I found "Johnny is a roving blade" in the Clancy Brother's The Irish Songbook
and sing the Tommy Makem version fairly often. It's all about hard drinking, womanising and being happy under all circumstances, even in death. When asked what he would do when he dies, Johnny's rejoinder is that, "I'd look at St. Peter in the eye and tell him that I'm mighty dry". As Tommy Makem puts it, this song is to be done with strength
and I'd be absolutely the last to gainsay him!
