lyrics

Chorus:
Whisky, darlin' whisky, I drink it every day (Hey)
Whisky, darlin' whisky, it keeps me ills at bay (Hooray)
Whisky, darlin' whisky, I think it's my best friend (Hunh)
Me and my dear whisky'll be together ‘til the end

I woke up one groggy mornin', my girl had gone away
And on the kitchen table was a note and it did say
“I'm through with fightin' single malts and rare blends for your heart”
And from that very moment on I had a grand new start

Chorus

There's sherry casked and oaky, smoky, peaty too
And if you're up for drinkin' whisky, I'll have a drink with you
It never, ever judges you or your sorry lot
You better hurry to the bar cuz I'm drinkin' all they got

Chorus

It'll join you when you're fishin' or headin' to the game
And if you've had too many whiskies, it loves you all the same
It doesn't care if all you do is hang out with your mates
Now, if you'll excuse me, with the whisky I've a date

Chorus

There's sherry casked and oaky, smoky, peaty too
And if you're up for drinkin' whisky, I'll have a drink with you
It never, ever judges you or your sorry lot
You better hurry to the bar cuz I'm drinkin' all they got

Chorus
