G chordG D chordD G chordG
I drank sixteen doubles for the price of one
C chordC D chordD
Trying to find the courage to talk to one
C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
I asked her for a dance not a second glance
D chordD
My night had just begun

Well I drink to the Father or the Holy Ghost
I'm kneeling at the altar of my nightly post
So I'll raise the glass not the first or last
Come join me in this toast

D chordD G chordG
Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
C chordC D chordD
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
D chordD G chordG
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
C chordC D chordD Em chordEm C chordC
Well I'm here for another day Hey
C chordC D chordD G chordG
Well I'm here for another day

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

it sounds better if you add a G on the end of the Em for "Another"
