​Ashes in My Whiskey

This song is by Walter Davis and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

They put ashes in my whiskey, they put strychnine in my glass
They put ashes in my whiskey, they put strychnine in my glass
Lord I went out car‑riding with them, and they carried me too fast

She put castor oil in my coffee, with that black drops in my tea
She put black drops in my coffee, with that castor oil in my tea
Lord she's the meanest old woman, that a man most ever seen

I believe I believe, that they trying to carry me down
I believe I believe, that they trying to carry me down
Lord the way they are feeding me, that they don't want me around

She carries a razor in her pocket, with them frowns all in her face
She carries a razor in her pocket, with them frowns all in her face
Lord I believe some other good joker, trying to root me out of my place
