No this is not The Pogues, it is Ottawa, Canada band Jimmy George, formed in 1991 and a mainstay at local pub The Duke of Somerset where they played every Sunday night and many other nights for over 10 years. They released two videos ("Four Feet From Shore" and "One Convention", toured nationally several times, appeared on Rita & Friends on CBC TV as well as many other TV appearances on MuchMusic, City TV, CBC, etc...
If you enjoy Modest Mouse, Mumford and Sons, Spirit of The West and The Pogues, you'll enjoy this song! Looking for a great St. Patrick's Day drinking song? You found it.

As I walked over by the rare old side
Saw an army of read-skins dressed in white
You're feeling foreign it's your dying right
One stiff whiskey you can drink whatever you like
You live bored or kinda you're nowhere
We all do our best to pretend you don't care
Feelin' foreign and it's your dyin' right
One stiff whiskey, you can drink whatever you like
Disquieting dreams in the middle of the night,
You toss your head, man, you know it's not right
You're feelin' foreign, it's your dyin' right,
One stiff whiskey, you can drink whatever you like.
Some is bored, some is poor,
Some is bored about being poor
Only the best shirt that I adore,
We don't need no black shirts that's for sure
Moving forward like a special bard,
Says "o.k. boys let's see your union cards"
Feelin' foreign it's my dyin' right
One stiff whiskey, I can drink whatever you like
It's alright, yeah, I can drink whatever I like.
