Nancy Whisky (Trad)

I am a weaver a Calton Weaver, I am a rash and a rovin’ blade
I’ve got sill’er in my pooches and I’ll gang an’ follow the roving trade.

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, Whisky Nancy-o!

As I went in by Glasgow City, Nancy Whisky I chanced to smell,
I went in, sat doon beside her, seven long years I loo’ed her well.

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, Whisky Nancy-o!

The more I kissed her the more I lov’ed her.
The more I kissed her the more she smiled.
Til I forgot my mither’s teachin’, Nancy soon had me beguiled.

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, Whisky Nancy-o!

When I rose early morning in the morning to quench my thirst it was my need
I tried to rise but I wisna able, Nancy had me by the heid.

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, Whisky Nancy-o!

I’m going back to the Carlton weaving I’ll surely make those shuttles fly

And curses be on Nancy whisky for Nancy whisky has ruined I

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, Whisky Nancy-o!

So come all you weavers, Calton Weavers
Come all you weavers where ere you be.
Beware of Whisky Nancy Whisky, She’ll ruin you as she ruined me.

Whisky, Whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, Whisky Nancy-o!
