***END OF SONG***


Lyrics:

(Verse 1)

Daddy was a cajun, baby, rasied on southern land
And so my kinfolks tell me, was a street fightin' man
Well, they rushed him down to see the doctor
"Hey doctor, won't you check his head?"
The only thing that was wrong with him was Johnny Walker's Red
He drank ole poison whiskey till it killed him dead

(Verse 2)

It happened back in the bayou many years ago
Satan came to take him and he did it real slow
Well, they rushed him back to see the doctor
The doctor just shook his head 
"Twenty years of rotgut whiskey done killed this poor man dead"
He drank ole poison whiskey till it killed him dead

(Verse 3)

Take a tip from me people, brothers, can't you see?
Ain't no future in ole poison whiskey
They're gonna rush you down to see the doctor 
The doctor's gonna check your head
The only thing he's gonna tel ya,
"Stop drinking Johnny Walker's Red"
Don't drink poison whiskey, don't you drink it, boy

About the artist behind Poison Whiskey Tab:

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.
