THE WHISKY FLYER

 

Half a lifetime as the crow flies

From here to Lisaroe,

There are two ways I could travel

And I donít know which to go.

 

Refrain:

Ah ha ha my Whisky Flyer

Come on and carry me, come.

Ah ha ha My Whisky Flyer

Come on and carry me, home.

 

Iíll be travelliní till Thursday

If I catch the midnight train.

I could take the Whisky Flyer

And be there in ďSame againĒ.

 

Refrain:

Ah ha ha my Whisky Flyer etc

 

For far too many weekends,

I took the whisky flight

And I landed in the darkness

And left before daylight.

When I woke up in the morning,

I found to my dismay,

That the dream I had of Lisaroe

Was a nightmare flight away

 

Refrain:

Ah ha ha my Whisky Flyer etc

 

I walked down to the station

With my suitcase in my hand.

But the stationmaster told me

That the midnight train had gone.

 

Itís a lifetime as the crow flies

From here to Lisaroe;

There are two ways I could travel,

But only one Iíll ever go

 

Refrain:

Ah ha ha my Whisky Flyer etc
