Am E Am E....Am E Am E7 etc...

          Am
Here is a story about a sinner, 

He used to be a winner who enjoyed a life of prominence and 
  E/B
position, 

But the pressures at the office and his socialite engagements, 
                                 Am
And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition, 

A
It turned him to the booze, 

And he got mixed up with a floosie 
                              Dm
And she led him to a life of indecision. 
Am
The floosie made him spend his dole 

She left him lying on Skid Row 
          Am             E7     E7/B Am E7 Am
A drunken lag in some Salvation Army Mission. 

E7 (an introductory arpeggio)
It's such a shame. 

<A Chorus>
Am       Dm11 Dm
Oh demon alcohol,                   
Dm             E7(b9)  E7
Sad memories I cannot recall,     
Am          Dm9  Dm
Who thought I would say, 
E7           Am11    Am
Damn it all, blow it all,

<B Chorus> 
Am       Dm11 Dm
Oh demon alcohol,  
Dm         E7(b9)  E7
Memories I can't   recall, 
Am          Dm9            E7             Am  E7 Am
Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol. 

[Repeat  Instrumental on line 1, Vocals on 2 and 3 as below]

Dm             E7(b9)  E7
Sad memories I can't  recall,     

Am          Dm9            E7             Am  E7 Am
Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol. 

[16 Bars as intro]

Am
Barley wine pink gin,
He'll drink anything, 
                E/B
Port, pernod or tequila, 
Rum, scotch, vodka on the rocks, 
                                Am
As long as all his troubles disappeared. 

A
But he messed up his life when he beat up his wife, 
                                         Dm
And the floosie's gone and found another sucker 
Am
She's gonna turn him on to drink 
She's gonna lead him to the brink 
And when his money's gone, 
       E7        E7/B   Am
She'll leave him in the gutter, 

E7 (ascending roll)
It's such a shame. 

<A Chorus>
Am        Dm11
Oh demon alcohol, 
Dm                    E7(b9)
Sad memories I cannot recall, 
Am          Dm9
Who thought I would fall, 
E7           Am11    Am
Damn it all, blow it all.

[Instrumental on  and the 1st line of  Vocals on Lines 2 and
3, as below]

Dm             E7(b9)  E7
Sad memories I cannot recall,     

Am          Dm9            E7             Am  E7 Am
Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol.
