[Intro]
C  Em  D  G
C  Em  D

[Verse 1]
      G              C            G           D
In an old folks home just off the well beaten path
  Em       C           D            C
I visit my grandma and learn of our past
    G        C               D             Em
One day as I walked down the hall I passed by
   A                         D
An old man with tears in his eyes

     G              C          G          D
At a glance I could see he was gentle and sweet
  Em               C          D           C
I straightened his pillow and covered his feet
         G               C          D           Em
Then the old man reached out softly touching my hand
   C                D           G    C
He smiled and these few words began

[Chorus]
     G               C            G            D
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die
        Em           C                D           G
I could see it meant something by the look in his eyes
    G            C           D            Em
The old man just lay there repeating that line
     C               G            D            G
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die

[Interlude]
C  Em  D

[Verse 2]
          G         C            G            D
Then they told me a story that’s sad but it’s true
   Em          C         D                 C
Of how he’d no family or friends that they knew
      G        C             D            Em
In an old army jacket on the outskirts of town
A                          D
That’s how the old man was found

     G             C            G             D
They thought him a drunkard who just lost his mind
       Em           C              D             C
‘Cause all he would say were these words all the time
     G                C          D          Em
They brought him here ten years ago to this day
C             D             G
Still all the old man would say

[Chorus]
     G               C            G            D
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die
        Em           C                D           G
I could see it meant something by the look in his eye
    G            C           D            Em
The old man just lay there repeating that line
     C               G            D            G
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die

[Interlude]
C  Em  D
G  C  Em  D

[Verse 3]
       G             C            G         D
When I walked in the room grandma instantly knew
    Em           C               D         C
She said my dear boy what’s been bothering you
     G            C            D          Em
So I told her the story of the man I just met
A                         D
Grandma looked up and she said

[Bridge]
     G               C                G          D
If I don’t drink rye whiskey were the words to a song
  C              D       C
I sang back when I was a kid
       G         C          D               Em
And it told of a solder who made it through war
    C             D             G
And found out his true love was dead

[Chorus]
     G               C            G            D
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die
  Em            C                D           G
I knew it meant something by the look in his eyes
      G            C            D              Em
Now I know why the old man just laid there and cried
     C               G            D            G
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die
    G               C              D           Em
His heart was still breaking after all of this time
     C               G            D            G    D   G
If I don’t drink rye whiskey, rye whiskey I’ll die
