Cigarettes And Whisky

  • (Words & music Red Ingle)

    Chorus:
    Cigarettes and whisky and wild, wild women
    They'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane
    Cigarettes and whisky and wild, wild women
    They'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane

    Once I was happy and I had a good wife
    I had enough money to last me for life
    I met Hamish and Muriel and we went on the spree
    And they taught me to smoke and drink whisky

    Cigarettes are a curse on the whole human race
    A man is a monkey with one in his face
    Take warning dear sister, take warning dear brother
    There's a fire on one end and a fool on the other

    Now I am broken, weary with age
    The lines on my face make a well-written page
    Write this on my headstone, write this on my grave
    To whisky and women this man was a slave

    As sung by Iain MacKintosh & Hamish Imlach
