Lyrics

The year was 1919, the women and the UFA
Shut down my old man?s way (of living)
The taps were running dry, the wino starts to cry
The barkeep says stumble back to the gutter and die

The days to come were hard, a nation not to drink
But what to do with all the time
From the USA, some men began to think
They found a way to keep the whiskey rolling down the line

And they called it the whiskey gap
Everybody running through the whiskey gap
At the end of the whiskey gap the booze will come
Through the whiskey gap

Not as easy as it sounds, many, many days
Sitting around a waiting ? a brothers gotta get paid
Oh but when it came, the smiles on the faces
Of the people who?d rather not be other places

And they called it the whiskey gap
Everybody running through the whiskey gap
At the end of the whiskey gap the booze will come
Through the whiskey gap

In 1926 the problem went away
The drunkards in the village cry HOORAY!
All the crazy people, finally stopped their bitchin?
Last call for prohibition

But they remember the whiskey gap
Everybody running through the whiskey gap
At the end of the whiskey gap the booze will come

And they drink to the whiskey gap
And everyone who ran through the whiskey gap
Cause at the end of the whiskey gap the booze would come
Through the whiskey gap
