Intro:  B5  E  B5  E

I can make anybody pretty. 
E     B5                     
I can make you beleive any lie. 
E     B5              F#/A#      G#5             B5   F#5     F#sus4
I can make you pick a fight with somebody, twice your size

F#   B5
Well I've been known to cause a few break-ups. 
E        B5
And I've been known to cause a few births. 
E     B5           F#/A#    G#5    B5             F#5    F#sus4
I can make you new friends, or get you fired from work. 

F#            B5                     E
And since the day I left Milwaukee. 
B5                               E
Lynchburg, or Bordeaux, France.    I've
     B5         F#/A#  G#m              B
Been making the bars,  lots of big money. 
C#m                      F#
And helping white people dance. I
B5                         E
got you in trouble in high-school. But
B5                           E
College now that was a ball.
    B5  E           B#/D#                  C#m        B
You had some of the best times, but you'll never remember with me. 
F#           B5    E            B5
   Alcohol,           Alcohol. 

I got blamed at your wedding reception 
For your best manís embarrassing speech 
And also for those naked pictures of you at the beach 
Iíve influenced kings and world leaders 
I helped Hemingway write like he did 
And Iíll bet you a drink or two that I can make you put that lampshade on your head 
Chorus 2: 
ĎCause since the day I left Milwaukee 
Lynchburg and Bordeaux, France 
Been making a fool out of folks just like you and helping white people dance 
I am medicine and I am poison 
I can help you up or make you fall
You had some of the best times youíll never remember with me  
Alcohol, Alcohol.

Repeat Chorus

These chords are right on the money. Excellent job. Sounds like the exact same chords that Brad plays. After seeing the video it looks like the same ones too. Keep on tabbin' man nice work!!

-crcrcrcr | 8/5/2005

-sumodano | 10/12/2005
hiya guys,one question...are these the exact chords of the Alcohol acustic version(Live@LaunchYahooExclusive)?i'm trying to find it,but here in Spain no one ever heard of Brad Paisley...they just don't listen to any country here!?,i don't know what u think,but i think it's a lot better than the video...
-the_pepsi_kidd | 12/7/2005
Good Tab!The chord progression is much easier played like this coming down the neck:

B: 7998xx (Bar Chord)
Bb: 6986xx (Bar Chord)
G#m : bar chord listed
B: x2444x (normal B chord)
F#: 244322 (normal F# chord)

Great work. I don't know where all the other people are comming up with the capo and tuned down things, but i know that the song doesn't use a capo or isn't tuned down. Keep on Keepin' on!!
