Then when it was running around in my head most of the day and I caught myself singing it I thought I'd look it up and found that one of the verses they say, "o'er hills and mountains into Americay". So, the whiskey landed him in America?
Enjoy me new favorite song! Rick just told me (jokingly) I shouldn't listen to stuff like this, "it'll warp your mind." He must not know me very well. Pahahaha!
WHISKEY YOU'RE THE DEVIL Chorus: Whiskey you're the devil you're leading me astray Over hills and mountains into Americay You're sweeter, stronger, decenter You're spunkier than tea Oh whiskey you're me darlin' drunk or sober! Oh, now brave boys we're on for marching Up to Portugal and Spain drums are beating, banners flying The devil all home will come tonight Love, fare thee well With me tiddle-ee-iddle-doodle-a-ma-da me tiddle-ee-iddle-doodle-a-ma-da Me rightful too-ra-laddie-oh There's whiskey in the jar Said the mother do not wrong me do not take me daughter from me For if you do I will torment you And after death me ghost will haunt you Love fare thee well Oh the French are fighting boldly Men are dying hot and coldly Give every man his flask of powder His firelock upon his shoulder Love fare thee well
