Corn Liquor

Song Author Buddy Alan Performer: Buck Owens Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Well when I was a little bitty boy
No bigger than an old po[D7]lecat
Well I [G]used to wonder like all kids
What [D7]made this do [G]that

Now I'd seen what happened to my pa
When he take a drink from a [D7]jug   
Yeah he'd [G]start with a smile and then after awhile
He'd be [D7]out on the floor like a [G]rug  

Corn [C]liquor corn [G]liquor
What makes you do what you[D7] do   
Well they [G]feel no pain when you touch their brain
Corn [D7]liquor they love [G]you  


Well now one day in the afternoon
My folks were away for [D7]awhile
Yeah I [G]got the jug down from the shelf
To see [D7]what made 'em [G]smile


Now I slowly sipped and I nearly flipped
That one drink was [D7]enough
For the [G]life of me I just can't see
Why they [D7]love that awful [G]stuff

Now I'd seen what happened to my pa
When he take a drink from a [D7]jug   
Yeah he'd [G]start with a smile and then after awhile
He'd be [D7]out on the floor like a [G]rug  


Well as I grew older I thought about
That first sip that I [D7]had   
Yeah I [G]really burned and soon I learned
It [D7]wasn't all that [G]bad  


Now to ease the pressures of this world
Here's the way I've got it [D7]figured
Well the [G]thing to do for me and you
Is drink [D7]lotsa good corn [G]liquor

Now I'd seen what happened to my pa
When he take a drink from a [D7]jug   
Yeah he'd [G]start with a smile and then after awhile
He'd be [D7]out on the floor like a [G]rug  

Well when I was a little bitty boy
No bigger than an old polecat
Well I used to wonder like all kids
What made this do that

Now I'd seen what happened to my pa
When he take a drink from a jug
Yeah he'd start with a smile and then after awhile
He'd be out on the floor like a rug

Corn liquor corn liquor
What makes you do what you do
Well they feel no pain when you touch their brain
Corn liquor they love you

Well now one day in the afternoon
My folks were away for awhile
Yeah I got the jug down from the shelf
To see what made 'em smile

Now I slowly sipped and I nearly flipped
That one drink was enough
For the life of me I just can't see
Why they love that awful stuff

Now I'd seen what happened to my pa
When he take a drink from a jug
Yeah he'd start with a smile and then after awhile
He'd be out on the floor like a rug

Well as I grew older I thought about
That first sip that I had
Yeah I really burned and soon I learned
It wasn't all that bad

Now to ease the pressures of this world
Here's the way I've got it figured
Well the thing to do for me and you
Is drink lotsa good corn liquor

Now I'd seen what happened to my pa
When he take a drink from a jug
Yeah he'd start with a smile and then after awhile
He'd be out on the floor like a rug
