Capo 2


        D                       A        D
I drank sixteen doubles for the price of one
G                  D           E	A
Trying to find the courage to talk to one
            G  A   D          G A      D
I asked her for a dance, not a second glance
                  A
My night had just begun

	D			    A    D
Well I drink to the Father or the Holy Ghost
G		      D	          E	 A
I'm kneeling at the altar of my nightly post
           G   A   D  	           G  A   D
So I'll raise the glass, not the first or last
	      A	       D
Come join me in this toast


Chorus
            A                     D
Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
       D             G      A
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
         A                     D
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
          D          A     D   G
Well I'm here for another day, Hey
          D          A     D
Well I'm here for another day

         D                             A          D
Well the queen of George Street just a walking on by.
G                   D               E A
Walking on by with some guy who don't care
         G     A  D          G    A    D
That she stood in line since half past nine.
                             A
And spent three hours on her hair....on her hair

         D                               A    D
Well her friend is looking at me with an evil grin
G                  D             E  A
I think the bloody racket might soon begin
            G    A   D            G      A      D
I must have said something to the George Street queen
    A                D
and boys I'm joining in

Chorus
            A                     D
Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
       D             G      A
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
         A                     D
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
          D          A     D   G
Well I'm here for another day, Hey
          D          A     D
Well I'm here for another day

     D                                     A      D
So I drank all of my money and I slept out in the rain
G                      D                 E A
Every day is different but the night are all the same
          G   A   D          G   A     D
You never see the sun on the old black rum
                 A              D
But you know I'm gonna do it again

Chorus
            A                     D
Because the old black rum's got a hold of me
       D             G      A
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
         A                     D
And the old black rum's got a hold of me
          D          A     D   G
Well I'm here for another day, Hey
          D          A     D
Well I'm here for another day
