Lyrics:

Now you’s a whiskey headed woman
Now an you stay drunk all the time
Now you’s a whiskey headed woman
Now an you stay drunk all the time
Now if you don’t stop drinkin’
Now I believe you goin’ to lose yo mind

Well now ev’ry time I see
You’s at some whiskey joint
(Yeah!)
Standin’ out the back do’
Askin’ fer another half-a-pint

‘Cause you’s a whiskey headed woman
Now an you stay drunk all the time
Now if you don’t stop drinkin’
(What?)
I believe you goin’ to go stone blind

Well now an I tooks you outta the street, baby
When you didn’t have no place to stay
You ain’t actin’ nothin’ but a fool
Doggin’ me ’round this-a-way

‘Cause you’s a whiskey headed woman
Now an you stay drunk all the time
Now if you don’t stop drinkin’
I believe you goin’ to lose yo mind

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well now, ev’rytime I meet you, baby
You walkin’ up an down the street
(Yeah!)
Grinnin’, laughin’ an talkin’
With most ev’ry man you meet

‘Cause you’s a whiskey headed woman
Now an you stay drunk all the time
Now an if you don’t stop drinkin’
I believe you goin’ to lose yo mind.
