Lyrics

VERSE (*whiskey*)
  Oh, show *me/us/us* the way to the next *whiskey* bar
  Oh, don't ask why
  *No/Oh/No*, don't ask why
  For we must find *the/our/the* next *whiskey* bar
  Or if we don't find *the/our/the* next *whiskey* bar
  I tell you we must die
  I tell you we must die
  I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die

CHORUS (*whiskey*)
  Oh, Moon of Alabama,
  it's time to say good-bye
  We've lost our good ol' mama,
  and must have *whiskey*, oh, you know why

CHORUS (*whiskey*)

VERSE (*little dollar*)

CHORUS (*dollar*)
CHORUS (*dollar*)

VERSE (*little girl*)
CHORUS (*little girl*)

Oh, Moon of Alabama
it's time to say auf Wiedersehen 
We've lost our good ol' mama
and must have little girl, oh, you know why
You know why
You know why
