1. As we sailed on the water blue
    Whiskey Johnny!
    A good long pull and a strong one too
    Whiskey for my Johnny!

2. Whiskey killed my brother Tom
    Whiskey Johnny!
    I drink my whiskey all day long
    Whiskey for my Johnny!

3. Whiskey made me pawn my clothes
    Whiskey Johnny!
    And Whiskey gave me this red nose
    Whiskey for my Johnny!

4. Whiskey stole my brains away
    Whiskey Johnny
    The bos 'n pipes and I'll delay,
    Whiskey for my Johnny.
