This CAN be played on an acoustic, as that is all I play. You need to put 
some extra punch in the strum and hit the bass string with emphasis!

Poison Whiskey  (from the boxed set)
Lynyrd Skynyrd

Daddy was a cajun babe
Raised on Southern land
Some'uv of my kin folk tell me 
Was a street fightin' man

Well they rush him down to see the doctor
Hey! Doctor check his head
The only thing that was wrong with him was Uncle Johnny's Red
He drank ol' bootleg whiskey
Until it killed him dead

Happened back in the bayou baby
Many year ago.
Satan came to take him 
And did it real slow

Well they rushed him down to see the doctor
The Doctor just shook his head
20 years of rot gut whiskey done killed this poor man dead
He drank ol' bootleg whiskey
And it killed him dead


Take a tip from me people
Brother, cain't ya see
Ain't no future in no poison whiskey
    They goin' to rush you down to see the Doctor
    The Doctor goin' to check your head
    The only thing he's goin' to tell you baby
    Stop drinking Johnny Walker's Red

Don't drink poison whiskey
C                  G
Don't you drink it boy

About the artist behind Poison Whiskey:

Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced /ˌlɛnɚdˈskɪnɝd/,Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd) is an American Southern rock band. The band became prominent in the Southern United States in 1973, and rose to worldwide recognition before several members, including lead vocalist and primary songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, were killed in a plane crash in 1977 near McComb, Mississippi. A tribute band was formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie's younger brother, at the helm, and continues to record music today.

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006, with members Gary Rossington and Billy Powell, former members Ed King, Bob Burns, and Artimus Pyle, and deceased members Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, and Leon Wilkeson.
