Campbeltown Loch

This song is by Andy Stewart.

Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
Campbeltown Loch, och-aye
Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
I would drink you dry

Now Campbeltown Loch is a beautiful place
But the price of the whiskey is grim
How nice it would be if the whiskey was free
And the Loch was filled up to the brim

Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
Campbeltown Loch, och-aye
Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
I would drink you dry

I'd buy a yacht with the money I've got
And I'd anchor it out in the bay
If I wanted a sip, I'd go in for a dip
I'd be swimmin' by night and by day

Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
Campbeltown Loch, och-aye
Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
I would drink you dry

We'd have a gathering of the clans
They'd come from near and far
I can see them grin as they're wading in
And shouting, "Slainte mhor"

Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
Campbeltown Loch, och-aye
Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
I would drink you dry

But what if the boat should overturn
And drowned in the Loch was I?
You'd hear me shout, you'd hear me call out
"What a wonderful way to die"

Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
Campbeltown Loch, och-aye
Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
I would drink you dry

But what's this I see, ochone for me
It's a vision to make your blood freeze
It's the police afloat in a dirty big boat
And they're shouting, "Time, gentlemen, please"

Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
Campbeltown Loch, och-aye
Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whiskey
I would drink you dry
