Well I saw this song on the web but 
cannot seem to find it again and 
besides it was not transcribed with the 
chords that I use, so here it is.

[G]Dooley was a [C]good old man
He [G]lived below the [D]mill
[G[Dooley had two [C]daughters 
And A [G]Forty [D]Gallon [G]still
One girl watched the [C]boiler
The [G]other weatched the [D]spout
[G]Mama corks the [C]bottles
When old [D]Dooley sets them [G]out

[G]Dooley, steppin' up a holler[C]
Dooley, tryin' to make a dollar[G]
Dooley, gimme a swaller[D]
And I'll pay you back some[G]day

The revenooers came back one day
a-slippin' through the woods
Dooley kept behind them all
And never lost his goods
Dooley was a trader when into town he'd come
Sugar by the bushel and molasses by the tun


I remember very well the day old Dooley died
The women all felt sorry and 
The men sat sround and cried
Now Dooleys on that mountain he lies there all alone
They put a jug beside 'im and a barrel for a stone

Thanks for the post! A little info though: Dooley isn't a Porter Wagoner song nor is it old enough to be a "Traditional". It was written by the Dillards (best known as The Andy Griffith Show's "Darlin Family" minus Denver Pyle and whoever played Charlene. The song was done in the early 1960s. NOT "traditional". I only make the correction because I miss the Dillards and want everyone to know who they are. :)

two minor corrections: the revenuers came one day. not came "back" one day.
And it's molasses by the DRUM not ton. Thanks again for the post. I love seeing The Dillards music getting spread around :)
