Whiskey for my Johnny

Long Drag Shanty
O, whiskey is the life of man,
Whiskey, Johnny!
I drink whiskey when I can
Whiskey for my Johnny!

2. Whiskey from an old tin can,
Whiskey, Johnny!
I'll drink whiskey when I can.
Whiskey for my Johnny!

3. I drink it hot, I drink it cold,
Whiskey, Johnny!
I drink it new, I drink it old.
Whiskey for my Johnny!

4. Whiskey makes me feel so sad,
Whiskey, Johnny!
Whiskey killed my poor old dad.
Whiskey for my Johnny!

5. I thought I heard the old man say,
Whiskey, Johnny!
I'll treat my crew in a decent way.
Whiskey for my Johnny!

6. A glass of grog for every man,
Whiskey, Johnny!
And a bottle full for the chanteyman.
Whiskey for my Johnny!

7. O whiskey hot and whiskey cold
Whiskey, Johnny!
Oh whiskey new and whiskey old
Whiskey for my Johnny!

8. Oh whiskey here and whiskey there
Whiskey, Johnny!
Oh I'd have whiskey everywhere
Whiskey for my Johnny!

9. Oh whiskey killed my poor old dad
Whiskey, Johnny!
Oh whiskey drove my mother mad
Whiskey for my Johnny!

10. Oh whiskey made me pawn my clothes
Whiskey, Johnny!
Oh whiskey gave me this red nose
Whiskey for my Johnny!
