Vrs 1
My daddy use to come home and sit in his favorite chair.
Cuz he knew my momma ...always left a clean glass there.
( I said) My daddy use to come home
Head straight for his favorite chair
Take one look at me and say..
"Little girl you dont understand but some day, some day."
(Some day you'll understand!)

Vrs 2
Now my daddy have a hard day he'd say...
So he'de stop down by the bar along the way.
Got to thinking bout his job..said some ripple would cheer him up!
But then he'de drank that ole English that brought him down.
(That ole English that brought him down!)
Tried to drown out his working sorrows, was sure 50 proof would do!
What Oh what could my daddy do...bout those working man blues?

Dont daddy dont daddy dont,
(Put That Dirty Glass Down!)
Dont daddy dont daddy dont
(Put That Dirty Glass Down!)
Dont you drink that dirty water. Dont you even dad...
Dont you drink that dirty water. So put that Dirty Glas Down!
(Dont ya do it!)
Put that dirty glass down!

Bridge:
That old daddy of mine, come home.eyes all red and sit in his favorite chair.
But My momma, my momma would never approach him said..
She said "Jonny Walkers Been There!"
(Jonny Walkers Been There!)
She'de give daddy some time to unwind
then slowly.Slowly slowly, seemed it was dinner time.
(Dinner Time, Dinner Time!)

Chorus:
Dont you drink that dirty water. (Dont you even dad),
Dont you drink that dirty water. So put that Dirty Glas Down!
(Dont ya do it!) Put that dirty glass down!
Dont cha do it dad!
