Oh, we're all Cabar Feidh, and we're singin' as we go,
Tae the promised land where the beer and whisky flow,
We were drunk last night, aye, and drunk the night before
And we're all in the Salvation Army

Anyone know the rest?

Well I know Caber Feidh, as it's the regimental march of the Seaforth Highlanders. The regiment has a tie in with the Clan MacKenzie, and the Earls of Seaforth were MacKenzies. However, I've never heard words to that tune.

For we're all cabarfeidh

For were all cabarfeidh and were singing as we go
To the Promised Land where the beer and whisky flows,
We were drunk last night aye and drunk the night before
And we're all in the Queens Own Highlanders.

No booze today no booze today no booze because it's Sunday,
No booze today no booze today we'll have to wait till Monday,

For we're all cabarfeidh and were singing as we go
To the Promised Land where the beer and whisky flows,
We were drunk last night aye and drunk the night before
And we're all in the Queens Own Highlanders.

So good by booze for ever more my boozing days are nearly o'er
Had a good time but it didn't agree, look what booze has done to me,

For were all cabarfeidh and were singing as we go
To the Promised Land where the beer and whisky flows,
We were drunk last night aye and drunk the night before
And we're all in the Queens Own Highlanders.


So good by booze for ever more my boozing days are nearly o'er
And when I die don't bury me at all just soak my bones in alcohol,

For were all cabarfeidh and were singing as we go
To the Promised Land where the beer and whisky flows,
We were drunk last night aye and drunk the night before
And we're all in the Queens Own Highlanders.

And one for Cabarfeidh

Well she tore my clothes
She swelled my head
So goodbye booze i'm goin to bed
I had a good time, but we couldn't agree
So you see what booze has done for me

Oh goodbye booze Forever more
My boozin' days will soon be o'er
I had a good time, but we couldn't agree
So you see what booze has done for me
Well she slammed my head
She broke my heart
So goodbye booze its time we part
I had a good time


That's a version of a song we used to call Goodbye Booze. Sung by the Old Crow Medecine show.

We sung another version when I were a lad. Which ended with

For we're alll teetotal, singing as we go
To the land where the beer and whisky flow.

Though what it has to do with Caber Feidh I don't know. It's not even to the same tune.
