Blue Ribbon Beer – Swisher Sweet Cigars

His name was JD – was short for John Doe

If that was the truth – I never will know

He’d tell us about – the nineteen twenties

He was a man and the girls were plenty

Blue Ribbon Beer – and Swisher Sweet Cigars

He’d sit on the front steps – playing his guitar

Hot summer days – long moonlit nights

He would sing us stories about his life

He joined the Army – can’t recall what for

Then he went and fought – the 2nd World War

He’d tell us about it – and blow smoke to the sky

That old man is still – a hero in my eyes

Blue Ribbon Beer – and Swisher Sweet Cigars

He’d sit on the front steps – playing his guitar

Hot summer days – long moonlit nights

He would sing us stories about his life

He has been dead now – for thirty years

When I think of him – I don’t shed a tear

I just light up a smoke – and reminisce

I miss that old man on summer nights like this

Blue Ribbon Beer – and Swisher Sweet Cigars

He’d sit on the front steps – playing his guitar

Hot summer days – long moonlit nights

He would sing us stories about his life
