1. Nancy Whiskey

From the recording Nancy Whiskey


Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Oh (2x)

I am a weaver, a Coulton weaver
I'm a rash and a roving blade
I've got silver in my pocket
I'll a gang for the rovin' trade

I was down by Glascow city,
Nancy whiskey I chance to meet
I went and spent four and sixpence
Seven long years and I loved her well

The more I kissed her, the more I loved her
The more I kissed her, the more I smiled
I forgot my mother's teachings
Nancy whiskey had me beguiled

I rose early in the morning
Quenched my thirst, it was my need
I tried to rise but, I was not able
Nancy whiskey had me by the heels

Come all ye weavers, ye Coulton weavers
Come all ye weavers, wherever ye be
Beware of whiskey, Nancy whiskey
She'll ruin you like she ruined me
