Lyrics

Nancy Whiskey (Whisky) first appeared in print the early 1900s. It also appears as Long Cookstown and The Dublin Weaver. Nancy Whiskey does not refer to a woman, but to the drink.

There are two other versions at this site:

As I walked into Glasgow City
Nancy Whiskey I chanced to spy
I walked in, sat down beside her
Seven long years spent by her side.
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, 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.
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O
I've got silver in my pockets
And I'm going to follow wherever you go.

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.

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

And repeat last two lines.
