"Whiskey" as written by and Charles Edward Daniels....
MY FAMILY'S ALWAYS BEEN IN WHISKEY
IT'S A SIMPLE HONEST WAY TO EARN A DIME
THE ONLY TROUBLE'S BEEN MY UNCLE SAM NOW
HE BEEN TRYIN' TO COLLECT TAXES ALL THE TIME
NOW THIS AIN'T NO ORDINARY CHEVY
THE MOTOR AND SUSPENSION AIN'T THE SAME
WHISKEY AS YOU KNOW IS VERY HEAVY
AND GETTING THROUGH IS WHAT THEY CALL THE GAME

CHORUS:
IT'S A DARK AND RAINY NIGHT BUT MY ENGINE'S RUNNING RIGHT
AND I HOPE TO GET TO MEMPHIS BEFORE DAWN
YEAH AND IF I MAKE IT THROUGH, GONNA SAVE WHAT I HAVE TO
THEN HELP ME RUNNING WHISKEY VERY LONG

THREE HUNDRED MILES FROM HOME TO MEMPHIS
THERE'S A DOZEN MEN ALONG THE WAY
NEVER STOP AND LET 'EM DO NO LOOKING
YEAH, THAT WAS WHAT MY PAPPY USED TO SAY

REPEAT CHORUS

OH THERE'S THREE HUNDRED MILES FROM HOME TO MEMPHIS
AND SUSAN SAYS SHE DON'T WANT ME TO GO
SHE SAID NOW HONEY DON'T TAKE CHANCES
AH LOVE I WANT TO KEEP YA DON'T YA KNOW

REPEAT CHORUS
