Poison Whisky - Ed King, Ronnie VanZant
    Daddy was a Cajun babe, raised on Southern land

    And so my kinfolks tell me, was a street-fightin' man.
    Well, they rushed him down to see the doctor
    "Hey doctor, check his head?"
    The only thing that was wrong with him
    Was ol' Uncle Johnny's Red
    He drank ole bootleg whisky
    Until it killed him dead.

    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
