Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Don't Sell Daddy Any More Whisky
I remember hearing this song when I was about 3 or 4 years old and I cryed every time I heard it because the baby was crying.


I walked down the street of an old country town
And passed by an old whiskey store
I saw a little boy,his clothes were so shabby
I stopped and I stood by the door
I want you to listen,for I am repeating
The words that I heard the boy say

cho: Don't sell daddy anymore whiskey
I know it will take him away
We are all hungry and mamma is weeping
Don't sell him no whiskey today

He treats us so good whenever he's sober
And tells us that he loves us so
But a bottle of whiskey drives any man crazy
I'm telling you this cause I know
He beats my mommy and brothers
We have no shoes on our feet
