A Liquor Never Brewed
Gm There was a knockin' at my door Cm Gm It's the dreaded landlord Cm Gm Dm Gm He wants his rent and wants it now, he is careless how Eb Bb Cm Dm Cm He left us in a vacant daze, asking how we got here. Gm Dm Am Gm And we retired to slumber but, the glasses never were rinsed. Gm There was a tappin' on my back Cm Gm It's the dreaded foreman Cm Gm Dm Gm I think I see a smile through his teeth and his cigar Eb Bb Cm Dm Cm He put my hands to work otherwise do nothin' Gm Dm Am Gm And I made a thousand things today, I'm sure I'll never use. Gm There was a ringin' on my phone Cm Gm Dm Gm I picked it up to answer, they said they were my comrade. Eb Bb But they couldn't say my name Eb Bb So I asked them about the sun and moon Cm Dm Cm And what their thoughts on time were Gm Dm Am Gm They hung it up in madness and went on to punch the clock Cm Gm And somewhere there's a sound of someone singing Dm Gm I got an invitation once to liberty Eb Gm They had a mischief brew but, not goblets were used Am Am Bb Am Besting rum or porter 'tis a liquor never brewed. Never brewed... Gm Gm Cm Gm Cm Gm Dm Gm Na na na... Gm There was a knockin' at my door Cm Gm It's the dreaded policemen Dm Gm He had a ticket to enter signed by fools of Sanford laws Eb Bb Cm Dm Cm And he questioned me on politics and scored my generation Gm Dm Am Gm For not respecting elders and lands authority Gm When the landlord came to knock, Cm Gm I said "Come back tomorrow Cm Gm Bb There's more life I'll be living than just slaving for your wage Eb Bb And to the troop and foreman. Eb Bb Am Make yourself the things I don't use. Gm Dm Am Gm For I'm off into the forest for a liquor never brewed!" Cm Gm And somewhere there's a sound of someone singing Dm Gm I got an invitation once to liberty Eb Gm They had a mischief brew but, not goblets were used Am Am Bb Am Besting rum or porter 'tis a liquor never brewed.
