Nancy Whiskey

"I'm a weaver, a carlton weaver
I'm a rash and rovi'n blade
I've got silver in me pouches
And I follow the rovin trade

Whiskey whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey whiskey, nancy-o

As I went down to Glasgow city
Nancy Whiskey I chanced to smell
I walked in, and I sat right down beside her
For seven long years now I've loved her well


The more I kissed her, the more I liked her
The more I kissed her the more she smiled
Soon I'd forgotten my own poor mother's teachin
Nancy whiskey soon had me beguiled


As I awoke early in the morning
To slake my thirst it was my need
I tried to arise but I was unable
Nancy whiskey had me by the knees


So I've gone back to my carlton weaving
I'll surely make those shuttles fly
For I'll learn more at the carlton weaving
Than ere I did at this roaming trade


So come ye weavers, yoe carlton weavers
Come all ye weavers, where ere you be
Beware of whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
She'll ruin you like she ruined me
