Whiskey Ballad
Seasick Steve Lyrics


Ahhhh

(whistling)

To all those people living in their flats not so pristine.
Who look up from the alleyways at the sky that we've both seen.
For some I now they see it from a different point of view.
The red doors painted black the sky is grey not baby blue.

So lighten up have a cup of my happy golden drink
It will taste strong to begin with, but you'll get used to it I think.
It'll wash away your sorrows and soak up your concern.
Only trouble when you wake up... not a single tables turned.

But it's alright.... it's alright.... it's alright....

(whistling)

So if you're a bit unhappy or you're slightly depressed
Just humble on to this song I wrote, relieve some of your stress
Cause when I sing the Chorus there's one thing I know for sure
A nice clean shot of whiskey is my recommended cure

So lighten up have a cup of my happy golden drink
It will taste strong to begin with, but you'll get used to it I think.
It'll wash away your sorrows and soak up your concern.
Only problem when you wake up... not a single tables turned.
But it's alright.... it's alright... it's alright..
It's alright.... It's alright.... it's alright....

So lighten up have a cup of my happy golden drink
It will taste strong to begin with, but you'll get used to it I think.
It'll wash away your sorrows and soak up your concern.
Only problem when you wake up... not a single tables turned.

So lighten up have a cup of my happy golden drink
It will taste strong to begin with but, you'll get used to it I think.
It'll wash away your sorrows and soak up your concern.
Only problem when you wake up... not a single tables turned.

To all those people living in their flats
Not so pristine
Who look up from the alley ways
That skies that we've all seen

But somehow I know that
They see it from a different point of view
The red door's painted black
The sky is gray not baby blue

So lighten up, have a cup
Of my happy golden drink
It'll taste strong to begin with
You'll get used to it, I think

It'll wash away your sorrows
Soak up your concern
Only trouble when you wake up
Not a single tables turn

But it's all right, it's all right, it's all right

So if you're a bit unhappy
Or you're slightly depressed
Just hum along to this song I wrote
Release some of your stress

But when I sing the chorus
There's one thing I know for sure
A nice clean shot of whiskey
Is my recommended cure

So lighten up, have a cup
Of my happy golden drink
It'll taste strong to begin with
You'll get used to it, I think

It'll wash away your sorrows
And soak up your concern
Only problem when you wake up
Not a single tables turn

But it's all right, it's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right

So lighten up, have a cup
Of my happy golden drink
It'll taste strong to begin with
You'll get used to it, I think

It'll wash away your sorrows
And soak up your concern on a problem
When you wake up not a single tables turn

So lighten up, have a cup
Of my happy golden drink
It'll taste strong to begin with
You'll get used to it, I think

It'll wash away your sorrows
And soak up your concern
Only problem when you wake up
Not a single tables turn

I remember listening to this with my dad all the time when I was younger and when he was making stuff in his garage he would listen to you're songs this made me remember good times and memories. My dad died of a brain tumour about a year ago when I heard this I just started crying. Miss you dad ❤
