Gentleman Jack

Lyrics & Music by Thorsten Jakobsson Copyright © thorstenj@hotmail.com, Jan 6, 2013

1866 in Lynchburg Tennessee

A man made a whiskey that soon would be

The best in the world with seven prices

could only be topped by his bbq spices

A drink made of rye, corn and barley

is a beverage that you can hardly

drink without responsibility

since old Jack created a whiskey epiphany

.

.

Gentleman Jack with the old Jack seven

made a drink that could take you to heaven

Everyday we make it

We’ll make it

We’ll make it

The best we can

Everyday we make it

We’ll make it

We’ll make it

The best we can

.

.

A dark night in a marble rock cavern

Old jack built a still, entirely by hand

Dripping through sugar maple charcoal

the whiskey is cleaned, before it touches your soul

.

.

refr

In 1911 by kicking his safe

he soon was humming on his last verse

end of the story but his soul lives on

the brand he made we still depend on

.
