in. Sounds good without also. Simple uD,uD country strum.

0,2,4 = on 6th(E)string
Riff = hold E shape and hammer on/pull off on 2nd(B)String 3th fret
Riff2= hold A shape and hammer on/pull off on 2nd(B)String 3rd fret
E   022100
A   002220
B7  021200    easy move from E

On long E chord hammer on and off with 2 finger occationaly
listen for it...

E (ring Out)............0,2,4
 The bars are all closed
     A           E
It's four in the morning

Must have shut'em all down
By the shape that I'm in
I lay my head 	on the wheel
        A           E
And the horn begins honking

The whole neighborhood knows
 	 B7	    E     Riff
That I'm home drunk again

        0    2   4     A    E
 And if drinking don't kill me
Her memory will
 	0    2   4    A    E
I can't hold out much lon..ger
The way that I feel
 	 0     2    4  A   E
With the blood from my bo..dy
 	             A   (Riff2)
I could start my own still
       0    2   4     A    E
And if drinking don't kill me
      B7    E
Her mem	ory will

A,E B7 E

(No Chords)                        0,2,4
These will old bones they move slow
       A             E
But so sure of their footsteps
As I trip on the floor and lightly touch down
 	  E                        A        E
Lord it's been ten bottles since I tried to forget her
 		             B7                E      (riff)
But the memory still lingers lying here on the ground

About the artist behind If Drinking Dont Kill Me Chords:

George Glenn Jones (born September 12, 1931), is an award-winning American country music singer known for his long list of hit records, his distinctive voice and phrasing, and his marriage to Tammy Wynette.

Jones has had more songs than any other singer on the US Country charts – 167 as of November, 2005.[citation needed] He has also had the most Top 40 Hits – 143 – and is second to Eddy Arnold with the most Top 10 Hits – 78.[citation needed] Over the past twenty years, Jones has frequently been referred to as "the greatest living country singer"[1] and "the Rolls-Royce of country singers." Frank Sinatra once called him "the best white male singer."[citation needed] The country music scholar Bill C. Malone writes, "For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved."

Throughout his long career, Jones made headlines often as much for tales of his drinking, stormy relationships with women, and violent rages as for his prolific career of making records and touring. His wild lifestyle led to Jones missing many performances, earning him the nickname "No Show Jones", but Jones never hid or denied his faults and now, with the help of his fourth wife, he has been "clean" for years. Jones clocked up scores of hits during his career, both as a solo artist and in duets with other artists.
