This version of "Whiskey for my Johnny/Whiskey Johnny" differs somewhat from the versions in the DT:

Whiskey for My Johnnie--Long drag shantey
Source: Stanton H. King, King's book of Chanties, Oliver Ditson, Boston, 1918.

Solo: Oh whiskey is the life of man
Chorus: Whiskey, Johnny
Solo: Whiskey from an old tin can
Chorus: Whiskey for my Johnny

Whiskey makes me pawn my clothes
Whiskey gave me a broken nose

Whiskey makes me feel so sad,
Whiskey killed my poor old dad

Whiskey took my brains away
One more pull, and then belay

T.
