          G           G
Brew the coffee in a bucket
          G            G/B     C/G
Double straight man and banjo
    C/G                G
If you don’t got the snake oil
         C/G                  D/F#
Buster, you don’t got a show
              G      D/F#
Who puts the doh-re-me
        G
In our pockets
           G   G/B         C/G
Keeps the party going on?
          C/G
It’s the man
               G
Who sells the potions
         D/F#               G
I’m just one who plays the songs
 
 
          D/F#
Now they generally buys
     D7/F#
The bigger size
     G                  G  (A) (B)
They usually rub it in
    C                G
I drank it once, it tasted
       C/G            D/F#
Like grease and paraffin
      G     D/F#  G
It’s mostly alcohol, okay
 G           G/B       C/G
You can’t deny it’s strong
       C/G                G
We was going through the motions
          D/F#         G    (D) (E) (F#)
’til the doctor came along
 
 
  G               Bm/F#     C
There stands the bottle
            G         (D) (G) (F#) C/G
Ladies and gentlemen
           G       C/G
All these bottles
               D7/F#
Don’t have to tell you, friends
  G    D/F#  G
These days, miracles
            G     G/B         C/G
Don’t come falling from the sky
             C/G           G      C/G
Raise your glasses to the doctor
       G   D/F#  G
To a stand up guy

          G               G
When the monkeyshine is flying
           G   G/B           C/G
And he’s promising the cure
    C/G
He says the french
          G
For your lovesick blues
    C/G        D/F#
La maladie d’amour
    G         D/F#      G
He gets the chumps all laughing
        G      G/B    C/G
But he gets a few to buy
           C/G
Here’s to beefsteak
             G
When you’re hungry
      D/F#                G
And whiskey when you’re dry
 
 
         D/F#               D7/F#
Now the band’ll blow their moolah
      G                   G  (A) (B)
Like sailors gone ashore
           C               G
Now we’re going to west helena
    C/G                D/F#
To gamble, drink and whore
       G       D/F#
Let’s you and me
     G            G
All make whoopee
       G/B         C/G
Here’s mud in your eye
          C/G              G
Here’s to all the gals you ever want
     D/F#            G   (D) (E) (F#)
And heaven when you die
 
 
 
  G               Bm/F#     C
There stands the bottle
            G         (A) (G) (F#) C/G
Ladies and gentlemen
           G       C/G
All these bottles
               D7/F#
Don’t have to tell you, friends
  G    D/F#  G
These days, miracles
            G     G/B         C/G
Don’t come falling from the sky
             C/G           G      C/G
Raise your glasses to the doctor
       G   D/F#  G
To a stand up guy
 
 
| C/G | G C/G | G D7/F# | G |
 
 
           G                 G
There’s a big cheese with a cigar
      G       G/B    C/G
Been sizing up the show
    C/G              G
He wants to get the doctor
         C/G           D/F#
Pitching on the radio
        G       D/F#     G
I will make a switch to guitar
         G          G/B     C/G
But the rules all still apply
  C/G                   G
They want to trust somebody
            D/F#            G   (D) (E) (F#)
Yeah, they want a stand up guy
 
 
  G               Bm/F#     C
There stands the bottle
          G   (A) (G) (F#) C/G
Here’s to absent friends
           G       C/G
All these bottles
              D7/F#
Dead soldiers in the end
  G    D/F#  G
These days, miracles
            G     G/B         C/G
Don’t come falling from the sky
             C/G           G      C/G
Raise your glasses to the doctor
       G   D/F#   G  C/G
To a stand up guy
        G      C/G
To the doctor
    G   D/F#    G
A stand up guy
