 "Jakey's Gin" (Trad./Arr. GBS)
   From "Play"(1997)

  an odd song about a St. John's bootlegger, apparently.
  with the chorus of the very similar "Whiskey, You're the Devil"
  tacked on in the coda. Sung by Darrell Power.

  Capo 5th fret.

 Intro: G.....
 
      G                   Cadd9       G
 When I was a young man I was led astray
   Cadd9      G     Cadd9   D    G
 I met with a buddy down in Logy Bay
 G 
 we went out in all weather, 
    Cadd9         G
 we wore out our shoes,
       Cadd9          G          D
 goin' up Kingsbridge road for a drink o' Booze

 CHORUS:
         
           G              Cadd9      G
 Drink her up, boys! it's well after ten
           G              D          G
 Drink her up, boys! it's well after ten

 G F|G F|G...

 some people say that the Pinky is fine
 others will swear by a drop of moonshine
 but as for myself I've a bottle of each
 mixed in with a gallon of dipper and screech

 Chorus

 It's the old shaving lotion thats made me this way
 sweeter than Pepsi and stronger then tea 
 and when in the evening when we're feeling fine
 we stop into Jakey's for icons and 'shine

 Chorus 

 It's the old shaving lotion that's made me this way
 sweeter then pepsi an' stronger than tea
 and when in the morning when I'm feelin' rough
 I curse old Jakey who sold me this stuff

 CHORUS x2....

 "Take a two-four out the door!"


 Da-da-da-da-da-da....

 Ah,whiskey you're the devil, you're leadin' me astray
 over hills and mountains and to Americay
 you're nicer, stronger, decenter, you're spunkier than tea
 oh, whiskey you're me darlin' drunk or sober
