in a bad way, I present a song. There's a lady named Leslie Fish who does filk. If you're not familiar with it, it's songs based on fantasy/sci-fi stories, sometimes set to traditional tunes and sometimes original. I can't remember where she started this from, but I present the words and chords to 'Black Powder and Alcohol'
(A) - C - G - D - E (2x)
Black powder and alcohol,
When the states and the cities fall,
When your back is against the wall;
Black powder and alcohol.
Gimme charcoal to the measure two:
Send the bullet where you want it to.
Gimme sulphur to the measure three:
Make the powder gonna keep you free.
Gimme saltpetre, measure fifteen:
Sweetest shooting that you've ever seen! (chorus)
Gimme water, yeast, and veggie-trash:
Leave it sitting in the slurry-mash.
When it's ready, put it in the still:
If you can't heat it, then the sunlight will.
Draw the alcohol away, and then
Put the slurry back, and start again! (chorus)
Booze'll clean your cuts, or run your car.
You can make it anywhere you are.
Black powder in your cartridge shell
Will send the robbers running clean to Hell.
You can make them if you just know how.
So kids, remember what I tell you now!
An interesting piece, wouldn't you say?
