Wiskeyhead Blues

This song is by "Funny Paper" Smith and appears on the compilation album The Original Howling Wolf, 1930-1931 (1972) by Funny Papa Smith.

I was woke up this mornin' by taste of gasoline
I was woke up this mornin' by taste of gasoline
But when I woke up I found out wasn't nothin' but my whiskey dream

I drink so much whiskey, it's a wonder that I ain't dead
I drink so much whiskey, it's a wonder that I ain't dead
All around in my neighbourhood the people call me a whiskeyhead

I'm drunk Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I'm drunk Thursday Friday and Saturday too
I'm drunk Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I'm drunk Thursday Friday and Saturday too
And on Sunday I'm at church, but that ain't what I want to do

You know how I am, you been knowin' me a great long time
You know how I am, you been knowin' me a great long time
You know I like my good lookin' women and I gotta have my moonshine

I wished I had a drink this mornin', I ain't nothin' but a drunken slave
I wished I had a drink this mornin', I ain't nothin' but a drunken slave
Come on boys go bury me, 'cause I'm goin' dig my grave

Now the fool that started me ta drinkin', I hope that he's dead and gone
Now the fool that started me ta drinkin', I hope that he's dead and gone
I hope to leave him in Whiskey Alley where ain't nothin' down there but bottles and bones
