Nancy Whiskey

Pogues

 GDG
 GCD
 As I went down through Glasgow city
 GCD
 Just to see what I might spy
 GCD
 What should I see but Nancy Whiskey
 GCD
 A playful twinkle in her eye
 GCD
 Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
 GDG
 Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

G C D x2

I bought her, I drank her, I had another
Ran out of money, so I did steal
She ran me ragged, Nancy Whiskey
For seven years, a rollin' wheel

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh
The more I held her, the more I loved her
Nancy had her spell on me
All I knew was lovely Nancy
The things I needed I could not see
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

As I awoke to slake my thirst
As I tried crawling from my bed
I fell down flat, I could not stagger
Nancy had me by the legs
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

Come on landlandy, what's the owing
Tell me what there is to pay
Fifteen shillings that's the reckoning
Now pay me quickly and go away Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

***Version 3*** by Steve

(C) I'm a weaver, a (F) Calton (G)weaver,
(C) I'm a rash, and (F) Roving (G) Blade.
(C) I've got siller (F) in my (G) pouches,
(C) I gan tae follow (F) the roving (G) trade.

(C) Whisky, whisky, (F) Nancy (G)Whisky,
(C)Whisky, whisky, (G) Nancy (C) O'

As I gaed in by Glasgow city,
Nancy whisky I chanced tae smell.
I went in, sat doon beside her,
Seven long years I loved her well.

The mair I kissed her, the mair I loved her,
The mair I kissed her, the mair she smiled,
An I forgot my mither's teaching,
Nancy soon had me beguiled.

I rose early in the morning,
For my drouth, it was my need.
I tried tae rise, but I wasna able,
Nancy had me by the heid.

C'wa landlady, whit's the law then,
Tell me whit there is tae pey?
Fifteen shillings is the reckoning,
Tell me now, then go away!

As I gaed oot by Glasgow city,
Nancy whisky I chanced tae smell.
I went in, spent four and sixpence,
All I got wis a crooked spell.

Sae I'll gan back tae the Calton Weaving,
I will mak' they shuttles fly.
An I'll mak' mair at the Calton weaving,
Than I ever did in a roving way.

C'm all ye weavers, ye Calton weavers,
C'm all ye weavers, wherever ye be,
Bewave o whisky, Nancy whisky,
She'll ruin you, like she ruined me.
