Whiskey Bill

from New West Town by Bard Michael

The Rookery exclusive

lyrics

Bill was a wainwright he could have done worse 
But he was vexed by a vicious curse 
Every day at dusk he turned 
Into a scoundrel with a voracious thirst 
And only one drink could ever quell 
The Beast inside that screamed and yelled

One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey give me more

Then Bill met a lady who cured his ills 
And saved him from that awful swill 
For his sobriety he paid a witch’s price 
Each night he had to sacrifice 
A relative or friend to still his mind 
But soon Bill ran out of kin and kind

So he fixed his gaze upon the town 
Men, women and children aroused 
MURDEROUS thoughts in the mind of Bill 
Without the whiskey he’d surely kill

One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey give me more

Few bother Bill anymore and every eve left by his door 
Is a bottle of his favorite liquor 
With lipstick signed Sweet dreams love Lenore

One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey, give me more
