Sally, Where'd You Get Your Liquor From?

This song is by Reverend Gary Davis and appears on the album From Blues to Gospel (1971).

Old man Peter was a mighty man Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Combed his head in a frying pan, Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Washed his face in a wagon wheel, Where'd you get that liquor from?
Man downtown
Died with a toothache in his heel Where'd you get that liquor from?
Man downtown

Sally, where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Sally, where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
All your good for, woman, is to get drunk and clown
Sally, where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown

Sally you just ain't no doggone good
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
I would get rid of you Sally, if I could
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
The old mule kicked, the old cow pranced
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Old sow whistled while the little pig danced
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown

I come in one evening about half past four
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Sally done got my food and strown it all over the floor
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
There's one thing Sally I'm just going to do
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
I'm going to get me a woman treat me better than you
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown

Sally went up on the hill with a glass in her hand
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Trying to find another drunk so she can come
Back and raise some more sand
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown

You ain't worth the salt that goes in your bread
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Ain't worth a pound of lead takes to keep you dead
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
One of these days I'll tell you what I'm going to do
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
I'm going to get me another woman to do me
Right and get rid of you
Where' d you get your liquor from?
Man downtown

Never seen a bottle like this before
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
He baptized a bullfrog in '54
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
I would get your liquor just any old day
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
These good looking women don't let me pray
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown

Old mule and old cow pranced
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Old sow whistled while the little pig danced
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
Bullfrog jumped on the pulpit stand
Where'd you get your liquor from?
Man downtown
He preached the gospel like a natural man
