The Old Black Rum

Click Here for guitar tabs.

I drank sixteen doubles for the price of one
Trying to find the courage to talk to one
I asked her for a dance, not a second glance
My night had just begun

Well I drink to the Father or the Holy Ghost
I'm kneeling at the altar of my nightly post
So I'll raise the glass, not the first or last
Come join me in this toast

Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
Well I'm here for another day, Hey
Well I'm here for another day

Well the queen of George Street just a walking on by.
Walking on by with some guy who don't care
That she stood in line since half past nine.
And spent three hours on her hair....on her hair

Well my friend is looking at me with an evil grin
I think the bloody racket might soon begin
I must have said something to the George Street queen
And the boys are joining in

Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
Well I'm here for another day, Hey
Well I'm here for another day

So I drank all of my money and I slept out in the rain
Every day is different but the nights are all the same
You never see the sun on the old black rum
But I know I'm gonna do it again

Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
Well I'm here for another day, Hey
Well I'm here for another day
