Song: The Ol' Black Rum Tab

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.
