Pints of guinness make you strong Lyrics

Pints of guinness make you strong by Against Me!  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Pints of guinness make you strong Evelyn sits by the elevator doors
it's been 37 years since James died
on St.Patricks day in 1964
but she could not hold it against him
there were times when there was nothing she could do
but lie in bed all day besides a picture of them together
a picture of better days

and just like James I'll be drinking irish tonight
and the memory of this last workweek will be gone forever
Evelyn, I'm not coming home tonight
if we're never together, if I'm never back again
well I swear to god that I'll love you forever
Evelyn, I'm not coming home tonight

in all the years that went by she said she'd always love him
and from the day that he died she never loved again
in his wallet she kept on her nightstand
an A.A. card and a lock of red hair
she kept secret of pride locked so tight in her heart
it killed a part of her before the rest was gone
she said, "if I would have known just how things would have ended up
I just would have let myself die"

and just like James I'll be drinking iris tonight
and the memory of this last workweek will be gone forever
Evelyn, I'm not coming home tonight
if we're never together, if I'm never back again
well i swear to god that I'll love you forever
Evelyn, I'm not coming home tonight.
