Lyrics: One bourbon, One Scotch, and one beer. One Bourbon, One Scotch, and one beer. Hey mister bartender come in here! I want another drink and I want it now. My baby she's gone, she's been gone tonight, I aint's seen my baby since the night before last. One bourbon, one scotch and one beer. Spoken: And then I sat there, gettin high, mellow, knocked out, feelin good. And by that time, I looked on the wall, at the old clock on the wall. By that time it was 10:30. I looked down at the bar, at the bartender. He said, "What do you want Johnny?" Sung: One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. Well my baby's gone, she's been gone tonight. I ain't seen my baby since the night before last. I wanna get drunk, get her off of my mind. One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. Spoken: And I saty there, getting high, stoned, knocked out, And by that time, I looked on the wall, At the old clock, and by that time, It was a quarter to two: Last call for alcohol. I said, "Hey Mr. Bartender" "What do you want" Sung: One bourbon, one scotch and one beer.
