Whiskey Man

1-21-2017-whiskey-man-x

Have ye ever seen it empty

drink it from the bottom

They fill it up & up ye go

laughing in the barroom

Have ye ever known a pretty girl

who isn’t mad for dancing

whose passion grows & up ye go

whiskey man romancing

This one’s for the whiskey man

set ‘em up & knock ‘em down

Another for the whiskey man

ready for another round

 

Sometimes he rides a bicycle

and leaves it at the bar

The police locked him up a lot

he used to drive a car

When he called the operator

said, “Honey, please trace this call

The lights are out, the gig is up

but I sure had a ball,” yeah

This one’s for the whiskey man

set ‘em up & knock ‘em down

Another for the whiskey man

ready for another round we go

 

He always gives me a listen

never starts no trouble

It sure gives me a lift-me-up

to buy that man a double

He’s grateful as a puppy

a friend who has no friends

whose toothless smile says, “Up we go”

empty glasses end to end, yeah

This one’s for the whiskey man

set ‘em up & knock ‘em down

Another for the whiskey man

ready for another round we go again

 

I found the whiskey man one day

his head down on the bar

I’d never had to hold him up

that boiler maker star

Laid him in a wooden box

so when all the ladies passed

they could have a look-me-see

and kiss his whiskey ass, yeah

This one’s for the whiskey man

set ‘em up and knock ‘em down

Another for the whiskey man

ready for another round we go again and again and again
