Lyrics[edit]

   Show me the way
   To the next whiskey bar
   Oh, don't ask why
   Oh, don't ask why
   
   Show me the way
   To the next whiskey bar
   Oh, don't ask why
   Oh, don't ask why
   
   If we don't find
   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
   
   Oh, moon of Alabama
   Now we say goodbye
   We've lost our dear old mama
   Oh, now have whiskey, oh, you know why?
   
   Oh, moon of Alabama
   Now we say goodbye
   We've lost our dear old mama
   Oh, now have whiskey, oh, you know why?
   
   Show me the way
   To the next little girl
   Oh, don't ask why
   Oh, don't ask why
   
   Show me the way
   To the next little boy
   Oh, don't ask why
   Oh, don't ask why
   
   For if we don't find
   The next little girl
   I tell you we must die
   I tell you we must die
   I tell you, I'll tell you
   I tell you we must die
   
   Oh, moon of Alabama
   Now we say goodbye
   We've lost our dear old mama
   Oh, now have whiskey, oh, you know why?
   
   Oh, moon
   Now we say goodbye
   We've lost our dear old mama
   Oh, must have whiskey, oh, you know why?
