Corn Whiskey - The Brodys [43:14 on the mix]

And we’re drinking corn whiskey tonight...

G C G
We drink corn whiskey in the midday sun.
G D
We pass round the jar till the last swig is gone.
G C G
Be us winners or losers we share in the toast
G D C G
When we drink corn whiskey, we boast & we boast:
G D C G
When it comes to corn whiskey, I drink the most.

We drink corn whiskey when a moon she does rise,
We’re singing our tune with a tear in our eyes.
Till the fire burns down & the silence is thick.
Then we pass round the jar for our last little sip.
And we don’t give a damn when we’re totally pissed.

C D G

Yes, & we’ll all sit around the fire.

C D G

And we’ll all get higher & higher.

C D G emin

And we’ll brag about who’s the biggest damn liar.

C D C G

We’re drinking corn whiskey tonight, tonight.

G D C G

Yes, we’re drinking corn whiskey tonight.


When a morning dew covers the grass in the fields,
And the wee dance of smoke the fire does yield.
We’ll crawl from our slumbers with a squint in our eyes,
Cause we’re drinking corn whiskey in our paradise.
Yeah, we’re drinking corn whiskey till the day that we die.

Yes, & we’ll all sit around the fire, &c...


We raise up corn whiskey till all of our mates,
To the ones that we’ve hooked but somehow got away.
From the brogue next to you & the ones in our hearts,
We remember you fondly, of us you’re a part.
And we’ll save you a swallow from the bottom of the jar.

Yes, & we’ll all sit around the fire, &c...


Yes, & we’ll all sit around the fire, &c...

Great song, but you need a better background. Your face is washed out with such a bright window behind you.
