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.
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 + Repeat first two lines.
