         G                                       C
Well it all began in my high school days when I spent the summer with my cousin Jake
         D                                  G
We were helpin' his daddy out on the dairy farm
        G                                     C 
Now on Sundays we didn't have to work and one Sunday when his daddy was off to church
D                                           G
Jake invited me to share my first six-pack out in the barn
        G                                      C
He said you take one and I'll have the rest, brother this'll put some hair on your chest
   D                                                G
So I got on with the hair-growin' and I chugged it down
          G                                                 C
Well you shoulda seen the look in my cousin's eyes when I jumped off the loft 'cause I

Thought I could fly
D                                         G
I was actin' like a crazy fool runnin' around
         G                                              C
When his daddy got home and he heard the noise, he come runnin' to the barn to check on us boys
D                                                     G
He took one look at me and said Bill what's got into you
          G                                   C
Well he began to pray to get the demons out, and it musta worked cuz when I opened my mouth
D                                     G
I lost my demons all over his Sunday suit

N/C          G
I'm a cheap drunk, that's what I am (that' what I am)
           D                 G
I get tore up on one little can (just one little can)
           C                            G
I may not last that long but we'll have fun
              D                       G
Have mercy on me, 'cause I'm a cheap drunk


          G                              C     
Now I've been this for most of my life, as a matter of fact that's how I met my wife
D                                         G
She was sittin' at the bar lookin' like a dream
       G                                                  C
Well I walked right up and said my name is Bill, I could tell by her look she was

Less than thrilled
D                                             G
But I said honey, do you mind if I buy you a drink
         G                             C
She said ok Phil let's have some fun, then the night became a danged marathon
D                                                  G
She was tossin' 'em back like she was drinkin' ice tea
        G                                                C
Before long the room started spinnin' 'round, but I was determined I was gonna stand my ground
D                                       G
No woman was ever gonna get the best of me
         G                                              C
Well the last words I slurred were I'll have one more, then somehow I woke up kissin' the floor
D                                              G
And to tell you the truth I don't remember the fall
     G                                            C
But standin' over me was a lady in white, I said what happened and where the hell am I
D                                                    G
And that's when she introduced herself as Mrs. Bill Engvall


              D                       G              
Have mercy on me, 'cause I'm a cheap drunk

SPOKEN: That's right, alright boys it's party time, somebody put another dollar in the 
        jukebox, and we're gonna rock it tonight


              D    N/C
Have mercy on me, 'cause I'm a cheap drunk

SPOKEN: That's right boys, I've had my fill, I'm gonna go ugly early, somebody call me a
        cab, I gotta go
