Story behind the song
Wanted to write a traditional sounding Irish song. So I did. Like a good number of my songs, this is meant for a singer with a very different voice. If anyone would like to cover it, I will post your version and promote it.
Lyrics
#484- Jimmy 0’ Whiskey ©2016 by Rob Lincoln Capo 1 G Around Paterson town Em Never wore a frown G D Came a rambling and a gambling Jimmy O G A sweetheart by his side Em Told them to come inside G D G A smiling and lying Jimmy O C Says he’s a lucky man G And he’s glad to lend a hand C G D To everyone and anyone he knows C But he’s got sing a song G Wants all to sing along C G D He clears his throat and this is how it goes Chorus G D Em C Jimmy O’Whiskey Jimmy O’ Whiskey G D G D That’s the name they gave to good old me Jimmy O’Whiskey 2x G D G I’m so glad I am free Now he’s stumbling out the door Says he cannot drink no more A dizzy in a tizzy Jimmy O A bottle in his hand A solitary man Down the streets are spinning Jimmy O Says he feels no pain As he stumbles in the rain Passes everyone he thought he used to know But he’s got sing a song Wants all to sing along He clears his throat and this is how it goes Chorus 2x Jimmy O’Whiskey 2x That’s the name they gave to poor old me Jimmy O’Whiskey 2x Someday I will be free
