It happened back in the bayou
baby many years ago
Satan came to take him and he did it real slow
Well, they rushed him down to see the doctor
The doctor just shook his head,
"Twenty years of rotgut whisky
Done killed this poor man dead."
He drank ol' bootleg whisky
And it killed him dead.
Take a tip from me, people...
brother can't you see
Ain't no future in ole poison whisky.
They're gonna rush you down to see the doctor,
The doctor's gonna check your head.
The only thing he's gonna tell ya
"Stop drinkin' Uncle Johnny's Red
Don't drink poison whisky, don't you drink it boy
