The Hogmanay (New Year's Eve, La Saint-Sylvestre) version

My jug is near empty, my cup is not full
 But I'll share my last whiskey with you
And we'll tell the old stories, we've heard them before
 But we'll make them feel like new

<chorus:>
Raise a glass to the days just past
 And drink a cheer to the bonnie new year
The future's uncertain, the past is not clear
 I will share my last whiskey with you

We can ramble and rave, for there's worlds to be saved
 Let us talk to the wee sma' hours
We've got tall tales to tell, from heaven and hell
 Have a whiskey and tell us yours

<chorus>
-
There is much to be said, for a bottle of red
 And there's much to be said for beer
But when your amusin', excusin' or boozin'
 It's whiskey you'll want for a cheer

<chorus>

<last chorus:>
Raise a glass for the days just past
 And drink a cheer to the friends we held dear
For the future's uncertain, and the past is not clear
 I will share my last whiskey with you
 I will share my last whiskey with you.

The "Perfect for any other time of the year!" version

My jug is near empty, my cup is not full
 But I'll share my last whiskey with you
And we'll tell the old stories, we've heard them before
 But we'll make them feel like new

<chorus>
Raise a glass to the days just past
 And drink a cheer to the friends we hold dear
The future's uncertain, the past is not clear
 I will share my last whiskey with you

We can ramble and rave, for there's worlds to be saved
 Let us talk to the wee sma' hours
We've got tall tales to tell, from heaven and hell
 Have a whiskey and tell us yours

<chorus>
-
There is much to be said, for a bottle of red
 And there's much to be said for beer
But when your amusin', excusin' or boozin'
 It's whiskey you'll want for a cheer

<chorus>

<last chorus>
Raise a glass to the days just past
 And drink a cheer to the friends we held dear
For the future's uncertain, and the past is not clear
 I will share my last whiskey with you
 I will share my last whiskey with you
