Tears will be the chaser for your wine You sit there and tell me how you'd like to be free
You're tired of bein' tied down to a home and family
You say you miss the bright lights along the great white way Little do you realize the price you have to pay Tears will be the chaser for your wine after you leave this love of mine Bright lights and taverns that's where you'll spend your time And tears will be the chaser for your wine
( dobro )
Before you make up your mind you really want to go Stop and think it over there's something you don't know
When the part is over then what will you do And tears will be the chaser.When you wanna come back there'll be no place for you.
