You might say this song is typically Irish with its simple concentration on that which makes life tolerable! It's a fine song to sing. I've never actually heard it sung either live, on record or whatever. I picked up in Soodlum's 100 Irish Ballads Volume 1
some years ago and have sung it loads of times to German audiences. It's a belter and goes well with my voice.
I later came across an Australian version of All for me grog
which has practically the same character.
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook but not yet in my personal repertoire
