Never Git Drunk No More
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Dropkick Murphys

I’ll take this jug of Drinkin’ Juice!
I’ll bust it on the wall!!
I’ll stay sober th’ resta of my days!
Never touch th’ stuff at all!
I’ll never touch th’ stuff at all!

How many times ya promised me
You’d never drink that juice?
I’ve learned 5000 times ore more,
To trust you ain’t no use,
To trust you ain’t no use.

I’ll never get drunk no more, my love!
I’ll never get drunk no more!
I’ll never walk into that barroom door
I’ll never get drunk no more,
I’ll never get drunk anymore.

Oh please, my dear, open up your heart
and open up your gate!
Open up your door so locked and barr’d!
Please give me one more date!
Please give me one more date!

Ten million times you broke my heart
With a bottle at your side,
Don’t wanna make love to the bottle,
I wanna make love to my bride!
I wanna make love to my bride!

I’ll never get drunk no more, my love
I’ll never get drunk no more!
I’ll never walk into that barroom door!
I’ll never get drunk no more.

Oh please my dear, open up your heart,
And open up your gate!
My doors are locked and you are banned,
You ain’t getting’ no more dates!
You ain’t getting’ no more dates!

I’ll never get drunk no more, my love!
I’ll never get drunk no more!
I’ll never walk into that barroom door!
I’ll never get drunk no more.

I’ll never get drunk no more, my love!
I’ll never get drunk no more!
I’ll never walk into that barroom door!
I’ll never get drunk no more,
I’ll never get drunk anymore.
