Rye Whiskey Lyrics

Rye Whiskey - Tex Ritter

Jack o' Diamonds

Jack o' Diamonds and I know you of old

 

You've robbed my poor pockets of silver and gold

 

It's a whiskey you villain

You've been my downfall

 

You've kicked me you've cuffed me

But I love you for all

It's a whiskey rye whiskey rye whiskey I cry

 

If I don't get rye whiskey well I think I will die

 

I'll eat when I'm hungry

I'll drink when I'm dry

 

If the hard times don't kill me

 

I'll lay down and die

I'll tune up my fiddle and

I 'll rosin my bow

I'll make myself welcome wherever I go

 

Rye whiskey rye whiskey rye whiskey I cry

 

If a tree don't fall on me I'll live till I die

 

If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck

 

I'd dive to the bottom

 

To get one sweet suck

 

But the ocean ain't

Whiskey and I ain't a duck

 

So we'll round up the cattle

And then we'll get drunk

 

Rye whiskey rye whiskey rye whiskey I cry

If the whiskey don't kill me I'll live till I die
