ONE SCOTCH, ONE BOURBON, ONE BEER
(Rudolph Toombs)
AMOS MILBURN (ALADDIN 3197, 1953)

One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
Please mister bartender, listen here
I ain't here for trouble, so have no fear
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer

I don't want soda nor bubble gum
You got what I want, just serve me some
Since my baby's been gone, everything is lost
I'm on this kick and I can't get off

One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
Please mister bartender, listen here
I ain't here for trouble, so have no fear
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer

My woman started me on this spree
I can't find her and she can't find me
She left this morning, said she wouldn't stay
She's been out all night and it's the break of day

One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
Please mister bartender, listen here
I ain't here for trouble, so have no fear
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer

One more nip and make it strong
I got to find my baby and drive her home [if it takes all night long]
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer
One scotch, one bourbon, one beer

JOHN LEE HOOKER VERSION (1965)

One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer
Hey mister bartender, come here
I want another drink and I want it now
My baby she gone, she been gone two night
I ain't seen my baby since night before last
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

[Spoken]
And then I sat there, gettin' high, mellow
Knocked out, feeling good, and by that time
I looked on the wall, at the old clock on the wall
By that time, it was ten thirty daddy
I looked down the bar, at the bartender
He said, "So what do you want Johnny?"
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

Well my baby she gone, she been gone two night
I ain't seen my baby since night before last
I wanna get drunk till I'm off of my mind
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

[Spoken]
And I sat there, gettin' high, stoned
Knocked out, and by that time
I looked on the wall, at the old clock again
And by that time, it was a quarter to two
Last call for alcohol
I said, "Hey mister bartender, what do you want?"

One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer
[Fade]
