The Ol' Black Rum  Great Big Sea

[G]I drank 16 do[D]ubles for the p[G]rice of one
[C]Tryin to find the courage to t[D]alk to one
I asked her [C]for a [G]dance, no[C]t a sec[G]ond glance
My night had just [D]begun
[G]Well I'd drink to the fa[D]ther or the h[G]oly ghost
[C]Kneeling at the alter of my nightly p[D]ost
And I[C]'ll ra[G]ise a glass, [C]not the[G] first or last
come join me in this to[D]ast
'Cause the Ol' blac[D]k rum's got a hold on [G]me
Like a [C]dog wrapped 'round[D] my leg
And the [D]Ol' black rum's got a [G]hold on me
Will I [C]live [D]for a[Em]nothe[C]r day..hey?
Will[C] I live f[D]or ano[G]ther day?
The qu[G]een of Geor[D]ge Street just [G]went walkin' on by
Walkin' on by[C] with some guy who don't[D]care                                                
That [C]she stood [G]in line [C]since h[G]alf past nine
And spent three hours on her ha[D]ir
[G]Her friend [D]is lookin' at m[G]e with an evil grin
[C]I think a bloody racket might soon b[D]egin
[C]I must have said so[G]mething to t[C]he George [G]Street queen
Now the boys are joining [D]in.
[G]So I drank a[D]ll of my money [G]and I slept out in the rain
[C]Every day is different, but the nights are all th[D]e same
You n[C]ever see t[G]he sun o[C]n the o[G]ld black rum
And I know I'm gonna do it ag[D]ain.
