In eighteen-eighty down a dusty road Along came a miner with a big fat load Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me He was caked in dirt from his head to his foot His hair so black, that it looked like soot Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Have a drink, have a drink, have a drink on me Ev'rybody have a drink on me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Have a drink, have a drink, have a drink on me Ev'rybody have a drink on me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Well, he reined in his mule and hitched him to the rail And he said "Ol' fella it's the end of the trail" Hey, hey, everybody drink on me Well, he ambled on down to the old saloon He said "I know it's early and it ain't quite noon" But, hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Have a drink, have a drink, have a drink on me Ev'rybody have a drink on me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Have a drink, have a drink, have a drink on me Ev'rybody have a drink on me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Well, I just got a letter from down in Tennessee It said my Uncle died and left an oil well to me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me I've been diggin' all my life and I nearly got to hell But my Uncle dug potatoes and he struck an oil well Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Have a drink, have a drink, have a drink on me Ev'rybody have a drink on me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me Have a drink, have a drink, have a drink on me Ev'rybody have a drink on me Hey, hey, ev'rybody drink on me TRIVIA: A re-writing of Huddy "Leadbelly" Leadbetter & Alan Lomax's 1934 song "Take a Whiff on Me"
