   Whiskey & Beer

There's a man I used to know
So many years ago
He used to stagger up Brews Hill
On his shoulder stood a crow

Faithful to the end
His one and only friend
He could have been cuchulainn
Whom the crow could not defend

From a sad and bitter fate
He stops and falls into his gate
His daughter opens up the door
Disgusted at his state

This man is known all over town
They know life let him down
There's five children left to rear
But his wife's no longer there

been five years since they buried his dear
now he buries his grief in whiskey and beer
whiskey and beer x 2

All over Brews Hill every night
His cries lament his plight
You can hear him loud and clear
On his shoulder Jacko sits tight

He's spending all his dole
Down at the watering hole
Finnerty's tavern or smiths
His daughters sit there with no coal

One day she'll be back
The days won't be so black
That's what Jacko keeps telling him there
As the night wind they attack

One day she'll be back
He brings for his daughters a brack
Halloween is in town
The witches are all dressed in black


O Jacko sits on his shoulder and cries
She's on her way down from the sky
All the teenagers walking by laugh
But it's really their fear in disguise
Oh whiskey & beer
