Jakeys Gin  Great Big Sea

When [G]I was a young man I [Cadd9]was led astr[G]ay
I [Cadd9]met with a [G]buddy [Cadd9]down in [D]Logy [G]Bay
[G]we went out in all weather,
we [Cadd9]wore out our s[G]hoes,
goin' [Cadd9]up Kingsbridge [G]road for a [D]drink o' Booze

CHORUS:
Drink her [G]up, boys! it's [Cadd9]well after [G]ten
Drink her [G]up, boys! it's [D]well after [G]ten

G F|G F|G...

some people say that the Pinky is fine
others will swear by a drop of moonshine
but as for myself I've a bottle of each
mixed in with a gallon of dipper and screech

Chorus

It's the old shaving lotion thats made me this way
sweeter than Pepsi and stronger then tea
and when in the evening when we're feeling fine
we stop into Jakey's for icons and 'shine

Chorus

It's the old shaving lotion that's made me this way
sweeter then pepsi an' stronger than tea
and when in the morning when I'm feelin' rough
I curse old Jakey who sold me this stuff

CHORUS x2....

"Take a two-four out the door!"


Da-da-da-da-da-da....

Ah,whiskey you're the devil, you're leadin' me astray
over hills and mountains and to Americay
you're nicer, stronger, decenter, you're spunkier than tea
oh, whiskey you're me darlin' drunk or sober
