Rory Gallagher – Barley And Grape Rag lyrics

Well don't care if I get arrested
Cause tonight they'll need more than a ball and chain
I don't care whose interested,
I'm coming into town just the same
I've been alone, I've been feeling blue,
I think I need a little drink or two,
Be my friend, tell me where the place is
Where the whiskey flows and the dices roll till dawn?
My baby's done me wrong you must have guessed it,
My heart's slow I think it must be told
That I don't want ot know where East or West is
Cause pretty soon I won't feel the cold.
When I'm walking down mainstreet, feeling no pain
Along comes a cop, he can take my name
And explain to me what a federal case is,
I'm mixing the barley with the grape again
Bright city lights, make me feel alright,
I'm right or wrong and tomorrow never comes.
I don't care if I get investigated
And the city fathers they all black my name.
I'm pretty sure you can smell the traces,
For tomorrow morning, I'll take all the blame.
I've been feeling bad and feeling blue
I think I need a little whiskey or two,
God, brother, you look like you could do with it too
(That's true)
Tonight I'll sleep on a walking-cane
I don't care if I get arrested
Cause tonight they'll need more than a ball and chain.
I don't care whose interested,
I'm coming into town just the same
I've been feeling alone and I've been feeling blue.
I think I need a little drink or two.
Be my friend, tell me where the place is
Where the whiskey flows and the dices roll till dawn
