This is another lovely old song. I’ve written it out in 3/4 timing, though it’s a little tricky in the chorus. It’s based on the Danny Doyle recording (link below and on the song sheets).
If you would like to see the notation, you can find it at https://www.irish-folk-songs.com/whiskey-on-a-sunday-song-lyrics-and-chords.html" target="_blank">irish-folk-songs.com in the key of C or G (6/8 and 3/4 timing). It's also played in 4/4 or 8/8, so you can choose which rhythm you'll use!
Here are the links to the songsheets:
- for guitar - L.13 Whiskey On a Sunday_Key G
- for ukulele - L.17 Whiskey On a Sunday_Key G
- for banjo - L.11 Whiskey On a Sunday_Key G
There is a YouTube clip of the song here (2 semitones higher so use a capo on 2nd fret if you want to play along): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd8I1PNV9io
