Pay No Attention To Alice
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: For The People In The Last Hard Town (1973)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

I went to see an old army buddy of mine to do some drinkin'
And his wife had become an alcoholic and I wrote a song about it

G                   C            G
Pay no attention to Alice, she's drunk all the time
C                                         G
Hooked on that wine, bunches of it and it ruined her mind
G                   C           G                C
Pay no attention to Alice, they say she's a sot, sane she is not
C                         G 
But she loves it and it's all she's got

    D                          C
She made that apple pie from a memory
          G               D                     G
Made them biscuits from a recollection that she had
    D                                          C
She cooked that chicken too long but she don't know that
    G              D
Oh, what the hell, it ain't too bad


Don't talk about the war, I was a coward
Talk about fishin' and all the good times, raisin' hell
Empty that one down we'll get another
It's gettin' late, we might as well
Well we ran your car into a ditch, man, don't sweat it
I know Ben down at the Shell Station, he'll get it out
Alice put your ashes in that ashtray
I swear woman you're gonna burn down the house

Pay no attention to Alice she's drunk all the time
