John Henderson

4:4 Key:G

(Spoken)
A preachment, dear friends, you’re about to receive
on John Barleycorn, nicotine and the temptations of Eve

[G] Once I was happy and [C] had a good [G] wife
I had enough money to last me for [D] life
Then I [G] met with a gal and we [C] went on a [G] spree
She taught me smokin' and [D] drinkin' [G] whiskee

[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll drive you [D] insa – ay – ane
[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll [D] drive you [G] insane.

[G] Cigarettes are a blight on the [C] whole human [G] race
A man is a monkey with one in his [D] face;
[G] Take warning dear friend, [C] take warning dear [G] brother
A fire's on one end, a [D] fools on the [G] t'other.

[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll drive you [D] insa – ay – ane
[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll [D] drive you [G] insane.

[G] And now good people, I'm [C] broken with [G] age
The lines on my face make a well written [D] page
[G] I'm weavin' this story -- [C] how sadly but [G] true
On women and whiskey and [D] what they [G] can do

[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll drive you [D] insa – ay – ane
[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll [D] drive you [G] insane.

[G] Write on the cross at the [C] head of my [G] grave
For women and whiskey here lies a poor [D] slave.
[G] Take warnin' poor stranger, [C] take warnin' dear [G] friend
In wide clear letters this [D] tale of my [G] end.

[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll drive you [D] insa – ay – ane
[G] Cigarettes and whiskey and [C] wild, wild [G] women
They’ll drive you crazy. They’ll [D] drive you [G] insane.
