I  DRINK  ALONE


E
I drink alone, yeah with nobody else.
              E9      D9      E 
I drink alone,                yeah with nobody else.
         C                        D                   E
Yeah you know when I drink alone, I don't want nobody else.


E
Now every morning just before breakfast, I don't want no coffee or tea.

Just me and my good "Buddy Weiser", that's all I ever need.
                    E9     D9      E
Cause I drink alone,               yeah with nobody else.
          C                        D                   E
Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself.


E
Well the other day I lay sleeping and I woke from a terrible dream,

so I called up my friend Jack Daniel's and his partner Jimmy Beam
                   E9      D9      E
and we drank alone,                yeah with nobody else.
          C                        D                   E
Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself.


E
Yes the other night I got invited to a party, I stayed home instead.

Me and my pal Johnny Walker and his brothers Blacky and Red.
                   E9      D9      E
And we drank alone,                yeah with nobody else.
          C                        D                   E
Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I don't want nobody else. Yeah

 
Jim - Instrumental 1

E
I got me a pet in my penthouse, he don't bother me.

He ain't no poodle or pony just a little old Wild Turkey
                   E9      D9      E
and we drink alone,                yeah with nobody else.
          C                        D                   E
Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I don't want nobody else.


Jim - Instrumental 2

E
My whole family done give up on me, it don't make me feel to sad.

The only one who'll hang out with me is my dear Old Grand-Dad
                                         E9   D9      E
and we drink alone, yes with nobody else.
          C                        D                   E
Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I don't want nobody else.
          C                        D                   E
Yeah, you know when I drink alone, I don't want nobody else.
          C                        D     E
Yeah                                         I drink alone.



There's a bit more going on in this than is written here as in 
the alternating between the E to E7 and the hammer,
the E9 = XXO43O to D9 = XXO21O to Open = XXOOOO to E then E7
and the fingerings of the C and the D. 

I'd recommend watching George and Jim at play for the nuances -
