Well about this time every night
I get my whiskey and I get it right
Some of the saddest times you will ever know
Before too long you won't feel so alone

My Daddy was a boatman too
Living his life on the ocean blue
but we haven't seen him since my eighth birthday
He pulled up that anchor and he sailed away

My Momma tried to raise me good
Teachin' me the things that she thought she should
but the women have ruined my mind
So the drinking helps me pass the time

Oh Rye Whiskey oh I
Oh Rye Whiskey I cry

All the beautiful girls they have gone away
With a handsome man and job that pays
but I'm right down on that lost highway
I'll never make it out this world today

Well everybody is beggin but nobody's saying please
they keep the honest man down upon his knees
well I'll drink to those and I will drink to these
may Whiskey fill the seven seas

They might find here on judgement day
I hope I am dry but I can't say
there is just one more think I am sure I know
I'll have one last glass before I go

Rye Whiskey oh I
Rye Whiskey I cry
