American Ballads and Folk Songs
Whisky gave me this red nose, Whisky for my Johnny]
Whisky is the life of man, Whisky Johnny! I'll drink my whisky while I can, Whisky for my Johnny!
Oh, whisky straight and whisky strong, Whisky Johnny!
Give me whisky and I'll sing you a song, Whisky for my Johnny!
Whisky killed my poor old dad, Whisky Johnny! Whisky druv my mother mad, Whisky for my Johnny!
I drink whisky, my wife drinks gin, Whisky Johnny!
And the way she drinks it is a sin, Whisky for my Johnny!
I and my wife cannot agree, Whisky Johnny! For she drinks whisky in her tea, Whisky for my Johnny!
I had a girl, her name was Lize, Whisky Johnny! She puts whisky in her pies, Whisky for my Johnny!
Whisky stole my brains away, Whisky Johnny! The bos'n pipes and I'll belay, Whisky for my Johnny!
