based on the version Tommy Jarrell played. Played on my fretless 6 string banjo (tuned aAAEAC#) and my fiddle.


If the river was whiskey
and I was a duck
I'd dive to the bottom
and never come up
But the river ain't whiskey
and I ain't no duck
Let's play the drunkard's hiccups
and sip from my jug

I'll eat when I'm hungry
and drink when I'm dry
get to feelin much better
I might sprout wings and fly
I'll take down my fiddle
and rosin up my bow
I'll make myself welcome
where ever I go

corn whiskey, pretty women
have been my downfall
they kicked me and broke me
but i love them through all
My shoes are all worn
my toes stickin out
if I don't get some whiskey
I'm goin up the spout

I've played cards in England
I've gambled in Spain
goin down to Carolina
for to play my last game
Jack o Diamonds, Jack o Diamonds
I know you from old
You've robbed my poor pockets
of silver and gold
