"Drinker Born" as written by and Rayna Gellert....


Drinker Born

Rayna Gellert, Uncle Earl


I called up my bootlegger

Begged him to come to town

Said if you don?t bring me another quart of corn

Gonna jump in that river and drown

Gonna jump in that river and drown


And it?s oh, it?s a hard life

When you?re a drinker born

The only thing I ever did wrong

Was take that first sip of corn


My mama always told me

Drink?ll be the ruin of you

Now I?ve lost my home and I?ve lost my love

What is a poor girl to do

Tell me what is a poor girl to do


Chorus


Now don?t you see that lonesome dove

Flying from pine to pine

She?s mourning for her own lost home

Just like I mourn for mine

Just like I mourn for mine


Chorus


Won?t you pass me your bottle

Be it corn or rye

If I don?t get some whiskey soon

Gonna lay me down and die

Gonna lay me down and die


Chorus
