Who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) Who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) 'Cause Deacon Jones knelt down to pray All he said was, "Hey! Hey! Hey!" So, who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) (Now, who threw the whiskey in the well) In the well (Who threw the whiskey in the well) In the well I'm feelin' mighty fine, I'm higher than Georgia Pine (So, who threw the whiskey in the well) In the well (Instrumental Break) Who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) Who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) Keep your dippers outta the well or we all wind up in (Well) (Who threw the whiskey in the well) That's what I'd like to know Oh, sisters and brothers I'm takin' my leave of thee Every time I show you the light And you all live outside of me Yes, brother Jones brought his bones Sister Ash has all the cash Let's get together, drink water, get tall Come on children, let's have a ball ******************** As recorded by LOUIS PRIMA: Who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) Who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) 'Cause Deacon Jones knelt down to pray All he said was, "Hey! Hey!" So, who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) It early Sunday mornin' and the church was crowded full Old Elder Brown was raving, he was angry as a bull The congregation sensed it and they knew just what he meant When he said, "The text today is you sinners must repent!" (Tell me, who threw the whiskey in the well) In the well, Hallelujah! (Say, who threw the whiskey in the well) In the well Oh, I'm feelin' mighty good, as good as Robin Hood So, who threw the whiskey in the well (In the well) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2015)
