Poison Whiskey

(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 whiskey

'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 whiskey

Done killed the poor man dead."

He drank ole poison whiskey

'Til it killed him dead.


Take a tip from me, people... brothers can't you see

Ain't no future in ole poison whiskey.

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 whiskey, don't you drink it boy.
