Rosin the Bow (trad.)

I've traveled this world all over
and now to another I go
and I know that good quarters are waitin'
to welcome old Rosin the Bow

to welcome old Rosin the Bow me boys
to welcome old Rosin the Bow
I know that good quarters are waitin'
to welcome old Rosin the Bow

when I'm dead and laid out on the table
a voice you will hear from below
sayin' send down a hogshead of whiskey
to drink with old Rosin the Bow

to drink with old Rosin the Bow me boys
to drink with old old Rosin the Bow
send down a hogshead of whiskey
to drink with old Rosin the Bow

then get a half dozen stout fellows
and let 'em all stagger and go
and dig a great hole in the meadow
and in it put Rosin the Bow

and in it put Rosin the Bow me boys
and in it put Rosin the Bow
dig a great hole in the meadow
and in it put Rosin the Bow

I hear that old tyrant approachin'
that cruel remorseless old foe
and I lift up me glass in his honour
take a drink with old Rosin the Bow

take a drink with old Rosin the Bow me boys
a drink with old Rosin the Bow
I lift up me glass in his honour
take a drink with old Rosin the Bow

to the memory of Rosin the Bow me boys
the memory of Rosin the Bow
lift up me glass in his honour
to the memory of Rosin the Bow

take a drink with old Rosin the Bow me boys
a drink with old Rosin the Bow
I lift up me glass in his honour
take a drink with old Rosin the Bow.
