Bay Rum Blues-David McCarn (Dave & Howard)
C position, standard tuning w/harmonica off a rack and Howard Long, back-up vocals

I got the Bay Rum Blues, I've had them times before
I got the Bay Rum Blues, I'm longing for the ten-cent store
Any old time I can rake up a dime, I'm goin' back and get some more
REFRAIN: I got the Bay-ay Rum Blues
And when I get in jail, there's no one to come and bring me a bottle of old bay rum
There's no use trying, for I can't lose them long, tall, Bay Rum Blues
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

Now some call it bay rum and some call it bay hoss
Some get a dozen bottles and some get it by the gross
So when I drink a dime bottle, I foam at the mouth like a hoss
REFRAIN: I got the Bay-ay Rum Blues
And when I get thirsty there's no one to thank, for giving me a dime so I can drink
There's no use trying, for I can't lose them long, tall, slim-neck Bay Rum Blues
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

For when you can't get liquor and you can't get no gin
Don't get disgusted, for you have a chance to win
Get a long, goose-necked bottle, and you'll never be sober again
REFRAIN: I got the Bay-ay Rum Blues
Now some use bay rum just for a tonic, but take it from me, it's best for your stomach
There's no use trying, for I can't lose them long, tall, slim-neck Bay Rum Blues
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

Now, Uncle Sam has taken our liquor away from us
When we make home brew, he raises an awful fuss
We're all afraid of the ginger, but we drink bay rum or bust
REFRAIN: We got the Bay-ay Rum Blues
There's no use stopping us anymore, so you'd better look out, Mr. 10-Cent Store
There's no use trying, for I can't lose them long, tall, good ol' goose-necked Bay Rum Blues
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
