Tear jerker: "COME HOME FATHER" and "PLEASE DON'T SELL MY DADDY NO MORE WINE".

Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds
I know you from old
You rob my poor pockets of silver and gold
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck
I would dive to the bottom and never come up
But the ocean ain't whiskey and I ain't no duck
So I'll play Jack of Diamonds and count on my luck.
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry
If you don't give me rye whiskey, I know I will die
I eat when I'm hungry and drink when I'm dry
And if moonshine don't kill meI will live 'til I die.


My brother Bill has a still on the hill
He stands 'bout 4'9"
But he thinks he's a giant if you give him half a pint
Of that good old mountain dew
They call it that good old mountain dew dew dew
Them that refuse it are few
But I'll rustle up my mug if you'll fill up my jug
With that good old mountain dew.
