GUEST,^&* DT Corr: Two Young Brethren (12) RE: DT Corr: Two Young Brethren 12 Nov 10

But do any of us have the wherewithal?

In addition to the prepositional usage described by GUESTleenia, "withal" can be used adverbially to mean "at the same time" (Concise Oxford Dictionary). That's probably what was intended in the song. Either way, the origin is from Middle English "with + all", apparently.
