  G              F                   Eb     F       G 
Whiskey Man's my friend he's with me nearly all the time.
  G                F                Eb     F       G  
He always joins me when I drink and we get on just fine.
 D         Am7           G       C    G 
Nobody has ever seen him I'm the only one.
 D          Am7             G  C     G 
Seemingly I must be mad, insanity is fun.
   G          C        G 
If that's the way it's done.


 G       F        G      F       G     F       Eb 
Doctor's say he's just a figment of my twisted mind.
   G          F      G       F        G       F     Eb
If they can't see my Whiskey Man they must be going blind.

(repeat for horn solo)


G                  F               Eb     F    G 
Two men dressed in white collected me two days ago.
     G                 F                Eb      F         G
They said there's only room for one and Whiskey Man can't go.
 D               Am7           G         C      G       
Whiskey Man will waste away if he's left on his own.
 D           Am7               G     C      G  
I can't even ring him cause he isn't on the phone.
G      C     G 
Hasn't got a home.


G       F    G      F       G      F      Eb 
Life is very gloomy in this little padded cell.
G      F           G      F        G       F      Eb 
It's a shame there wasn't room for Whiskey Man as well.


G                F                   Eb     F       G 
Whiskey Man's my friend he's with me nearly all the time.
   G               F                Eb     F       G 
He always joins me when I drink and we get on just fine.
