Lyrics:

Well, I've been chasing these dollars, chasing these dreams/ Tonight, I think i'm gonna chase them both down with Jim Beam/ Between the 90 proof and these bright neon signs/ a man in this condition could drink himself blind

Mr. Jukebox, Mr. Jukebox won't you play that same old song/ because it's back to the barrooms, right back where I belong/ you know she left me as empty as this bottle in my hand/ when she walked out the door and threw down her wedding band

Is the bottle half empty or am I half a fool/ caught somewhere between heaven and hell halfway over you/ and I've gone through cheap whiskey and expensive ladies/ is the bottle half empty or am I half a fool.

I've been finding new ways to pass the time/ between the whiskey, smoke, and the wine/ I'm going through the 90 proof like I've got something left to prove/ since you left me on this bar stool all alone

I'm just another barstool prophet in a fool's paradise/ and tonight when darkness find them I'll poor those dreams over ice

Is the bottle half empty or am I half a fool/ caught somewhere between heaven and hell halfway over you/ and I've gone through cheap whiskey and expensive ladies/ is the bottle half empty or am I half a fool.

Yes, the bottle's now empty/ and I'm still your fool
