"John Barleycorn" is a British folk song (Roud 164). The character of John Barleycorn in the song is a personification of the important cereal crop barley and of the alcoholic beverages made from it, beer and whisky. In the song, John Barleycorn is represented as suffering indignities, attacks and death that correspond to the various stages of barley cultivation, such as reaping and malting.Countless versions of this song exist. A Scottish poem with a similar theme, "Quhy Sowld Nocht Allane Honorit Be", is included in the Bannatyne Manuscript of 1568 and English broadside versions from the 17th century are common. Robert Burns published his own version in 1782, and modern versions abound. Burns's version makes the tale somewhat mysterious and, although not the original, it became the model for most subsequent versions of the ballad.Burns's version begins:There was three kings into the east,Three kings both great and high,And they hae sworn a solemn oathJohn Barleycorn should die.An early English version runs thus:There was three men come out o' the west their fortunes for to try,And these three men made a solemn vow, John Barleycorn must die,They ploughed, they sowed, they harrowed him in, throwed clods upon his head,Til these three men were satisfied John Barleycorn was dead.Earlier versions resemble Burns's only in personifying the barley, and sometimes in having the barley be foully treated or murdered by various artisans. Burns' version, however, omits their motives. In an early seventeenth century version, the mysterious kings of Burns's version were in fact ordinary men laid low by drink, who sought their revenge on John Barleycorn for that offence:Sir John Barley-Corn fought in a Bowl,who won the Victory,Which made them all to chafe and swear,that Barley-Corn must dye.Another early version features John Barleycorn's revenge on the miller:Mault gave the Miller such a blow,That from [h]is horse he fell full low,He taught him his master Mault for to knowyou neuer saw the like sir.

In explaining the transition from Victorian to modern paradigms of heavy drinking, Crowley focuses on representative fictions.
