Ain’t Drinkin’ Beer No More – Robben Ford

Ain’t Drinkin’ Beer No More – Robben Ford

I love playing guitar, and was in the music business when I was younger. Some of my crazy behaviour was influenced by others that I hung around with back then. Anyway there are a lot of positive people who write and play good music as well and I have found them a great form of inspiration over the past few years and some have been really supportive. I’m actually a much better player these days, than when I was drinking and trying to make a living at this!

I’m off to see Robben Ford tonight who is a great player who I have seen many times over the years since his days with Miles Davis. He is not one of the crazy ones, and lives a good lifestyle, with a Buddhist outlook. He has a new album out and it has the song “Ain’t Drinkin’ Beer No More” which some of you should learn!

Ain’t Drinkin’ Beer No More

 

1st Verse

 

I’ve had a thing for the hop, think it might have to stop

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

Who knew the work of monks could lead to so many drunks

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

Its time I turn this boat around

Keep gaining pound after pound

 I’m going back to shore

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

 

2nd Verse

 

The woman I call my queen is lately a little bit mean

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

She used to call me “My Sweet,” now she just says ” Hey…Meat…”

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

It might have been alright  in my youth

But she’s telling me the bitter truth

It’s time I closed that door

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

 

Bridge

 

I’ll do what’s best for me

And turn to herbal tea

Say goodbye to that fuzzy glow (Oh, no!)

Go to church on Sunday

Start walking right on Monday

 

3rd Verse

 

I used to feel like a fighter, walk a whole lot lighter

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

Pass on the meat and three, eat greens and fruit of the sea

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

I used to dress myself in style

Could run a seven minute mile

Now I’ve become a bore

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

 

I’m driving past the store

Ain’t drinkin’ beer no more

 

that’s just about enough of that…

maybe one for the road…
