Whisky you're the devil
You're leading me astray
Over hills and mountains
And to Amerikay
You're sweeter, stronger, decenter,
And spunkier than tea
Oh whisky you're my darling drunk or sober

Now brave boys, we're on for march
Off to Portugal and Spain
Drums are beating, banners flying
The Devil all home we'll come tonight
Love, fare thee well
With me tithery-aye me doodle-ah-m'dah
Me tithery-aye me doodle-ah-m'dah
Me rikes fall to ra laddie-o
There's whisky in the jar

Hey! Whisky you're the devil
You're leading me astray
Over hills and mountains
And to Amerikay
You're sweeter, stronger, decenter,
And spunkier than tea
Oh whisky you're my darling drunk or sober

Says the mother do not wrong me
Don't take me daughter from me
For if you do I will torment you
An' after death, my ghost will haunt you
Love, fare thee well
With me tithery-aye me doodle-ah-m'dah
Me tithery-aye me doodle-ah-m'dah
Me rikes fall to ra laddie-o
There's whisky in the jar

Hey! Whisky you're the devil
You're leading me astray
Over hills and mountains
And to Amerikay
You're sweeter, stronger, decenter,
And spunkier than tea
Oh whisky you're my darling drunk or sober

Now, the French are fighting boldly
Men are dying hot and coldly
Give every man his flask of powder
His firelock on his shoulder
Love, fare thee well
With me tithery-aye me doodle-ah-m'dah
Me tithery-aye me doodle-ah-m'dah
Me rikes fall to ra laddie-o
There's whisky in the jar

Hey! Whisky you're the devil
You're leading me astray
Over hills and mountains
And to Amerikay
You're sweeter, stronger, decenter,
And spunkier than tea
Oh whisky you're my darling drunk or sober
