Whisky for my Johnny

Whisky for my Johnny

Traditional - Lyrics from Iron Men & Wooden Ships, by Frank Shay


Oh, whisky is the life of man,
Whisky, Johnny!
I drink whisky when I can,
Oh, whisky for my Johnny!

Whisky from an old tin can,
Whisky, Johnny!
I'll drink whisky when I can,
Oh, whisky for my Johnny!

I drink it hot, I drink it cold,
Whisky, Johnny!
I drink it new, I drink it old,
Oh, whisky for my Johnny!

Whisky makes me feel so sad,
Whisky, Johnny!
Whisky killed my poor old dad,
Oh, whisky for my Johnny!
