Prohibition Blues Lyrics
sleep night or day.
A terrible feelin' that comes along when the kick it
begins to get away.
…poison and a mixture or two. They call it sugar of
If you drink bootleg 'shine, you'll sure have an achin'
2. Did you ever wake up on a Sunday morn with snakes
all around your bed?
I know you have. I have, too. I know I'd rather be
The preacher comes around and gives advice, and then
you have to stall.
But if he gets to the bottle first, you know, he'll
never leave you none at all.
3. I tell you, brother, and I won't lie, what's the

call it society,
But if they catch you with a pint, good mornin'
4. Well, prohibition* has killed more folks than

cocaine, and morphine.
This ol' country it sure ain't dry, and dry will never
Prohibition* is just a scheme, a fine money-makin'
5. Carbolic acid and creosote ought to kill any man.
Some get paralyzed, some get well, some hit the Golden
The undertaker has got to live. Beat him if you can.
Prohibition*, say it again, is a money-makin' fine
