Nazareth Demon Alcohol

Hard times comin’ so the messenger said

Better guard your liquor like your own homestead

Took it under cover, then we took it underground

In temptation, we had another round

Governor came, ’bout eleven or twelve

Under so much pressure,’couldn’t help himself

Word got out to the national guard

Spread like a fire in a lumber yard

Saddle up boys,and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

Cavalry came, and we were tumblin’ dice

Wouldn’t let them in ‘cos they wouldn’t ask nice

Drank to the health of friends and foe

Thanks to the Lord, but he never did show

Second wind gone as the second wave came

Manned in command, in the president’s name

Kept at bay, kept knockin’ at the door

Couldn’t care less ‘cos we all wanted more

Saddle up boys and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

Dried up supplies ’till the morning sun

Never realized where it all could’ve gone

List up boys, it’s plain to see

Hell is merely sobriety

Saddle up boys and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

Saddle up boys and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

The saddle up, boys

You better pray, boys

Saddle up, boys

You better pray, boys

Damn that demon alcohol.
