(Music and Lyrics by Dave Malloy)

ALL
Oh evan williams
You dirty-faced, scruffy-kneed boy

BRENT
When i was poor and lonely
I’d put you in a jelly jar
Put you in the pocket of my old trench coat
And sneak you into the bar
And now i got plenty of money
But that doesn’t mean i don’t love you
When the endtimes fall and the zombies crawl
I‘m gonna drink you out of my shoe

ALL
I like to lose my mind
Get blurry sloppy boozy and blind
Like to put my hand on a pretty girl’s knee
And i got four dear friends to help me

Oh jameson
You dignified, righteous young man

BRITTAIN
I don’t care much for god
No matter what set of rules you’ve got
Protestant this and-a catholic that
To me it’s just diddly-squat
But I love a good rebellion
And I love to hear a fiddle slide
So when the rebels croon ‘bout the rising moon
I’m drinking right there on jamie’s side

ALL
I like to lose my mind
Get blurry sloppy boozy and blind
Like to put my hand on a pretty girl’s knee
And I got four dear friends to help me

Oh, maker’s mark
You sweet little temptress you

DAVE
I remember you and my daddy
Sitting in an easy chair
He’d break open your wax and pour a finger or two
Then sit in the dark and just stare
And I know that he was thinkin’ ‘bout something
Maybe something sad from long ago
And when he’d tuck me in, with a sad little grin
I’d think maybe I don’t wanna know

ALL
I like to lose my mind
Get blurry sloppy boozy and blind
Like to put my hand on a pretty girl’s knee

BRITTAIN & GELSEY
Pretty boy’s knee

ALL
And i got four dear friends to help me

Oh, lagavulin
You lovely lady of the lochs

GELSEY
There’s a forest burning somewhere
And the moon is red as blood
But then i look in your eyes and the fairies come
And i’m squishing my toes in the mud
I’m dancing on the stones of the oracle
I’m kissing in the waterfall
I’m under your spell, in a wishing well
I’m lost and i don’t care at all

ALL
I like to lose my mind
Get blurry sloppy boozy and blind
I like to put my hand on a pretty girl’s knee

DAVE & BRENT
Pretty boy’s knee

ALL
And i got four dear friends to help me
Four dear friends to help me
Four dear friends to help me
