Traditional Scottish Songs
- Nancy Whisky

Here's is a song about the dangers of drink!

Nancy Whisky

As I walked into Glasgow City,
Nancy Whisky I chanced to spy.
I walked in, sat down beside her,
Seven long years spent by her side.

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky,
Whisky, Whisky, Nancy-O!
I've got silver in my pockets,
And I'm going to follow wherever you go.

The more I kissed her, the more I loved her.
The more I kissed her, the more she smiled.
I forgot my mother's warning,
Nancy soon had me beguiled.


As I walked down through Glasgow City,
With a heavy heavy heart and an achin' pain.
So many men all courtin' Nancy,
I'll not leave that lass again.
