Toby Keith – Rum Is The Reason lyrics

[Verse 1]
I heard Davey Crockett had a pint in his pocket
Good whiskey at the Alamo
Now that Pancho Villia, had a jug of Tequila when he walked the streets of old Mexico
While Blackbeard was fleecing around the hurricane season, he didn’t quit because of a girl
Yeah, rum is the reason pirates never ruled the world

[Verse 2]
While Russia was brawling, I bet that Old Stalin was calling for a vodka martini
While the world waited in fear, Old Hitler drank beer from a stein, eating sauerkraut and weenies
Yeah, down through the ages, as they turned their pages, they couldn’t drink their diamonds and pearls
No, rum is the reason pirates never ruled the world

[Verse 3]
I ain’t getting much done but I’m having fun sailing on the deep blue sea
My whole body goes numb from a bottle of dark rum and the sun sinking down on me
My catch of the day is a tall Cuba libra chased down with a 12 oz curl
Yeah, rum is the reason pirates never ruled the world

[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3]

Take it home coral reefers, haha…
