(Davie Robertson)

When I was but fiteen year auld I got intae ma hauns
A bottle o' the best o' stuff fae Fowlers o' the Pans

(Cho) A drinking man, a drinkin man
A drinkin man I'll be
For I hae been a drinkin man
And a drinkin man I'll dee

And since that day wi' demon drink, I've danced a merry jig
Mair liquid has gaen ow'er my neck as through the Nunn Gate brig

On reachin' man's estate I wed a lass beyond compare
And the first nicht o' ma honeymoon spent crashed oot on the flair

It's drink that cools ma summer drouth and warms ma winter shiver
It's drink that satisfies ma mooth and putrifies ma liver

And when auld age comes creepin' in I'll never girn or greet
But I'll drag ma guts doon tae the pub and bang them fu' o' bree

And tho' I'm here tae sing this sang when life and spirit flee,
I'll hae nae fancy marble tomb so wi' this remember me
