lyrics

If you find yourself in the need of a drink,
But not the kind you get from the sink.
There’s just one man who leads the case
Who leads you to the soggy state
He’s cold as ice and rough as the taste
Of that clear moonshine sitting at your place
Rusty eyed and dressed in the black
In the only damn place he goes.

It pays to know Old Man Jack,
He’ll be sitting at the counter at the whiskey shack,
Oh he’s a friend of a friend of mine.
But why?
Cause if you know Old Man Jack,
You’ll be sipping fine whiskey ‘til the sun comes back.
But if you don’t, but if you don’t
Buddy you’re staying dry.

Gimme some water.
I gotta go home now.
You’ve gotta call me a cab.
I gotta go to my girlfriend’s house.
She’s gonna be a mighty mad.
I’m gonna have to deal with that.
I gotta go right now.

It pays to know Old Man Jack,
He’ll be sitting at the counter at the whiskey shack,
Oh he’s a friend of a friend of mine.
But why?
Cause if you know Old Man Jack,
You’ll be sipping fine whiskey ‘til the sun comes back.
But if you don’t, but if you don’t
Buddy you’re staying,
Buddy you're staying dry.
