Poison Whisky Lyrics

Artist: Lynyrd Skynyrd
Album: Endangered Species

(Ed King - Ronnie VanZant)

Daddy was a Cajun, 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, won't you check his head?"
The only thing that was wrong with him
Was Johnny Walker's Red
He drank ole poison whisky
'Til it killed him dead.

It happened back in the bayou many years ago
Satan came to take him and he did it real slow
Well, they rushed him back to see the doctor
The doctor just shook his head,
"Twenty years of rotgut whisky
Done killed the poor man dead."
He drank ole poison whisky
'Til it killed him dead.

Take a tip from me, people... brothers 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 shake his head.
The only thing he's gonna tell ya
"Stop drinkin' Johnny Walker's Red
Don't drink poison whisky, don't you drink it boy.
