As recorded by CHUCK MURPHY: Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Who drank my beer while I was in the rear My glass was fall and foamy, now it's deader than Salome Who drank my beer while I was in the rear I strolled into this bar room with my pipes as dry as chalk I bought myself a beer, then I had to take a walk While I was gone, some no good John has drank up my last dime I never thought a man could stoop to such a petty crime Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Expose that lowdown moocher and I'll dislocate his future Who drank my beer while I was in the rear (Instrumental Break) A beer don't just evaporate or skoot off like a fly It ain't got legs to walk away, which proves that there's a guy Among you critters at the bar who's had a beer for free Be honest, boys, and point that lowdown buzzard out to me Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Such cheapness calls for action, I'm demandin' satisfaction Who drank my beer while I was in the rear (Instrumental Break) As far back as my memory goes, I been a friend to man When one was down, I always tried to lend a helpin' hand Perhaps some gent with due intent'll do the same for me Replace my beer, so I'll still trust and love humanity Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Who drank my beer while I was in the rear It's terrible and it's awful, it's not legal, it's unlawful Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Hey, old buddy, how about one on the house? ******************** As recorded by TOMMY DUNCAN: I walked into this bar room with my pipes as dry as chalk I bought myself a beer and then I had to take a walk While I was gone, some no good John has drank up my last dime I never thought a man could stoop to such a petty crime Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Someone took over while I wasn't here My glass was fall and foamy, now it's deader than Salome Who drank my beer while I was in the rear (Instrumental Break) Don't let me leave this joint with only malice in my heart If there's a man among you, boys, it's time to act the part The day is hot, I'm thirsty, and believe me it's no joke If I don't wet my tonsils soon, I know I'm gonna choke Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Someone took over while I wasn't here Such cheapness calls for action, I'm demanding satisfaction Who drank my beer while I was in the rear (Instrumental Break) As far back as my memory goes, I been a friend to man When one was down, I always tried to lend a helpin' hand Perhaps some gent with due intent will do the same for me Replace my beer and then I'll still trust and love humanity Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Someone took over while I wasn't here It's terrible and it's awful, it's not legal, it's unlawful Who drank my beer while I was in the rear Who drank my beer while I was in the rear (I was in the rear) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
