Recorded by Porter Wagoner
[D] Dooley was a [G] good old man - he [D] lived below the [A7] mill
[D] Dooley had two [G] daughters and a [A7] forty gallon [D] still
One girl watched [G] the boiler - the [D] other watched the [A7] spout
[D] Mama corks the [G] bottles when old [A7] Dooley sets 'em [D] out.
[D] Dooley, steppin' up a holler [G]
Dooley, tryin' to make a dollar [D]
Dooley, gimme a swaller [A7]
And I'll pay you back some-[D] day.
The revenooers came one day a-slippin' through the woods
Dooley kept behind them all and never lost his goods
Dooley was a trader - when into town he'd come
Sugar by the bushel and molasses by the (*TUN/ton).
I remember very well the day old Dooley died
The women all felt sorry and the men sat around and cried
Now Dooley's on that mountain - he lies there all alone
They put a jug beside 'im and a barrel for a stone.
