Old Black Rum  Great Big Sea

I drank [F]sixteen doubles for the [C]price of [F]one
[Bb]Trying to find the c[F]ourage to ta[G]lk to on[C]e
I asked her [Bb]for [C]a da[F]nce, not a [Bb]sec[C]ond gla[F]nce
My night had just [C]begun

Well I d[F]rink to the Father or the Ho[C]ly Gh[F]ost
[Bb]I'm kneeling at the al[F]tar of my ni[G]ghtly p[C]ost
So I'll rai[Bb]se th[C]e gl[F]ass, not the fi[Bb]rst [C]or l[F]ast
Come join me i[C]n this to[F]ast

Because the [C]old black rum's got a [F]hold of me
Like a [F]dog wrapped ro[Bb]und my l[C]eg
And the o[C]ld black rum's got a h[F]old of me
Well I'm h[F]ere for ano[C]ther d[F]ay, [Bb]Hey
Well I'm h[F]ere for ano[C]ther d[F]ay

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 her 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 boys I'm joining in


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