CIGAREETES, WHUSKY AND WILD, WILD WOMEN
Recorded by The Sons Of The Pioneers
Words and music by Tim Spencer
[G] Cigareettes and Whusky and [C] Wild, Wild [G] Women
They'll drive you crazy; They'll [A] drive you in-[D] sane [A] [D]
Ciga-[G] reettes and Whusky and [C] Wild, Wild [G] Women
They'll drive you crazy; They'll [D] drive you in-[G] sane.
[G] Once I was happy and [C] had a good [G] wife ...
I had enough money to [A] last me for [D] life [A] [D]
I [G] met with a gal and we [C] went on a [G] spree ...
She started me smokin' and [D] drinkin' whus-[G] key.
Now I am feeble and broken with age
The lines on my face make a well-written page
I'm leavin this message; how sad but how true
On women and whuskey and what they can do.
Write on the cross at the head of my grave
For women and whuskey here lies a poor slave
Take warning dear stranger, take warning dear friend
Then write in big letters these words at the end.
