ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

I cheated just to get on by

Yeah cheated just to get on by

If I can't save my sinning

ways Gonna keep on getting

high I'm sleepin' off a

weekend drunk Sleepin' off the

weekend drunk When I'm awake,

I'm looking back At all the

ships I sunk Two fingers of

whiskey Good old-fashioned rye

Wish I were bound for glory

And prohibition dry Two

fingers of whiskey That is all

I need To keep drownin' the

devil Livin' in me, livin' in

me I'm hangin' on the hook of

the moon Hangin' on that

crescent moon If I don't get

out of this bottle Lord you're

gonna see me soon Just like a

dog I wanna howl Like an old

dog I wanna howl Used up all

of my aces Who is gonna save

me now Two fingers of whiskey

Good old-fashioned rye Wish I

were bound for glory And

prohibition dry Two fingers of

whiskey That is all I need To

keep drownin' the devil Livin'

in me, livin' in me Two

fingers of whiskey Good

old-fashioned rye Wish I were

bound for glory And

prohibition dry Two fingers of

whiskey That is all I need To

keep drownin' the devil Livin'

in me, livin' in me, livin' in

me
