Chorus:
       E                  A                  B7 
I said no deal, you can't sell this stuff to me
B                                E 
No deal, I'm going back to Tennessee
       E                  A                  B7 
I said no deal, you can't sell this stuff to me
B                                E 
No deal, I'm going back to Tennessee

          E
Well this man down at the used car lot
         B7
Tried to sell me four wheels and a trunk
         B7
I said, "Man, there ain't no engine!"
              E  
He said, "The engine's just a bunch of junk
         E    
He said "You don't need no engine to go downhill
    A 
And I could plainly see
     B7
that that's the direction you're headed in" 
                     E 
And he handed me the key

Chorus

Well, I went to a doctor of the highest order
He said I couldn't have a drink for a year
One glass of wine on my birthday
If my birthday wasn't too very near
Lord, he must have put me in a state of shock
'cause I made it for about two weeks
Then he sent me a bill that knocked me flat off the wagon
And back down on my feet

Chorus


Well, I come through this life a stumbler, my friends
And I expect to die that way
It could be twenty years from now
It could be most any day
But if there is no whiskey and women, Lord
Up behind them heavenly doors
I'm gonna take my chances down below
And of that you can be sure
