Recorded by The Sons Of The Pioneers
Words and music by Tim Spencer

CHORUS

[G] Cigareettes and Whusky and [C] Wild, Wild [G] Women
They'll drive you crazy; They'll [A] drive you in-[D] sane [A] [D]
Ciga-[G] reettes and Whusky and [C] Wild, Wild [G] Women
They'll drive you crazy; They'll [D] drive you in-[G] sane.

[G] Once I was happy and [C] had a good [G] wife ...
I had enough money to [A] last me for [D] life [A] [D]
I [G] met with a gal and we [C] went on a [G] spree ...
She started me smokin' and [D] drinkin' whus-[G] key.

CHORUS

Now I am feeble and broken with age
The lines on my face make a well-written page
I'm leavin this message; how sad but how true
On women and whuskey and what they can do.

CHORUS

Write on the cross at the head of my grave
For women and whuskey here lies a poor slave
Take warning dear stranger, take warning dear friend
Then write in big letters these words at the end.

CHORUS
