ALCOHOL OF FAME (M. Thomas) Stonewall Jackson - 1979 I used to be a big man, I owned most all this town And I was well respected by folks for miles around Then I turned to the bottle, lost my home, destroyed my name My drinkin' friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame Tonight there'll be no laughter when I tell them how I feel But a man must make his mark in life, no matter how I feel For tonight I'll be rewarded for my failure and my shame My drinkin' friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame (Instrumental Break) Tonight I'll dress, I'll go downtown to a barroom on skid row My friends will take me by the hands when I reach those swingin' doors I'll be the guest of honour when they immortalise my name My drinkin' friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame Tonight there'll be no laughter when I tell them how I feel But a man must make his mark in life, no matter how I feel For tonight I'll be rewarded for my failure and my shame My drinkin' friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame My drinkin' friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
