Black Powder & Alcohol
When the States and the cities fall
When your back is against the wall
Black Powder & Alcohol

Gimme charcoal to the measure two
(Send the bullet where you want it to)
Gimme sulfur to the measure three
(Make that powder gonna' keep you free)
Gimme salt peter, measure fifteen
Sweetest shootin' that you've ever seen.

Black Powder & Alcohol
When the States and the cities fall
When your back is against the wall
Black Powder & Alcohol

Gimme water, yeast and veggie trash
Leave it sittin' in a slurry mash
When it's ready put it in the still
If you can't heat it then the sunlight will
Draw the alcohol away and then
Put the slurry back and start again.

Black Powder & Alcohol
When the States and the cities fall
When your back is against the wall
Black Powder & Alcohol

It will clean your cuts or run your car
You can make it anywhere you are
Black powder in your cartridge shell
will send your robbers runnin' clean to hell
You can make 'em if you just know how so
Kids, remember what I'm teaching you now

Black Powder & Alcohol
When the States and the cities fall
When your back is against the wall
Black Powder & Alcohol
