Alcohol Of Fame chords – Stonewall Jackson

 G D7 G 
I used to be a big man I owned most all this town
 
     C G A7 D7 
And I was well respected by folks for miles around 

 G D7 G 
Then I turned to the bottle lost my home destroyed my name 

    C G D7 G 
My drinking friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame 


 D7 C G 
Tonight there'll be no laughter when I tell them how I feel 

 D7 A7 D7 
But a man must make his mark in life no matter how unreal
 
 G D7 G 
For tonight I'll be rewarded for my failure and my shame
 
    C G D7 G 
My drinking friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame 


                                        D7 G 
Tonight I'll dress I'll go downtown to the barroom on skid row 

    C G A7 D7 
My friends will take me by the hand when I reach those swinging doors

 G D7 G 
I'll be the guest of honor when they immortalize my name 

    C G D7 G 
My drinking friends elected me to the Alcohol of Fame
 

 D7 C G 
Tonight there'll be no laughter when I tell them how I feel 

 D7 A7 D7 
But a man must make his mark in life no matter how unreal

For tonight I'll be rewarded for my failure and my shame
