Watch rising country music singer Mitchell Tenpenny's "Drunk Me" music video and acoustic performance.

Mitchell Tenpenny Drunk Me song and music video was released in 2018 and is the title track for his album.  The song is all about not being able to get over a break-up of a significant relationship.  “”Drunk Me” felt so good to me. It felt honest. It felt like I was telling the story that I’ve dealt with over and over again,” Tenpenny shared, “but the whole thing is real. I mean, it is exactly my emotions, exactly why I wrote the song.”

Story Behind the Song

Mitchell and his co-writers (Jordan Schmidt and Justin Wilson) were stumped for a hook that tied the lyrics together.  Jordan Schmidt took a break and solved the riddle in the bathroom.  “He went to the restroom, came back and he goes, ‘I got it. Drunk me,'” Tenpenny shared in the story behind the song. “And there was just something about that title that made sense for the whole thing.”

Mitchell Tenpenny Drunk Me Lyrics

Some people don’t know when to quit and that’s why they quit
Some need to hit the bottom to see they got a problem, they can’t handle it
But that ain’t why I started cleaning up my life
Wish it was but, ooh, that would be a lie

I’ve been sober ’cause there ain’t no hangover like you girl, no, no, no
Baby can you come over
I always find those words at the bottom of a hundred proof, yeah
Girl, every time you do
I just end up, head all messed up like the sheets where we made love
I’ve been sober since you broke my heart in two
‘Cause drunk me can’t get over you (there ain’t no hangover like you)
Can’t get over, can’t get over (there ain’t no hangover like you)
Oh, no, no, no

All those bottles sitting up on the shelf are just salt on the wound
One sip and I’m picking up the phone trying not to go home without you
And that ain’t nothing but a whole lotta pain
And that kind of hurt, ooh hurts, it ain’t worth another drink

I’ve been sober ’cause there ain’t no hangover like you, no, no, no
Baby, can you come over
I always find those words at the bottom of a hundred proof, yeah
Girl, every time you do I just end up
Head all messed up like the sheets where we made love
I’ve been sober since you broke my heart in two
‘Cause drunk me can’t get over you, no
Can’t get over you, oh, no, no, no
I’ve been sober ’cause there ain’t no hangover like you, no, no, no

Can you come over
I always find those words at the bottom of a hundred proof, yeah
Girl, every time you do I just end up
Head all messed up like the sheets where we made love
I’ve been sober since you broke my heart in two
‘Cause drunk me, yeah drunk me, yeah drunk me
Can’t get over you, no (there ain’t no hangover like you)
Can’t get over, can’t get over
(There ain’t no hangover like you), oh, no, no, no
