Too Much Good Whiskey

Pierce Campbell
written by Pierce Campbell


Of course, I couldn't leave out the whiskey drinkers when writing drinking songs!


I've been to the north , I've been to the south I've been east and west that's for sure But there's nothin' so grand, across this great land Than a noggin of whiskey in hand chorus There's just too much good whiskey about You can keep all your bitters and stout For others it's fine to sip on some wine But not for me, because I decree There's just too much good whiskey about I've tried other drink when whiskey was scarse But this I can tell you is true All else is for fools, there's no finer fuel Than whiskey, the grandest of jewels I came into this world, and I'll go out again When I do I'll have just one request Don't toast to me, I'll be already dead Raise a glass to the whiskey instead
