Howdy partner you look like you need it,
have a little whiskey on me.
Can you believe all the rain we've been having,
sometimes it's like-a living a sea.

So what is it soldier I guess it is a woman,
I've had my share of trouble like you.
I'll tell you a secret it's best to forget her,
that's a-what-a I try to do.

Well here's another whiskey to dampen the torture,
I've another double of gin.
Oh why she had to leave me with some dirty stranger,
I really can't a-reason begin.

Oh Daisy my Daisy oh why dy'have to leave me
it's not like I'm drunk all the time.
I know I forget some, I know you got lonesome
but daisy I still thought you were mine.
And when you stopped a-moaning about me and ma' roaming
I guessed our little love fixed the fight,
So why d'you have to leave me without you even seen-me
And walk out on Hallowe'en night.

Hey wait a minute stranger, just stay a little longer
the night is just beginning you see.
No need to go a running, you haven't said a word yet
please have another whiskey with me.
