Slim Dusty - Born With An Endless Thirst

Your rating:
Old Jimmy he liked whiskey, for whippin' the old TB
Hank Williams lived by the bottle, right to the end by 
gee!
I too might die from alcohol but I won't be the first, 
County Music singers are just born with an endless 
thirst.

There's one more name I'll mention, his name is Mr Hall
He loves his beer and bourbon, oh I'd say he's tried em 
all 
And some I'm afraid have gone onto the other stuff 
that's worse
I'll do no harm if I bend my arm to ease my endless 
thirst

So many of our brothers, in early life did lose, 
We're either way up in the clouds or down deep in the 
blues, 
It's a way life we're born to, so for better or for 
worse
Country music singers are just born with an endless 
thirst, 

When I left my home away up north many long years ago
Our songs were played at 4 am and country radio
Oh they called us hicks and hillbillies and sometimes 
even worse
Twas enough to drive a man to drink, excuse my endless 
thirst

So from cowboy songs to country songs it's been a long 
hard grind
We were looked upon with such disdain back in the good 
old times
And as old G.P and few like me couldn't give tinkers 
curse
We've done it all our way anyway, lived with our 
endless thirst

So many of our brothers, in early life did lose, 
We're either way up in the clouds or down deep in the 
blues, 
It's a way life we're born to, so for better or for 
worse
Country music singers are just born with an endless 
thirst, 

Those smart bandwagon hoppers wouldn't spit on the 
country scene
When we were in the doldrums, now they're bursting at 
the seams.
Oh they prance around like peacocks in city clubs and 
halls, 
But fancy boots and hats don't make a fine star after 
all

So I'll just stick to my old bush songs, the ones that 
I enjoy, 
Oh you'll understand my stories I'm not makin' too much 
noise
And if I should die from alcohol then I won't be the 
first, 
'Cos country music singers are born with an endless 
thirst

So many of our brothers, in early life did lose, 
We're either way up in the clouds or down deep in the 
blues, 
It's a way life we're born to, so for better or for 
worse
Country music singers are just born with an endless 
thirst, hey

Country music singers are just born with an endless 
thirst, 
Born with an endless thirst, hey
