Here are the uke chords which also work well for the guitar, for me anyway. I haven't heard the KT do it in so long I don't remember the intro and don't play it. You can download it as a PDF.

SCOTCH AND SODA (DT Lyrics)

Scotch and soda, mud in your eye
Baby, do I feel high
O me o my, do I feel high

Dry martini, jigger of gin
O what a spell you got me in
O my, do I feel high

People won't believe me
They'll think that I'm just braggin
That I could feel the way I do
And still be on the wagon

All I need is one of your smiles
Sunshine of your eye
Do I feel higher than a kite can fly
Give me loving, Baby, I feel high




SCOTCH AND SODA (what I hear in italics)

Scotch and soda, mud in your eye
Baby, do I feel high
O me o my, do I feel high

Dry martini, jigger of gin
O what a spell you've got me in
O my, do I feel high

People won't believe me
They'll think that I'm just braggin'
But (unsure) I could feel the way I do*
And still be on the wagon

All I need is one of your smiles
Sunshine of your eye
O me o my, do I feel higher than a kite can fly
Give me loving, Baby, I feel high

Repeat from "People won't believe..."

*I sing: But I couldn't feel the way I do..

Joe, I agree with the lyrics that you hear, including the "But". Perhaps this is a case where the lyrics as published differ from the lyrics as performed.

We have Dave Guard listed as songwriter. Is that correct?

Given Scotch and Soda and She Was too Good to Me I imagine Bob Shane could have had a pretty good career as a lounge singer, if he wanted to.

Here's the source Wikipedia gives: lazyka.com. My impression is that the blurbs below are verbatim clips from the liner notes of various releases.

THE CAPITOL COLLECTORS SERIES:
"Scotch And Soda" is actually from the group's first LP, "The Kingston Trio," though for some reason it was not released as a single until four years after the album came out, on April 9, 1962. The song has a history all its own: In 1954 Bob Shane and Dave Guard went to Fresno for Easter to Visit Dave's girlfriend, Katie Seaver. Katie turned out not to be at home, but her parents and 11-year-old brother entertained the boys. Mrs. Seaver played piano while her husband sang a song from their honeymoon in 1934. Four years later, Dave revised the tune for the Trio, and Bob sang it. It was subsequently covered by The Manhattan Transfer on their 1976 album, Coming Out. (And Katie's little brother grew up to be baseball great Tom Seaver.)

THE CAPITOL YEARS set:
Master #18389A added to the Capitol archives December 14, 1958
Previously unreleased
Now considered the ultimate saloon song, "Scotch And Soda" was already an oldie when Dave and Bob first heard it In 1953. They were on a pre-Trio double date and Dave's dates parents {whose most famous offspring became baseball great Tom Seaver) played them a memorable song they'd heard at a hotel piano lounge on their honeymoon. When the time came to record the Trio's first album, Dave worked up an arrangement for Bob's solo. After nearly five years of pleas from DJs, Capitol released "Scotch and Soda" as a single In 1962. The version Included here is the earliest known live recording of the song, another previously unreleased selection from the STEREO CONCERT tapes. Today "Scotch And Soda" is still Bob's favorite Trio tune and the identity of the original composer still remains a mystery.

THE KINGSTON TRIO: THEIR GREATEST HITS AND FINEST PERFORMANCES
Rarely did a Trio member have a whole solo, but this memorable ballad spotlights Bob Shane's grainy voice. "Scotch and Soda," written by Trio member Dave Guard, came from their first LP, The Kingston Trio (1958), but Capitol waited four years to release it as a single. Although it climbed no higher than No. 81, the song has always been a big favorite of Trio fans, including The Manhattan Transfer, who sang it on their 1976 LP Coming Out.
