Lyrics
Now, my name is Jock Stewart
I'm a canny gaun man,
And a roving young fellow, I've been.

So be easy and free
When you're drinkin wi' me.
I'm a man you don't meet every day.

I have acres of land;
I have men at command;
I have always a shilling to spare.

Now, I took out my dog,
and him I did shoot,
All down by the River Kildare

So, come fill up your glasses
Of brandy and wine,
And whatever the cost, I will pay.
