Subject: Lyr Add: WHISKY, JOHNNY! (Robinson version)

On November 12, 1939, at Belvedere, Calif., the folklorist Sidney Robertson Cowell recorded this version of "Whisky, Johnny!" from Captain Leighton Robinson, Arthur Brodeur, Alex Barr, and Leighton McKenzie. You can hear them singing it at the Library of Congress's "American Memory" site.

                Oh, whisky here and whiskey there,
                      Whisky, Johnny!
                Oh, whisky here and whisky there,
                      Whisky for me Johnny!


                Oh, I'll drink whisky when I can,
                Oh, I'll drink whisky while I can.

                Oh, whisky gave me a broken nose....

                And whisky made me pawn my clothes....

                Oh, if whisky were a river and I were a duck....

                I'd swim around till I got blind drunk....

                Oh, whisky landed me in jail....

                Oh, whisky in an old tin pail....
