Whiskey Deaf Whiskey Blind

Wish I was down in Florida Florida on the hog
Stead of way up in old Georgia boys treated like a dog
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

Seaboard train a rollin down that iron seaboard line
Catch ‘er for Dunnellon gonna ease my worried mind
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

Way down on the corner see the big parade go by
Wish I’s in the brass band marchin to the sky
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

All around this country what you think I see
Whiskey dope and women boys done made a wreck of me
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

I cannot stand the government I cannot stand the law
I cannot stand these dark days comin’ on us all
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

Way down at the railroad just walking on the ties
If Buella lands in Florida boys I’ll never say goodbye
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

If I die a roamin in some distant land
you can take me to the graveyard down in alabam’
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

You can take my banjo and hang it by the door
Way down in sunny dixie well I won’t need it no more
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind

It’s fare ye well darlin way on down the line
Fare ye well forever and the songs of Auld Lang Syne
Whiskey deaf and whiskey blind
