Scud Mountain Boys - Van Drunk

Capo III

G
I wasn't happy

...D
to hear you'd been wasted

G
when you made all those

..........D
tv shows

....G
the whiskey and the mouthwash

.......D.................Bm
and Mary's fine underclothes

.......E
can't hide all the trouble

......A
you knew

each night in my parlor
I leaned on my elbows
the ottoman got you again
but that was a dim light
compared to the way you fell
over and over and over

D...........F#m....................G
who was there when you knew for sure

.....E..................G
the world would disappear

D.....................F#m
yeah you were alive

.........G
those snake-littered ?????

........E............G
somehow you made it mine

to reach me there
from a sattelite hung from a pin and nail
yeah I was alive
those snake-littered ?????
somehow I wheezed it by

Bm...........E.................A...........G
the dumb leading the blind to water

Bm..E............A
will I see you there

would you care
if I told of some of the things
I've seen up there
and hey would you mind
if I turned to you
while the blue went screaming by

the blind leading the dumb to water
will I see you there
the damned leading the damned to water
will I see you there

it's out of the question
I won't even mention it
cause I've got no money to burn
so I scan the late night
the scent of his suicide

.....E...............................G......Gm
his breath on pages for you

....D
to return

I've never claimed for my lyrics to be completely correct, but there is probably not a song on here where they are off further than on this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do not have any related information on snake wine; I only have tabs for guitar. It sounds interesting though. What are the snake wine health benefits that you reference on your site?
