As I walked into Glasgow City,
Nancy Whiskey I chanced to spy;
I walked in, sat down beside her,
Seven long years spent by her side.

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey,
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O;
I've got silver in my pockets,
And I'm going to follow wherever you go.

The more I kissed her, the more I loved her,
The more I kissed her, the more she smiled;
I forgot my mother's warning,
Nancy soon had me beguiled.

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey,
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O;
I've got silver in my pockets,
And I'm going to follow wherever you go.

As I walked down through Glasgow City,
With a heavy, heavy heart and an achin' pain;
So many men all courtin' Nancy,
I'll not leave that lass again.

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey,
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O;
I've got silver in my pockets,
And I'm going to follow wherever you go.

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey,
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O;
I've got silver in my pockets,
And I'm going to follow wherever you go.

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey,
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O.
