man

Yes, a man can be a drunk sometimes
But a drunk can't be a man
