Whiskey, You're the Devil

Chorus:
G
Whiskey you're the devil
           C               G
You're leading me astray
C                        G                    A7          D
Over the hills and mountains and to Americae
           G                         
You're sweeter, stronger, decenter,
           C
You're spunkier than tae
       G                                                  D  G
Oh, whiskey you're my darlin' drunk or sober

     G
Oh now, brave boys, we're on the march
        D
And off to Portugal and Spain
       C                          G
The drums are beating, banners flying
       A7                      D
The devil a-home will come tonight
G        D          G
Love, fare thee well, with me
G
Tithery eye the doodelum da
      D
Me tithery eye, the doodelum the da
      C                     G
Me rikes fall tour a laddie
                            D       G
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

The French are fighting boldly
Men dying hot and coldly
Gives every man his flask of powder
His farlock on his shoulder
Love, fare thee well with me
Tithery eye the doodelum da
Me tithery eye, the doodelum the da
Me rikes fall tour a laddie
Oh there's wiskey in the jar

Said the mother, Do not wrong me
Don't take my daughter from me
For if you do, I will torment you
And after death a ghost will haunt you
Love, fare thee well with me
Tithery eye the doodelum da
Me tithery eye, the doodelum the da
Me rikes fall tour a laddie
Oh there's wiskey in the jar
