i’m getting wasted doing nothing lyrics – billy burnette

written by billy burnette.
i’m getting wasted doing nothing
my mind is drifting far away
i hocked my guitar for a dozen dollar bills
i wish that there was some other way

i play my songs in a bar down on main street
only one i know of for miles around
and people get to drinking and they fall asleep
and the owner says to move on to some other town

so, i just get my guitar and run
until i can find someone to make music

i met a girl who works in a drug store
got sky-blue eyes like you’ve never seen
i think i’m gonna grab her and walk on out the door
i’m gonna make some music that’s just so darn mean
