G C G D7
Dooley was a good old man he lived below the mill
Dooley had two daughters and a 40 gallon still
C G D7
One gal watched the boiler the other watched the spout
G C D7 G
And momma corked the bottles and old Dooley fetched them out

Dooley slipping up the holler Dooley trying to make a dollar
C D7 G
Dooley gimmee a swaller and I'll pay you back someday

C G D7
The revenuers came for him a-slipping through the woods
Dooley kept behind them all and never lost his goods
C G D7
Dooley was a trader when into town he come
G C D7 G
Sugar by the bushel and molasses by the ton

Repeat #2

C G D7
I remember very well the day old Dooley died
The women folk felt sorry and the men stood round and cried
C G D7
Now Dooley's on the mountain he lies there all alone
G C D7 G
They put a jug beside him and a barrel for a stone

Repeat #2 x2
