                VERSE 1-

G            D              G
I drank 16 doubles for the price of one
C                             D
Tryin to find the courage to talk to one
            C     G        C      G
I asked her for a dance, not a second glance
My night had just begun


G                       D            G
Well I'd drink to the father or the holy ghost
C                                    D
Kneeling at the alter of my nightly post
     C     G            C      G
And I'll raise a glass, not the first or last
come join me in this toast


            D                     G
'Cause the Ol' black rum's got a hold on me
       C                 D
Like a dog wrapped 'round my leg
        D                     G
And the Ol' black rum's got a hold on me
       C    D    Em   C
Will I live for another day..hey?
    C        D     G
Will I live for another day?


      G          D              G
The queen of George Street just went walkin' on by

                                                     C                                     D
Walkin' on by with some guy who don't care
     C         G       C      G
That she stood in line since half past nine
And spent three hours on her hair
G          D              G
Her friend is lookin' at me with an evil grin
C                                   D
I think a bloody racket might soon begin
C                  G           C         G
I must have said something to the George Street queen

Now the boys are joining in.


VERSE 4 - 

G           D              G
So I drank all of my money and I slept out in the rain

C                                                D        
Every day is different, but the nights are all the same
     C         G       C      G
You never see the sun on the old black rum
And I know I'm gonna do it again.
