Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey I cryyy-
If I don't get Rye Whiskey, I surely will die-
If the ocean was Whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd swim to the bottom and never come up-
I'd swim to the bottom and never come up-

Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey I cryyy
If I don't get Rye Whiskey, I surely will die!

I live on Clintch Mountain and Wander Alone,
As drunk as the Devil, so leave me alone
I'm as drunk as the Devil, so leave me alone-

Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey I cryyy
If I don't get Rye Whiskey I surely will die!

I eat when I'm hungry and I drink when I'm dry and
If that tree don't fall on me-
I live til' I die!
If a tree don't fall on me, I live til I die-

Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey I cryyy
If I don't get Rye Whiskey I surely will die
If I don't get Rye Whiskey,,...

I surely will die.
