GUEST,Annegi Lyr Req/Add: John Riley's Always Dry (Harrigan...) (15) Lyr Req: John Reilly 23 Feb 04

I am looking for the words of a song - I don't know the exact title but this is what I know of the lyrics. Can anyone fill in the missing bits
    I have an old companion boys
    John Reilly is his name
    In fair or stormy weather
    John Reilly's still the same
    His heart is like a mountain
    His honour you can't buy
    But with his elbow bent me boys
    John Reilly's always dry

    Bass's ale, by the pail
    He would order Suasannah to go out and buy
    Guiness's stout, then he'd shout
    Drink up boys and never say die
    Every night, he'd get tight .........

Thank you
