Oehne Lyr Add: World of Whiskey (Whisky Anthem) (3) Lyr Add: World of Whiskey (Whisky Anthem) 03 Jan 08


Hi folks,

just heard a good new song performed by Robin Laing called

World of Whiskey (or Whisky Anthem)

Chorus:
From the Lowlands to the Highlands
From Japan to the Hebrides
From Orkney to Kentucky
And the far Antipodes
From Tennessee to Canada
And Ireland's emerald land
There's a world of whisky out there
So let's have another dram
There's a world of whisky out there
So let's have another dram


Here's to the corn and the maize
The barley and the rye
Here's to the good old angels
Floating up on high
Here's to the worms and the washbacks
The still house and the vats
The wood so tight – a lovely sight
Hoggies, barrels and butts


It's better for you than red wine
Less calories than beer
You can drink it any time of day
And any time of year
You can pour it on your porridge
Dab it behind your ears
In the hallowed halls of alcohol
Whisky has no peer


From the Lowlands to the Highlands
From Japan to the Hebrides
From Orkney to Kentucky
And the far Antipodes
From Tennessee to Canada
And Ireland's emerald land
There's a world of whisky out there
So let's have another dram
There's a world of whisky out there
So let's have another dram


Here's to the guys who drink the stuff
A little or a lot
And here's to the guys who sell it to 'em
What a difficult job they've got
Here's to the whisky blenders
May their noses be insured
But the guys who make it – you can take it
The keys to heaven are yours

Whisky for the heart
Whisky for the soul
Whisky stands for friendship
And stories to be told
And all around the world
Whenever whisky's poured
The hatred of the past will end at last
And peace will be restored


Chorus…


Good whisky song... isn't it?

Your's Frank
(from Hannover-Germany)
